Our Vets

General surgery

Dr. Ahmed Hamdy Afifi

Dr. Ahmed graduated from the faculty of Veterinary Medicine from Cairo University in 2008. He went on to open his own clinic in Cairo where he treated and saw a variety of complicated cases being brought to him. His experiences and qualifications have led him to Animal Specialist Clinic, where he has been treating animals for 4 years.

He is also a fitness enthusiast and loves to relax on the beach on days off. Besides his love for his job as a veterinarian, astronomy is his thing!

“I consider myself very blessed & lucky as I have a job that I am passionate about.  I couldn’t imagine doing anything else other than working with animals. There is nothing more satisfying for me than healing a sick animal. I’m often told by reception that my consults are overrunning in time, but that’s because I am too busy cuddling your pets!”


Orthopaedics Specialist

Dr. Varghese Samuel Mathai, Ph.D

Dr. Varghese gained a doctorate in Veterinary surgery and radiology from the Kerala Veterinary and Animal Sciences University, after which he continued his practice in Penang, Malaysia for three years. He came to Dubai for a holiday and found his perfect fit at Animal Specialist Clinic. His area of expertise lies in treating long bone and spinal fractures, physiotherapy, ophthalmic surgery, advanced soft tissue surgery, wound management and hospital management.

When Dr. Varghese is not busy healing pets, he enjoys drawing, painting and is a tech enthusiast. He enjoys singing, so if you’re lucky, you might catch his tunes. He and his wife welcomed their first child, Aaron in 2020!

“I chose to work at Animal Specialist Clinic as I liked the attention to detail and ongoing improvement that is worked towards in all aspects of patient care. Presently I work as a Senior Veterinarian, Orthopaedic and Surgery Specialist, however, my area of interest includes all aspects of Veterinary Surgery.”
