About Pet Line Clinic
We had the chance to meet the Director of Petline Veterinary Clinic and Pet Hotel owner, Niyazi Çelebi. He explains to us a little bit about what they do, and why. Loving pets is rewarding and time consuming, it holds full time responsibilities, but as all caring pet owners know; it’s well worth it!
Dr. Niyazi explains how their caring services at Petline carve and fill a huge void in the contribution to the growing population of expats moving here with their pets from all over the globe, or those taking on a pet on the island.
Niyazi Çelebi studied and graduated from the University of Ankara with honours in Specialist Veterinary Surgeon. He then extended his studies with a two year term studying animal feeding, dietary and food nutrition. Dr. Niyazi has an accomplished veneer and expertise, which fortunately, extends to his pets and his charity work in the animal kingdom covering the whole of North Cyprus.
A very pleasant Veterinary Surgeon greets us, dressed in a smart white medical overcoat, and gives us a smile warm enough to making us feel very welcome. We ask, over a beverage, for the story and a little bit about how he began, what they do and services available. He begins: “I started this company with the objective to aid animals. I knew the marketplace lacked the professionalism and services vital to this industry. With my passion for animals and urge to fill the void, I launched Petline in 2011.”
“I started by opening up as a small shop some 200 metres from where we are today. The demand was apparent as we expanded fast and moved to our current facilities. The idea blossomed, as did our team, so to include a Pet Hotel and Pet Transfer Services became an immediate hit. The pet hotel was in high demand and we conveniently placed it a few minutes drive from Ercan airport. Today it plays a vital role to customers going on holiday and those wanting to bring a pet safely to and from Cyprus.” He continues: “Transfers are mainly from Europe, USA, Russia, Iran and of course Scandinavia, but we work worldwide. Approximately 70% of my customers are foreign based.”
Petline Clinic has a working relationship with the animal charity KAR (Kyrenia Animal Rescue). He tells us: “We take on many street dogs and cats that are brought in by charities, make the necessary treatments and keep them here until full recovery, then we send them back to the charity that will find them a home. We have a significant quantity of dogs on our streets, but at least we and a few more pet clinics contribute by neutering the animals to stop them from spreading and assist with the safety and comfort. It is mostly dogs and cats we take care of here but sometimes we take care of farm animals such as sheep. We also get the odd house rabbit, pigeon, chameleon and sometimes a parrot or two.
Bathing, clipping, gland extraction, nail trimming, etc. Everything for the beauty and health of your pet.
