Veterinary Surgeon

Melania MRCVS

Melania has been practising in London since 2016 and is an integral part of our award winning London Vets Team!

Mel qualified in Italy in 2012 and decided upon pursing a role treating pets in London to enhance her excellent knowledge of both surgery and medicine.  Mel is currently furthering her surgical skill by undertaking an advanced certificate in small animal surgery which means she’s spending a lot of time in our busy operating theatre!  Still greatly enjoying the interaction with pets and their owners, Mel takes pride in managing complex cases and building excellent relationships with all our clients.

An immensely proficient small animal practitioner, Mel is confident in all routine soft tissue surgery, radiology and ultrasound.

Melania usually works from Monday to Saturday. Book your appointment to see wonderful Melania!
