About Us


Veterinary Centre “Greta” was founded in March in 1997. In that time in Donetsk and in Ukraine in general there was no such thing as veterinary centres/hospitals, which were equipped with the correct and necessary diagnostic equipment. This problem was the reason for the creation of Donetsk Diagnostic Centre for animals. The Centre received its name in honour of the Airedale Terrier Greta. The animal became very ill and no veterinary clinic in our region could diagnose and clarify the nature of her illness. The dog (Greta) sadly died, and in her memory was established first in Ukraine- Diagnostic Centre for small animals, aiming to diagnose illnesses precisely and quickly.

The Centre originally was equipped with the necessary diagnostic equipment: ultra sound scanner, x-ray diagnostic, fiber optic fiberscopes and other equipment. It was the first veterinary clinic and institution in our country with a set of diagnostical equipment. A year later the Centre had expanded and apart from diagnosing they also seized a number of therapeutic areas. In addition apart from the Centre having qualified veterinary specialists working it attracted highly specialized doctors – diagnosticians and consultants.

From that moment the Centre started working full 24 hours, and it became a fully fledged veterinary clinic with a wide range of veterinary services such as diagnostic, therapeutic, and urgent emergencies which includes“the veterinary ambulance”. In 2002 there became an opportunity to treat animals in the veterinary hospital, thankfully to the singular day-and-night clinic building that works 24hours per day with hard working staff.

Even after eight years that have passed the day-and-night Veterinary Centre “Greta” is the best in Ukraine for its comfort for not only its patients but for their owners too. Since 1999 our Centre is the best provider of Veterinary help in Ukraine. This is supported by the fact that many of our highly qualified specialists who participate in yearly international conferences.

It is essential to point out some features of work that the Veterinary Centre “Greta” does. From the moment the organization of the Centre, we started to focus in to two main directions: Firstly – Veterinary, Secondly- Charity work to protect animals. The last direction includes free data base of lost and stray animals, help support low-income owners, and working together with shelters for homeless animals. More information can be found in the “Charity” section.

Another little but important feature of work that Greta wants to pay attention to – is that in our clinic it is impossible to euthanize any animal under an owners request. Euthanasia is done only for medical reasons, that is, when the state of the ill animal is so hard and complicated that there is no point in making it suffer on its struggle fighting for its life. The Centre also doesn’t perform docking ears and tails of dogs from humane consideration. In 2003 Veterinary Centre “Greta” was the first in Ukraine to carry out micro-chipping of animals (a method used for identificating animals, which is recognized in all developed countries). In 2009 the Centre carried out and update of its diagnostic facilities, particularly in the field of ultrasound and X-ray diagnosis laboratory tests. Ultrasound examinations are now performed by the scanner premium-class and include not only convectional sonographic research, but also in colour Doppler mode, as an important addition to the standard diagnostic procedure. X-ray diagnosis complex with a double receiver which has a digital with processing of X-ray images, and digital X-ray printer providing quality printing of images on x-ray film. Greta carried out a renewal of laboratory equipment, in particular, we gained a new biochemical blood analyzer software.
