Sam Goldman

Sam co-founded Nirvana Vets after several years working in veterinary practice. His inspiration to setup Nirvana Vets came after he sadly lost a family pet and had to say goodbye to his black lab in a consult room before he trained to be a vet.

 

“Looking back, I would have much preferred to have had a home visit at such a difficult time. However it just wasn’t an option with the profession being generally very short-staffed, the vast majority of practices had to keep their vets in the building. It has been hugely rewarding delivering Nirvana Vets services and acting as Director of a company that I wished existed several years ago”. 

Sam is also still a practicing vet and works as a locum between his duties at Nirvana Vets and is also an airline pilot. In his spare time Sam enjoys socialising, walking on Dartmoor, stand up paddle boarding, travelling and piloting aircraft.
