BVetMed MRCVS CertVetAc(IVAS)
In 2005 I graduated as a vet from Cordoba University (Spain) and after working in different practices within Spain and Germany, I relocated to the UK to continue with my post-graduate studies.
In 2013 I suffered a bad sport injury. After trying different treatments with little improvement, a friend recommended me acupuncture. After just 1 treatment there was a 75% improvement. It was then when my interest for acupuncture began, realising that conventional treatments are not always enough to deal with all the injuries and illnesses.
Wanting to learn more about alternative treatments in order to help animals, especially with chronic or recurrent illnesses, I started studying the Traditional Chinese Medicine. After training with dogs and horses for more than a year, I was certified in Veterinary Acupuncture by the hand of the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society (IVAS). I complemented the acupuncture treatments with Low-level Laser Therapy (LLLT), delivering great results when combined.
Since then I have been practising acupuncture in dogs and horses whilst working as a vet in a busy equine practice. Integravet was then launched to dedicate fully in what I believe in and enable more animals to benefit from complementary treatments to their usual vet.
I am a fully qualified Veterinary Surgeon. I am a member of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) and a member of the Association of British Veterinary Acupuncturists (ABVA). I am also the Regional Veterinary Surgeon in North Midlands of the Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA).
Currently I am training towards the Certificate in Veterinary Chiropractic by the hand of International Academy of Veterinary Chiropractic (IAVC). I am really looking forward to start offering it from September 2018 onwards.
