About Yoav

After graduating in 1996 from The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel, Yoav spent 7 years working for both a specialised farm and small animal practices in Israel. In 2003 he got fed up with the sun and decided to move to the UK with his young family where for 5 years he worked as a Senior Farm Clinician at the Royal Veterinary College, London.

In 2008 he joined Friars Moor farm vets’ team, where he enjoys all aspects of progressive farm work and is sometimes allowed to do some small animal work too. As one of Friars Moor Vet Clinic’s directors Yoav is committed to the continuous development of client services and level of care.

During his spare time, he practices Tai Chi and loves spending time with his wife and two children, their two cats ‘Layla’ and ‘Messy’ and their accident-prone Springer Spaniel, ‘Chilli’.
