Ovidiu grew up in a village in Transylvania and spent all his spare time helping with the family farm and playing the trumpet. After training at Bucharest Veterinary School and graduating in 2011, he soon decided to follow his career path and move to the UK. He spent one year in Lincolnshire, working in small animal practice then moved into the Cotswolds where he remained for five years doing mixed veterinary work and very quickly fell in love with the area. Ovidiu joined the team at the Mandeville in 2021 and enjoys all aspects and challenges of working in small animal practice and particularly enjoys surgery and ultrasonography. He has recently completed a certificate on Diagnostic Imaging. Outside of work Ovidiu will usually be seen along the River Colne trying to manage walking his toddler twins AND the buggy! He also enjoys swimming and skiing.
