Alexandra Pirvulescu MRCVS
3 years after graduating one of the best Romanian Veterinary Universities in 2009, decided to further my career as a Veterinary surgeon and moved to UK.
Ever since, I have developed my knowledge of small animal and exotic medicine through working in several practices around London and Essex area.
I enjoy all aspects of medicine, with a special interest in Internal medicine and emergency. A quite recent interest that I have discovered are exotic animals (anything from small furries to creepy crawlies), and being a complete softie when it comes to ferrets – thanks William!
Have started as a locum Vet in Thamesmead since the day has opened in March and loved the team and the clients so much that I decided to stay as the resident Vet.
When I’m not working, I’m a keen reader, especially psychology, enjoy the great outdoors and miss terribly one of my greatest passions – winter sports, especially snowboarding. Unfortunately, I rarely have the time for them as the weather is too mild for a good ol’ fresh snow.
Despite growing up as a ‘dog person’ , I’ve ended up enjoying the company of cats. After sadly loosing Apple earlier this year (a gorgeous 15 yrs tortie that I have rehomed from work), Eejit – a 2 yrs abandoned cat has made his way to my heart. Most of the time when I’m at home I usually have to follow him around to make sure he’s not got into trouble again ie letting Sunshine, the tarantula out of her enclosure. Oh…yes. I do have a tarantula as well. Well..she needed a home, so what was I supposed to do?
