‘Who doesn’t want to be a vet! Off course I wanted this, just like many other small children. At that moment I didn’t really realize what it all meant. I had a romantic image in which all animals will get better, everyone would come in crying and leave laughing. I can tell you, I was right (often..)!

I have the best job in the world! The variation in work, try my best to be the best, see a lot of different pets and owners, in the center of Amsterdam.. we heal a lot of animals, get lots of positive reactions, have a lovely team and we all work hard to make our clinic even better. With better care for your pets and sincere involvement with the owners, we have success! Come meet us soon..’

‘My name is Esther Vamos and I was a graduate veterinarian in the year of 2006. After graduating I worked in a big clinic in South-Holland for 3 years, with one of the first dental veterinarians. Since July 2009 I am working at our clinic, in my place of birth, and I love it! The clinic has a very rich history and most owners have come here for years. I love the warm, lovable mood in the clinic and I’m planning on working here for years.

As you can see under the tab ‘Tandheelkunde’ (Dentistry), the dental medicine in our clinic is fully modernized. In 2010 we’ve started to buy the newest equipment to give dental care on the highest level to our patients. Dentistry really is my passion. It is very rewarding, because almost every animal feels so much better afterwards! Owners often tell me that their pet is eating a lot better and playing more. They didn’t realize that their pet was in pain before the treatment. Since 2011 I’ve been following an Europian course to become a dental veterinarian. I already finished three subjects, let’s go study for part 4!

Besides dental veterinarian I’m also a ‘regular’ veterinarian. I help animals on consultations and preform surgeries. Being surrounded by sweet animals, their owners and my dear colleagues, thinking about what can be wrong with an animal and fix it, there is no better profession!’

‘When I was (very) little, I already knew I wanted to be a veterinarian. Not really a surprise, because I was always surrounded by cats, rabbits and ponies. After waiting a long time, I could finally start the study in September 2000. I’ve worked at several clinics in the Netherlands since I’ve graduated and gained as much experience as I could. From October 2010 on I’ve been working here at the clinic, ‘Dierenkliniek Vondelpark’. I love it very much and work 3 days a week.

My interests are mostly internal diseases and cats medicine. To keep myself up-to-date of all the new developments, I take a lot of courses and go to (international) congresses which all have cats medicine as subject. It is advantagious to have all the knowledge to help every cat in Amsterdam and surroundings..

In my spare time I like to go out with friends, have a nice dinner, dance salsa, tennis and taking photographs. Since December 2010 I have a lovely hairy roommate, named Daantje. Daantje loves to lie in the sun, sleep and dream about mice… I’m looking forward to meeting you and your pet at the clinic! See you soon!’

‘I graduated in 2013 at the University of Utrecht as a veterinarian for small animals. Since my graduation I’ve been working as a veterinarian and I love it! My interests are internal medicine, radiology and echographics and reproduction.

When I was a child I always had pets (little chicks, rabbits, ducks and hamsters) and now I have two Golden Retrievers named Smash and Vino. During my education I’ve gained a lot of experience by working as an assistant in another clinic and in the emergency clinic in Amsterdam. I also have worked as a volunteer at a sterilization/castration-project in Albania. In my spare time I like to play tennis, see my friends and travel. For my graduation-project I’ve been to New-Zealand and Australia, where I have learned a lot and enjoyed visiting these beautiful countries.

You can find me at the clinic most of the time on Tuesdays and Fridays and I look forward to giving the best care to your pet, together with my colleagues.’
