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.

He 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.

Daniel also started working in an out of hours service, where he learned about emergency and critical care medicine, which he has since applied to exotic pets.

He then completed an exotic animal medicine and zoological medicine internship at a Wiltshire referral centre, followed by two years of small animal and exotic practice in the UK.

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, he 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.
