Cristian Buzgau MRCVS

Veterinary Surgeon

I am Cristian Buzgau and I am a veterinary surgeon. I was born in a small town in the north west of Romania. After I finished High School, I went to Cluj Napoca to study Veterinary Medicine. Vet School was a nice time of my life and I am very happy that I chosen to study there.

I graduated in 2016 at the University of Agricultural Science and Veterinary Medicine from Cluj Napoca, Romania. After graduation I came to the UK and since then worked as a vet.

When I'm not a vet, I like to go out, visit new places and socialise.

Veterinary Surgeon

I have graduated from the College of Veterinary Medicine in Romania 3 years ago. After I qualified, I started to work in Scotland as a veterinary surgeon. In December 2017 I joined the Hartlepool Vets4Pets team. I love working with animals and make them feel better.

I have my own animal, a nice, special, clever and unique cat that waits for me every evening when I finish work.

I enjoy working everyday with a lovely team, nice clients and their pets.
