Veterinary Surgeons

Alan HirschowitzAlan Hirschowitz - Partner and Veterinary Surgeon

Shortly after qualifying as a veterinary surgeon at Onderstepoort, University of Pretoria in 1997, I came over to the UK and worked as a permanent locum for a veterinary group. After a year, I joined Medivet. I managed the Medivet practice in Muswell Hill for 5 years, then worked at the Medivet Watford surgery for a year and then joined Medivet Radlett as a Partner in 2004. I have a special interest in rabbits, birds and other small exotics. I have two cats at home and two large fish tanks in which I keep cichlids from Lake Malawi.

Nursing Team

I grew up in an animal orientated family and kept dogs, rabbits and birds. In October 2000, I accepted a trainee nurse position with Medivet. Starting at Finchley and moving over the years to Enfield, Borehamwood and Muswell Hill surgeries. In February 2005 I became Head Nurse at Radlett and work with a great team of people. My favourite aspects of nursing are general anaesthetics/surgery and I really enjoy working with rabbits. I own a dog called Bess, a rabbit called Freesia and an 18 year old tortoise called Rambo.

Rebecca GibsonRebecca Gibson - Head Veterinary Nurse

I studied my BTEC National diploma in animal management at the College of West Anglia and finished it in 2007. During my second year I started my first job at a zoo. At this stage I wasn't sure what I wanted to do for a job, I just knew it should be with animals! After working at the Parrot Zoo in Lincolnshire, I decided that i'd love a career working with these amazing animals - as well as many others - in a nursing role. I am very much enjoy my role and developing my career with Medivet.
