Dr. Metje Maria Zegers
Hi pet lovers!
A brief introduction of myself: Dr. Metje
I have studied at the Ghent University in Belgium and graduated in 2008. With a strong love for animals during my childhood, the choice to study Veterinary Medicine was easily made. After an internship in the Netherlands, I worked as an all-round veterinarian in mixed veterinary practices in the Netherlands, where I gained wide experience in the veterinary field with all kind of animals (mainly horses and small animals).
Looking for a new opportunity, I decided to relocate to sunny Dubai together with my husband in February 2014, shortly after our arrival I became part of the ABVC team. I thoroughly enjoy all aspects of veterinary care, particularly surgery and internal medicine, but overall the contact with clients and their pets. All the different nationalities here in Dubai make my daily work very varying. Our family has expanded with the birth of our daughter in 2016 here in Dubai. I love spending time with my family, traveling, being outdoors (when it is not too hot), horse riding and reading a good book.
So far living and working in Dubai has been a very positive experience and hopefully many years to follow!
