Vet Nurse

Paul was a human nurse back in the Philippines. When he arrived in the UAE way back in 2012 he landed a job as a Veterinary nurse. He has a soft spot for dogs, hence, was stuck “furever” with 3 rescued chihuahuas! He has no plans on going back to being a human nurse as he found his “true calling” in the Veterinary field.



Lia has been working as a Receptionist since 2012 and moved from Abu Dhabi to Dubai. She believed that working in a Veterinary Clinic is a blessing in disguise plus ending up with 3 rescued chihuahuas on the side is a Winner!



Marcel is working as a Receptionist in Pets Health Veterinary Clinic since it’s opening.

After working with some hospitality companies back in the Philippines, she wanted a change and moved to the UAE in 2016. She wanted to work and take care of animals in a positive way. Here’s a fun fact, when she was in her Mom’s tummy, she already had a dog named Bon Jovi, so she believes she was destined to work with animals. Working at PHVC has been incredibly rewarding experience and Marcel is grateful she was given the chance to join the team.
