Hello and welcome to Hastings Vets4pets! I graduated in Bucharest, Romania in 2009 and 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. Our aim is to treat your pets and ensure we make that difference in their lives. Our surgery has all the latest technology, such as Ultrasound scanner with Colour Doppler, digital X-Ray unit, ECG, most advanced general anaesthetic monitoring equipment and blood machines, large comfy and separated dog and cat wards. In my spare time I enjoy playing tennis, therefore feel free to invite me for a game.

My name is Otto, and this behind me is Hunor, my personal 24/7 Vet and proud Owner. Hunor decided to move to the lovely Hastings so that I can enjoy swimming in the sea. Hunor is highly thought of amongst his colleagues for both his surgical and medical skills. I am sure that you and your pet will adore him! In our spare time, Hunor and I, go for big walks and visit new places.

I have graduated in Romania in 2019 and before that I was thrilled to do my student practice in Italy and Greece as I very much like to travel and learn about different cultures. 

I have always loved animals with all my heart, yet this profession requires more than that and I get very motivated by the challenging part of it. Above all, my constant endeavour is to ensure the health and welfare of the animals commited to my care. 

In my spare time I enjoy cooking, watching movies and hiking.

Ever since I can remember I wanted to be a vet as I always loved animals and had an interest in medicine. That dream finally came true when I graduated from vet school in Romania after 6 years of studying. 

My goal is to help you give your pet the best life possible. 

In my spare time I enjoy drawing, reading, horseback riding and exploring nature. 

My preferred means of transportation is the bicycle, so you will often find me cycling up and down the hills of Hastings and St. Leonards.

I have wanted to work with animals since I was a child. I attended Hadlow College where I graduated with an Animal Management degree in 2011. I have previously worked as Animal Care Assistant with the RSPCA and I gained my Registered Veterinary Nurse (RVN) status through a diploma at Plumpton College.

I have a fiery ginger cat named Wilbur and I hope to rescue more animals in the future.
I like to spend my days off with family and friends

I have grown up surrounded by lots of pets and have always wanted to have a career with animals. I have previously worked in a pet shop and as an Animal Care Assistant for the RSPCA where I gained my NVQ in Animal Care and Welfare. I enjoy spending time with friends and family and having playtime with my cats or walking my two dogs along the beach.

Having graduated university with a Bachelor of Science in Equitation Science, I decided to change and pursue a career with small animals. I have travelled and worked with competition horses in Canada and all around the UK, and have also previously been an ice skating elf at Lapland. My only pets are fish, so be sure that your pets will receive a lot of attention from me, as the fish are not too happy on being cuddled. When I am not working, I am either at the gym, or travelling all around the country attending car shows, seeing friends or tending to my 1987 VW Caddy pick up. I enjoy challenges, I completed the Brighton Marathon in 2017 and 2019

Before joining Vets4Pets Hastings I was a pet shop manager for almost 5 years. I am very much a people person, but I also have a huge passion for animals (specially small fluffies!), so I’m lucky to combine both sides on my everyday job.

In my spare time I love cooking, following speedway, watching football and I love being close to the seaside - so walking along the seafront is where you’ll find me on a nice day.

Previous to joining Vets4Pets Hastings, I worked with horses for 14 years in a busy riding school and livery yard. I have always been an animal lover and it has been my ambition to work in a small animal veterinary practice for a long time, so I was thrilled to have the opportunity to join the lovely team here!


I currently own a horse named Ollie and two rescue cats named Poppy (pictured) and Fonzy.


Outside of work I enjoy taking Ollie out for rides through the countryside and spending time with family and friends.
