Deana Basar

dr.vet. med.

I was born in Zagreb, where I finished elementary school and veterinary medicine high school. After receiving my degree from the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine in 1992 I completed my internship in a small practice, although my first jobs were related to food and pet equipment. I was a part of Hill’s team for six years where I gained invaluable knowledge of nutrition and diseases of dogs and cats, which were of immense value when returning to small animal practice. Working at a small animal clinic, and using spare time dealing with horses and riding, I realized that the link between the completion of medical or surgical therapy and full recovery was missing.  In 2007 I gained initial knowledge of physiotherapy and rehabilitation work at the Amanda Sutton Psysiotherapy Animal Clinic, in Winchester, Great Britain. All of the further education and continuous training were in the same area.

In addition to acquiring professional knowledge, because of comprehensive and holistic approach, this work requires considerable self awareness to improve yourself. Veterinary medicine has given me the knowledge of anatomy, physiology, health and diseases which are  measurable figures (which can be measured). However, making the right diagnosis requires not only laboratory findings and recordings, but inner peace and harmony to be able to “see” and “hear” the animal, to feel her energy and recognize the imbalance. Especially demanding are the horses because working with them requires mindfulness, to be present in the moment, so you don’t lose that fine relationship that makes these treatments so different, special and successful and yet seemingly so simple. Every new patient is a new lesson, a new opportunity for growth in this life’s calling.

All this would not be possible without the immense support of my husband and peaceful oasis, house on the top of the Martin hill, winegrowing region 30 km from Zagreb, which is ruled by 3 dogs, 2 cats, a parrot and fish. Instead of a garden gnome, the garden is occupied by lovely mare and her companion dwarf goats. Besides working with animals and horseback riding, I enjoy motorcycling on weekends and discovering those hidden roads next to the deep sound and gleaming chrome of mine chopper  “Shadow”.
