Dr Anna Mircheva from United Veterinary Clinic has done her externship in Belgium with Dr Ann Criel.
She is telling us more about it:
“I had the great opportunity to spent the last week of September at Dierenartsen praktijk in Kermt, Belgium with the amazing Dr Ann Criel and her team.
The clinic is well structured and very good equipped. From the beginning I was greeted with smiles, open hearts and good clinical discussions.
Every morning began with some good coffee, discussion of the daily schedule and treatment of the hospitalized animals. Then we continued with the assigned operations and examinations.
Due to my interest of soft tissue surgery Dr Ann invite me in the operation room and I assist her from the first to the last operation. Without hesitation she answered to all of my questions, she explains every step of the operations, and she allowed me to do a lot of things by myself. She is the kind of doctor that you can learn a lot from, because she has the experience and the patience.
Almost every day we had some great lunches – with Dr Ann’s family, team members and friends. I tried some delicious Belgian dishes in the company of amazing people. Everyone that I met was really nice, smiling and intelligent – it was a pleasure to met all of them.
I want to thank Dr Ann because she opened her practice, her home and heart for me. Thanks to her team and family and of course one big Thank you to Vets on the Balkans- it was an amazing week.
Vets on The Balkans express our gratitude to our sponsor of the program for Bulgaria BLUE SKY COMMERCE! All is possible because of them.

They support the willing and desire of the veterianrians from East Europe to grow and improve their knowledge.

One of the vets, Dr Yordan Yordanov, who was able to be there, share with us:
“I am grateful for the opportunity to visit the Belgian congress for small animals, I am extremely impressed by the high level of lectures, the hospitality of the organizers Anne Kriegel, Bob Prossmasms and Mark Vanghelwell, and the good organization of the event. I’ve made many new acquaintances, and I hope other colleagues like me will discover the benefits of SAVAB.”
After something like this we are strongly believe that hand by hands we all be better and we live in a wonderful world. We would like to express our gratitude to SAVAB for such a great opportunity and you should know that you are big part of our Balkan family!
