Dan Manda MRCVS

Owner and Veterinary Surgeon

Hi, I'm Dan, your new Vet and Practice Partner at Vets4Pets Hastings.

I graduated in Bucharest, Romania in 2009 and I moved to the UK in March 2011.

During my years of experience I worked for different practices in Kent and South London as a permanent and locum vet, but only Vets4Pets have won my heart.

In my spare time I love playing tennis, so feel free to invite me for a game.

I look forward to providing your little friends the five star treatment they deserve!

Mike Lazar MRCVS

Veterinary surgeon

After graduating in Veterinary medicine in 2009 from the University of Bucharest, I pursued work within the veterinary pharmaceutical industry until 2014 when I decided to move to the UK having a main interest in farm animals.


Meanwhile my area of interest extended to small animals and exotics. On my days off I enjoy long walks on the seafront and play rugby.
