Veterinary Surgeon


Margit joined the Animal Clinic in 2005. After graduating from the Veterinary University of Vienna in 1998 and gaining experience at a clinic in Austria, she was keen to broaden her horizon by working in the UK. She spent several years working in Walsall, Wellingborough and North-West London before deciding to find out what life was like South of the river (much better of course) and moved to Blackheath.
Margit is not only interested in providing the best care for cats and dogs, but also has a big heart for small furries and works closely with Greenwich Rabbit Rescue and Animal Samaritans.
