The Team

Dalya Livy

Veterinary Surgeon BVSc MVS CertVA CertSAM PGDip(PainMgt) MRCVS RCVS

I graduated from Sydney University in 2001. After working in small animal hospitals for a couple of years and completing an internship, I arrived in the UK in 2004. Having fallen in love with the UK (yes, even the rain!), I’m now a proud dual citizen and a mum to 4 small children who are being carefully taught not to refer to trousers as pants.

Professionally my particular passion is improving the quality of life for our elderly patients, as it combines my two areas of special interest - complicated internal medicine problems and pain management.

J.G.Stan Livy

I qualified from the Royal ‘Dick’ SVS, Edinburgh in 2002 and worked at several practices throughout Scotland and England before coming to Magnolia House. I’ve been treating exotics since 2007 and gained my certificate as well as publishing a few articles on both medicine and surgery of the less common species.

Away from the clinic, and when not parenting, I am recovering rower having formerly been a Commonwealth medalist and 4 times National champion.
