I hail from Split, a city on the Adriatic Coast of Dalmatia, Croatia. I obtained my degree in veterinary medicine from University of Belgrade in 1996 and have been living and working in Malta since 1999.

After obtaining a formal education in veterinary medicine and practicing for several years I realized that there were certain chronic diseases, behavioral problems and the epidemic of allergic conditions which standard veterinary treatment was not always effective in curing. This prompted me to search for additional methods and complementary practices that can be used in veterinary medicine.

By integrating certain complementary methods and remedies into my practice and introducing lifestyle and dietary changes, I have been successful in treating a wide variety of chronic health problems, including many for which there is no conventional treatment. In 2017 I completed my training as Certified Veterinary Acupuncturist with Chi Institute of Europe which has enabled me to successfully integrate  Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine into my practice and siginificantly improve my clinical results.

However, the discovery of alternative medical modalities did not lead me to disregard for my conventional education and training. In my opinion there are many aspects of conventional medicine that still cannot be replaced by any form of alternative means. This especially goes for surgical procedures as well as certain diagnostic procedures. On the other hand, when it comes to the treatment of chronic disease - various alternative methods, Chinese herbal formulas and acupuncture can in my experience offer solutions where conventional treatment alone does not work or gives mediocre results.

Regardless of the method I use my primary goal is to give the best treatment that will ensure the health and wellbeing of my patients.
