Daniel Calvo Carrasco graduated from Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona in 2010 and his passion for Zoological Medicine has seen him visit a number of organisations and exotic hospitals across the world, including Peru, the United States, Japan and France. Daniel began his career at first opinion practices in Birmingham and Wiltshire, where he developed his skills as a vet in small animals, while still having the chance to look after small furries from a local pet shop where he was based.
In April 2013, Daniel started his European College Zoological Medicine Avian residency, while in May 2016 he gained his RCVS CertAVP(ZooMed) and completed his residency in Avian Medicine in September 2016. For the next two years, Daniel worked at Great Western Exotics before joining the Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust in 2018, where he combined conservation work with managing and caring for their living collection. He is now leading the recently open exotic service at Southfields veterinary Specialists.
Daniel enjoys all aspects of exotic, zoo and wildlife medicine, but has a keen interest in orthopaedics and soft tissue surgery in avian and exotic pets.
Daniel is a part of numerous organizations (WDA, AAV, EAAV, BVZS) and is a member of the education and examination committee of the ECZM.
