Tamara Vela Gil
Veterinary Surgeon with interest in exotics
Tammy graduated from Zaragoza Veterinary College in 2000. She started working in a small animal veterinary practice and a zoological park as veterinary assistant that year showing early interest for exotic medicine from the very beginning. She then moved to Alicante (Spain) and has been working ever since as a small animal and exotic veterinary surgeon in different parts of Valencia and Alicante, having always a strong bias to Avian and small mammal medicine and surgery. Between 2008 and 2012, Tammy was requested to give several lectures in Italy and Spain about Bird and small mammal emergency medicine, husbandry, anaesthesia and surgery. In 2013, she moved to the UK and has been working in small animal practices since then. She joined our practice in April 2014. When she is not at work, Tammy likes socialising, going to the gym and shopping, and goes to Spain every time she can to visit family and friends. At the moment Tammy is studying a Postgraduate diploma from Barcelona University in Small animal surgery and Anaesthesia. She´s got four bunnies, Leelah, Gru, Cookie Monster and Toffee: all rescued.
