Dr Andreea Ionescu
JVP & Veterinary Surgeon
I become a vet in 2009 from the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine Bucharest, Romania. This is the job I have always dreamt of having since I was a child. Growing up my family had all type of pets in the house - dogs, ducks, chickens, even lambs in the winter - and all this in a 2 bedroom flat in the middle of Bucharest! So, in this way, I developed a very strong empathy for animals and the desire to become a "doctor for animals".
During the 5th year of University, me and two of my colleagues opened a Veterinary Clinic in Bucharest - where I worked as a veterinary surgeon for 6 years. After I gave birth to my son (now 2 years old), me and my husband decided to come to the UK to start a new life and to settle down. So, in January 2016 we did the big move! I started my journey as a vet in a practice in London, where I worked for around 6 months. After this I decided to set up my own practice, where I have the freedom to do medicine my way.
I am very interested in Small Animal Internal Medicine, Animal Behavior and Emergency and Critical Care. I love to spend my free time with my son and family, and we spend a lot of time outdoors. We enjoy camping, exploring the mountains and being at the seaside. I love to listen good music, to read a good book and to go skating or swimming. I miss having a pet - we intend to have one in the near future after we settle down here. In the meanwhile I can't wait to take care of your beloved pets in our practice here at Vets4Pets Pontypridd!
