Hi, my name is Liv. I graduated as a vet from the University Berlin (Germany) in 2008 and spent 5 years in a private mixed Practice in South Gloucestershire. I completed my doctor thesis in 2010 in an Orthopaedic research project at the University Charite Berlin. I joined Companion Care Bridgend as a Partner in June 2013. I am currently working towards GPCert/PSC in dermatology.

My interests in small animal medicine are in particular Endocrine Diseases and Dermatology. Outside of work I enjoy driving my ponies through the country lanes with my little dachshund Hugo by my side.
