About me

I successfully completed my veterinary medicine training at the University of Košice in 2004 and obtained an international PhD degree.  In the years 2008-2011 I went on to complete the highest possible education in veterinary dermatology at the University of Edinburgh in Great Britain and earned my status as a European specialist in veterinary dermatology.

I have given many lectures at international congresses and professional events around the world.  I am the author, co-author and reviewer of numerous scientific and professional publications.  I provide dermatological and dermatohistological services in our specialized veterinary hospital, Anima in Žilina, and at several specialized referral hospitals in Great Britain.

I have received several prestigious awards in recognition of my efforts:

  • Young Investigator's prize for the best research abstract
  • Award for the best scientific paper in Florence
  • The Ulli Runge Harms Award from the European Association of Veterinary Dermatologists in Brussels for the best publication and presentation of a scientific project

Why not listen to me in conversation?  I have contributed to:

  1. A veterinary dermatologist is a veterinarian who has been trained and successfully passed internationally recognized examinations and who holds a certificate and diploma from a specialist European college.

  2. Upon successful completion of the required specialized education, the certification process includes requirements for clinical research, publication in a scientific journal, medical presentations and the demonstration of above-standard clinical case management.

  3. The last step in the certification process is the successful completion of a multi-day comprehensive, complex examination provided by the European College of Veterinary Dermatology*. Only dermatologists with diplomatic status (ECVD or DECVD diploma) are recognized as experts by the veterinary community. The graduate is re-evaluated in terms of professional activity, including research and further education, every 5 years to ensure that he keeps up with new research and further developments in this field.

*European College of Veterinary Dermatology is an organization of veterinary specialists with a specialized certificate in veterinary dermatology. These experts have obtained the status of a certified specialist. The ECVD is recognized by the European Board of Veterinary Specialists and must maintain the highest standards of training and certification.


Why should I bring my pet to see a specialist and not just an ordinary veterinarian?  A specialist can offer:

In addition to Slovakia, I work in several clinics abroad. However, I can also offer service in the form of a telemedicine consultation. This means that most problems can be solved from the comfort of your own home.
