Ana Santamaria Paez
Ana loves sport, waterpolo in particular.
Currently Ana has a love bird but we feel her pet collection will soon grow due to the volume of strays we see and once settled here in the UK.
I have always wanted to be an equine vet and decided to move to the UK after graduation, to gain experience in the country where horseracing originates. I competed in show jumping for over 14 years at national level, so have a very deep and familiar understanding about horse owner needs. To be fair the reason why I wanted to be a horse vet is to be able to fix my own horses!
After moving to the UK, I started to work at Pool House Equine Clinic as a stud vet assistant, gaining hands on experience in equine reproduction. After that season I moved to Newmarket and spent a year at Rossdales Equine Hospital. I was a diagnostic imaging intern, taking x-rays, bone cans, MRIs and CT scans from thousands of horses from all disciplines. When my internship ended, I had a bit of time off for travelling, then moved back to Hungary. Here I worked for one of the biggest private equine clinics of the country with special focus on equine dentistry.
As I missed the UK too much, I moved back in 2017 and started to work at Scott Dunn's Equine Clinic as a hospital-based clinician and ambulatory equine vet.
I love every aspect of equine general practice but have a special interest in dentistry, diagnostic imaging, internal medicine and orthopedics.
In my free time I love travelling, playing violin in pubs and dancing salsa or bachata.
I am very much looking forward to meeting all of our lovely clients and being of service with all of your equine enquiries.
She then moved in the veterinary industry focusing on pet nutrition, pharmaceuticals & Business support
