Dr Serina Filler

I graduated in 2012 from the University of Veterinary Medicine, Vienna (Austria) after spending most of my final year studying at Washington State University and UC Davis (USA). I entered vet school after founding a local rescue network to find homes for unwanted kittens from Austrian farms - becoming a vet was simply the next logical step.

I worked in small animal hospitals in Germany before relocating to the UK in 2015 to complete a rotating internship in small animal medicine and surgery at the University of Nottingham. After that, I caught the academic bug and completed a PhD on feline haemoplasmas with the University of Bristol. I have presented scientific findings at BSAVA and ISFM conferences and also been a reviewer for the Journal of Feline Medicine and Surgery. But, I could not be kept away from cats for very long and kept working in first opinion practices throughout those academic years.

I am currently working towards the ANZCVS Medicine of Cats qualification and genuinely thrilled to be working amongst these wonderful, equally "cat crazy" people. 

Dr Jeremy has created a clinic that I used to dream of - where everything is done to make hospital visits as relaxed as possible whilst offering the highest quality of medical attention to each individual cat.  

My clinical interests are infectious diseases, dermatology and pain management and I also have a passion for critical care medicine.

I have bred Selkirk Rex cats for almost a decade and was also part of the research groups working on feline genetic tests. Occasionally I still give educational talks for cat breeders and might be found doing veterinary checks at cat shows. 

In my spare time, I like to bake (a lot), run (a lot), do acrobatics, create art and find mini adventures in day-to-day life.
