Practice Owner & Veterinary Surgeon


Read Andreea Ionescu bio

I graduated from the University of Veterinary Medicine in 2009 and have worked a few years in several Small Animal Practices and Hospitals in Bucharest, Romania and London.
In 2016 I realised I wanted a new challenge - to have my own practice where I can provide animal medicine service in my own way, at high standards.
I completed a Certificate of Specialisation in Small Animal Veterinary Medicine and I am due to sit my exam in October.
I always loved animals and they are an important part of our lives so I strongly believe we should treat them as we treat each other.
I am very fulfilled that I am a vet and am able to have the opportunity to help animals, and I do so with all my dedication and passion for their welfare.
I am looking forward to meeting you and your small furry companions and I promise they will be cared for by myself and my team as we would our own pets.

Yours sincerely,
Andreea Ionescu - MRCVS & OWNER Vets4Pets Pontypridd
