LUIGI VENCO, DVM , SCPA, Dipl EVPC, Pavia, Italy
“When I first met Liliya Mihaylova, I immediately thought she was shy. Then working with her I realized that she is not shy at all. She is an incredibly sweet and respectful person. And the same sweetness and respect she puts into her profession and into relationships with the people around her. We had the opportunity to work together for months, we met each other at courses and conferences in every part of the world and she is always smiling. I was able to appreciate how brilliant she is as a veterinarian but if ask me if I prefer her human or professional aspect I can tell you that I prefer both and that if they are in the same person and if you’re lucky enough to be her friend , you’re very lucky, as I am”
Dr Gergana Vitanova, veterinarian in veterinary clinic Albaitar, Ruse, Bulgaria
“Life meets you with different people. Some of them manage to provoke you to do your best with their example. Dr. Mihailova is exactly that. There is no way that you will not be infected by this difficult combination – uncompromising professionalism and the rarely found kindness.”
Florin Delureanu,DVM, MRCVS, veterinarian from Romania
“I met Liliya in the summer of 2017 through a veterinary medical event in Bucharest. During the lunch break she sat next to me and asked me where and for how long i work as a veterinarian and if the clinic where i work is a big one. Even though the discussion from that day was short, she left me a good impression. About 5 months later, in the winter of the same year, I decided to contact her with the intention of spending my winter holidays in the clinic where she works (United Veterinary Clinic-Varna) to develop even more my knoledge. I was pleasantly surprised by the speed and promptness with which she answered me, the answer being a positive one. After arriving in Varna, Liliya was very polite and intended to give me a lift from the bus station to the clinic. When i arrived at the clinic, i was very excited and wanted to help because there were so many patients waiting and Liliya was very open minded from day one and offered me the opportunity to participate with her in a few surgeries. She also had a pleasant attitude both at work and outside of work, was very friendly and gave me many tips. She has contributed a bit to my present by encouraging me and supporting me to move to another country (England) to develop myself. Because she is in a continuous development especially in the field of cardiology and endoscopy, i can say that she has given me many details, tips and tricks regarding this field! I have a lot of respect for Liliya, and i am grateful for the nice experience she offered me i am honored to know her!”
Dr Spas Spasov, veterinarian at veterinary clinic Dr Antonov, Varna, Bularia
“What can I say about Lily.
We’ve known each other for almost 7 years.
She is one of the sweetest people I know, dedicated to her work and friends.
You can always count on her, both for work and if you just want to talk to her about things other than work.
Lily is a person who motivates us to be better professionals and people.
Her desire for continuous development is inspiring.
What else can I tell you about her … she’s always late, hahaha , she’s often quite distracted because she thinks about 100 things hahaha.
Big animal lovers: she has a dog, a cat, two parrots and a fish.
Quite often, she takes care of a wounded wild boar, for example, an owl, a gull, a sparrow, a pigeon, etc. .
When you go to visit her, you actually go to a small home full of friendly animals.
Of course, these things are not enough to describe the Lily as a person and a friend.
In conclusion, Lilia is a wonderful doctor and friend, and I am more than happy to have her in my life”
THANK YOU Liliya for being such a good friend of Vets on The Blakans!
