Abigail Semal BVSc MRCVS

Veterinary Surgeon

I graduated from Liverpool university in 1994, so have been a vet for 20 years now. My family have had a pet dog from before I was born and as a teenager I just decided being a vet was what I wanted to do. At university I decided I wanted a black Labrador and 4 years after leaving I finally got one, then I got another 6 years later. Immediately on leaving university I got 2 cats who lived an impressive 16 and 17&1/2 yrs, although unfortunately they are all now no longer with us. I have gained a lot of experience over the years and am dedicated to providing an excellent service to all my clients.

When not at work I enjoy meeting my friends for a nice meal out and walking my new dog, and of course relaxing! I also enjoy skiing and travelling to far flung places around the world, although it's been over a year since my last big trip now!

Practice Manager

Marina joined the team in 2015 and has brought with her a wealth of management experience. She has been around animals all her life and has a particular passion for dogs and horses. Having owned 4 Doberman Pinschers over the years, Marina has now downsized to a Miniature Pinscher named Twiggy with whom she is clearly smitten! Marina has ridden horses since the age of six and now shares her love of horses with her daughter who has been bitten equally hard by the equine bug!

Marina is currently studying towards her SQP qualification which, when completed, will entitle her to prescribe and/or supply certain veterinary medicines under the Veterinary Medicines Regulations. Marina is also our lead in the area of bereavement support for our clients.

Outside of work Marina is a passionate Manchester United supporter with her diary having to be checked regularly when trying to book time with her so she can check the match fixtures! She is also a keen lover of music and regularly attends concerts.
