Overview: Please contact me via e-mail.

I am a graduate of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine at the Warsaw University of Life Sciences. Since I was an adolescent, I have dreamt of moving abroad. Since January, 2019 I have worked as a veterinary surgeon in the United Kingdom.
I have been registered with the RCVS since 5th of December, 2018.
After having graduated and completed all the documentation necessary, I almost immediately embarked upon the demanding adventure into the world of veterinary medicine.
At my first job, I have learnt the basics of inductive clinical reasoning and acquired the fundamentals on which I was able to build in the future.
At my second and third position, I was given an opportunity not only to improve my medical workups, but also to obtain education and valuable surgical practice. Due to variety of socio-economic status of the clientele, I have successfully developed diverse personal and medical approaches. There I was able to practice the fundamentals of medical imaging such as ultrasonography and radiography.
My most recent position in the UK allowed me to build upon already solid foundations with great help of more experienced colleagues. I have easily adapted to the workings of a UK veterinary practice. I learned the benefits of working in a large team.
During the productive period of four years (of which nearly two years was in the UK) I have accumulated tremendously valuable experience and developed a broad skill set which I strive to outline below:
1) Main focus: internal medicine (contagious diseases, ophthalmology also listed below).

Inner workings of a living body are my main interest and I am always looking forward to pursue further development of my skill set. I put emphasis on anamnesis which I deem a crucial part of arriving at a correct diagnosis.

a. PU/PD workup – diagnosing and management of Cushing’s disease, renal diseases, diabetes mellitus and insipidus
b. Anaemia workup – particularly rich experience in diagnosing and treatment of tick-borne diseases, such as Babesia, Anaplasma, Ehrlichia; diagnosing and management of chronic kidney disease
c. Vomiting workup – diagnosing and treatment of hyperthyroidism in cats, prostatitis, pancreatitis, uraemia and drug-induced vomiting, foreign bodies
d. Diarrhoea workup – I have successfully dealt with a prominent load of haemorrhagic gastroenteritis in dogs, parvoviral enteritis, coronaviral enteritis, parasitic infections, inflammatory bowel disease, exocrine pancreatic insufficiency, adverse food reactions
e. Abdominal distension workup – abdominocentesis, ultrasound, fluid sampling
f. Respiratory symptoms workup – I can diagnose and effectively manage patients with pulmonary oedema, pulmonary fibrosis, feline viral rhinotracheitis, canine tracheobronchitis, tracheal collapse in dogs
g. Ophthalmology – conjunctivitis, corneal ulcers, blepharitis, uveitis and ocular emergencies needing enucleation which I am able to perform
2) Dermatology:
a. I can evaluate skin scraping samples, ear swab samples. I have experience in recognising canine Malassezia dermatitis/otitis, bacterial otitis, several types of skin neoplasms and benign tumours (based on biopsy samples), such as lipoma, mast cell tumour, melanoma, mammary neoplasms, histiocytoma. I am confident in managing food adverse reactions, canine atopic dermatitis, hypothyroidism, ectoparasitic infections, pyoderma, perianal fistula
3) Surgery and emergency care – I have performed procedures listed below on numerous occasions (and more are included in my Competency Assessment file):
a. Queen midline spay
b. Queen flank spay
c. Small, medium and reasonable experience with large bitch midline spay
d. Small, medium bitch pyometra spay and some experience with large bitch pyometra spay
e. Feline scrotal castration
f. Canine prescrotal closed and open castration
g. Canine cryptorchid castration
h. Canine tail amputation
i. Canine transpalpebral enucleation
j. Dental works: scaling and extractions of each tooth – both standard and surgical, dogs and cats
k. Ferret open castration
l. Burring rabbits’ teeth under anaesthesia
m. Lumpectomies: dogs and cats
n. Surgical management of wounds
o. Feline urethral deobstruction
p. Management of pulmonary oedema
q. Management of anaphylaxis
4) I hold OCQ(V) - CA (Companion Animals) and I am authorised as an Official Veterinarian (OV) until 17th May 2023 – I have issued numerous pet passports
5) Dog Rescue – at my most recent position I have examined and treated dogs at one of the local dog rescue centres on a weekly basis
I would be very excited to broaden my surgical repertoire with the help of a more experienced surgeon.
