Hello, my name is Iva, I am originally from Bulgaria. I have a Masters degree in Veterinary medicine, which I earned in 2011. I come from a pet mad family with both my Dad and Sister also working as Vets and my Mum working as a zoo engineer. After graduating as a Vet I began working with my Dad with small animals and poultries. I have a special interest in Neurology and Veterinary Dentistry. in 2014 I achieved an Honour Code Certificate in 'Fundamentals of Clinical Trials' from Harvard, USA. In January 2015 I achieved a Level 5 Diploma in Veterinary Practice Management at the Institute of Leadership and Management London. For me it's a real privilege to be a vet and to help the patients stay healthy and happy. In my spare time I love to spend time with my family and visit new places.

Being born in a vet family i have always known i'm going to be a vet one day. 

I used to work in a veterinary laboratory and was helping my dad who is a vet too.

I enjoy all aspects of companion animal medicine and my specific area of interest is Ophtalmology, Internal medicine and Surgery.

Outside of work i enjoy going out for walks and spending time with my family.

Veterinary Surgeon

My name is Eva and I graduated as a vet in 2020 at the university of Extremadura, Spain.

I've always wanted to be a vet and as I'm a very stubborn person I never stop until I achieve my dreams.
I love all kinds of animals but I'd describe myself as a cat person since I've always had cats at home. I'm interested in all kinds of surgical procedures, but I particularly love emergency surgery.
During my free time I love spending time with my family and friends, practicing sports and learning new languages (I speak 3 different languages and I'm learning a fourth one!

Hi, my name is Nick! I used to work as a team leader at Coca-Cola, but my passion for animals has brought me here to Vets4Pets. I work as a VCA and help with managing the practice with my wife Iva. I particularly enjoy assisting the veterinary surgeon in theatre, and I am studying towards a level 2 award in anaesthesia and sedation to further my skills.

I have had animals all my life and I currently own a German shepherd called Rex. I love working with animals and couldn't think of anything more rewarding.

Hi I’m Hollie! I’m from Essex but I have now moved to Oxford with my husband! I have a FdSc in Animal Behaviour and Welfare and have now almost finished the Bsc! I work as a nursing assistant as well as on reception but I am studying towards a Level 2 award in anaesthesia and sedation to improve my clinical skills and to aid the veterinary surgeons in theatre! This will allow me to help the clinical team inside much more which I find very rewarding!
I really enjoy working in the vets and getting to know all of our patients! I have always lived with animals, at my family home we have 3 cats but I currently have 2 dogs, 4 rabbits and 2 gerbils!

Martin Atanasov

Client Care Manager

Read Martin Atanasov bio

My name is Martin and I am currently Client Care Manager at Oxford Cowley Vets4Pets. I graduated BA in Business Administration and MSc in Human Resources. I am living and getting live and work experience in UK for almost 4 years. I have decided to join the Team because I have desire for customer service and new challenges. I`ve got few years experience in hospitality industry and I think that would be helpful in my new role.

When I was child I was dreaming of becoming a vet but the life offered me something else. Now I am a step closer to my childhood dream, for sure is not the same doing the front office job but I still have contact with our patients and I really enjoy working with them. I am taking care of two pets at home so taking care of hundreds more is like a mission and passion.
