"What a wonderful help for foreign vets that want to work in the UK!! I came to England a few months ago to improve my vet skills and at the beginning I was a little bit lost... I didn´t have any idea about how to register with the RCVS, how to contact vets and practices, what they would expect from me..... and millions of other doubts!!!! VetAbroad helped me so much!!!! I strongly recommend this to all the vets interested in exploring other countries and learn about our profession at the same time. Thank you so much!!!"

About VetAbroad

Founded in 2010 by Dr. Luis Sainz-Pardo, VetAbroad® initially specialised in helping vets qualified outside the UK in making a successful career in the most progressive and lucrative veterinary market in Europe. Dr. Luis used his 23 years of knowledge and experience in the UK as an employer and employee to support vets in their relocation and adaptation.


New chapter

In 2020, Dr. Luis stepped out and Dr. Andreia Dias stepped in. Dr. Andreia had also gone through the process of relocating abroad, starting a successful career in another country and adjusting to different ways of working while developing her own personal and professional growth. She has a strong belief in how the growth of each veterinary professional positively impacts the entire world and realised that there are many other colleagues looking to develop in countries other than the UK. From that to expanding the network of opportunities worldwide was a small step, always underpinned by doing the best possible work in service of the veterinary professional.


At VetAbroad®, we’re always trying to increase our network and opportunities worldwide. We specialise in supporting vets looking for clinical roles, particularly in Europe, but want to keep offering more opportunities for the veterinary professional.
