Mallorca has a new Veterinary Clinic and it has opened in Santa Ponsa.
CalviàVet, the new small and well equiped animal veterinary clinic opened last month in The Boulevard Business Park in Santa Ponsa.
The clinic offers a complete and modern veterinary service for pets with an emphasis on patient well-being and top-quality care as well as exceptional customer service.
The clinic has a full modern laboratory for in-house diagnostics, x-ray facilities, operating theatre, dental suite and an onsite grooming service. The practice has been custom-designed to help minimalise stress to patients during their visit. There is a separate dog and cat waiting area, top quality consulting rooms and hospitalisation with special glass-fronted kennels and a “no bars policy” . The emphasis is on making the animals feel comfortable and at ease, providing a non threatening environment , more like a hotel visit and not a “prison” during their stay.
The husband and wife team are Dr. Juan Fernandez and Dr. Anna Pink. They came to Mallorca six years ago and have been actively involved in the development of a clinic in Puerto Pollensa. For the past year, Anna has been working as a mobile veterinarian whilst CalviaVet was in development.
The couple met whilst working in England and moved to Spain with their two small children in search of a better quality of life for their family. Juan finished his veterinary studies at the prestigious Glasgow Vet School. Juan then worked in England for over 13 years, gaining valuable experience in small animal practice and developing his interest in orthopaedic and soft tissue surgery. He became Head Vet in a veterinary hospital in Surrey, leading a team of veterinary surgeons.
Anna also lived in the UK for 10 years after graduating from South Africa´s veterinary university, Onderstepoort, and worked in several small animal clinics in South East England. Anna completed a 2 year post graduate course in Small Animal Medicine and has a special interest in feline medicine and also enjoys soft tissue surgery.
CalviaVet is opposite Eroski and on the way to Habitat Golf, with plenty of off-street parking.
