Joao DVM MRCVS Veterinary Surgeon

Having originally graduated from Lisbon University in Portugal, Joao (also known by JT) originally joined the Clent Hills Vets team in 2016. After a brief interruption, he returned to our Hagley team in 2021, as a Senior Vet. 

Joao enjoys most aspects of small animal practice, from internal medicine to surgery and imaging, and has a keen interest in behavioural medicine. He founded The Mind Vet Ltd in 2021, where he sees dogs and cats with behavioural problems, on a referral basis. 

Joao has called the UK his home since 2016. Since then, he got married to his long-term university love and together they've adopted their 3 furry girls – Panda, the mischievous cat, Marmalade, the world’s sweetest dog and Puffin, the cutest kitten. 

Joao's non-veterinary passion is Yoga – he has been practicing traditional yoga for over a decade and teaching for 8 years. So, if you can’t find him at the Practice, he's either enjoying the English outdoors with his doggie or teaching a yoga class nearby.
