Lourdes Lavilla-Atienza Ldo. Vet, MRCVS Veterinary Surgeon

I graduated from the University of Zaragoza in Spain in 2010 and have a particular interested in exotic, wild and zoo animals, alongside surgery. Once qualified, I volunteered in a wildlife rescue center in the Amazon Rainforest and in a well-renowned zoo in Peru before conducting an externship at Jersey Zoo. I have been an exotic vet in Spain, Dubai and France before I moved to the UK in 2015 where I have worked in general practice but I have had the luck to continue seeing zoo animals too. I have an article publication and currently working on another future publication. I am currently working towards the GpCert Exotic animal Practice Distance Learning Programme. I have a rescued one-eye cat from Dubai and used to have several pet frogs. I have recently joined Ashleigh Vets after a maternity leave.
