Veterinary Surgeon

Viraf MRCVS

Viraf joins us from Melbourne, Australia after coming to the UK in 2017, where he began working in practice in Berkshire, before joining our permanent Vet Team here in London.

Initially unsure whether to study human or animal medicine, thankfully for us Viraf’s acute fondness for small furry companions won through and he graduated from Melbourne University in 2015.
With a keen interest in ultrasound, neurology and soft tissue surgery, Viraf is looking forward to continuing to grow his surgical experience over the next few years. Viraf puts his long standing client relationships high on the list of what makes him a great vet!

When not in surgery Viraf enjoys playing ice hockey, reading and painting landscapes and mountains from his travels.

Viraf usually works on Monday, Wednesday and Friday! Book your appointment to see wonderful Viraf!

Francesca MRCVS

Francesca joined our South London Vet Team in 2017 after a very impressive career journey so far.
Qualifying in 2013 from Bologna, Italy, when Francesca first arrived in the UK she practised as an intern at an extremely popular referral centre, just outside of London before moving on to work in a busy hospital in Berkshire.

Francesca is an extremely experienced General Practitioner and soft tissue surgeon, now expanding her vast talent to carrying out ultrasound diagnostics within the surgery.

Being an OV Practioner means Francesca is available to give advice and issue passports/export certificates to small animal companions wanting to travel.

Being a huge small animal lover, she has a much loved 11 year old crossbreed called Jack.
When not in surgery Francesca likes abstract painting, dancing and surfing in her favourite location, Portugal!
