Javier Herrero DVM OCQ(V)-CA GPCert(SAS) PgC(SAS) MRCVS
Owner & Veterinary Surgeon
Originally from Spain, I decided to move to Great Britain over 10 years ago and to develop my career with companion animals. After working for few years as a consultant and veterinary surgeon in a first opinion practice and also providing emergency service and care in a dedicated specialist Out of Hours service, I decided together with Rafael to open Vets4pets Sidcup and Vets4pets Sydenham.
I have special interest on internal medicine, diagnostic image and surgery. My dedication has led me to pursue further studies and specialization. After two years of intense courses taught by specialists and examinations I finally achieved a Certificate in Small Animal Surgery in 2016. Now we are able to perform more advanced and technical surgical procedures, which enables us to offer better care and wider services to our patients.
In addition to this, I have been awarded with a further post graduate Certificate in Small Animal Surgery in 2018. Currently, I am studying towards a Certificate in Endoscopy and Minimal Invasive Surgery, commonly know as key hole surgery. This is upgrading the service and options for our patients, minimising damage and considerably improving post operative recovery, something that some of our patients have already benefited from.
My little spare time is filled with a beautiful daughter, a naughty cat and a noisy parrot.
