Before starting to pursue a career in Medicine, I've always had a passion for animal care. Being able to spend time with animals, whether it's dogs, horses, cats, guinea pigs, rabbits, or even fishes and reptiles, is always a pleasure for me. I have experience in training and taking care of all types of dogs, and it has been a blessing to be able to offer a good and genuine service to people who love their dogs as much as I love mine.
