Veterinarians, ethologists, anthrozoologists and educators

 Etholink team

– ABOUT OUR HISTORY –

Etholink was born in 2018 to be able to offer you the veterinary ethology service and help you strengthen the link with your animal; dog, cat or horse. This is where the name Etholink comes from: ethos, the beginning of the term ethology in English, and link, from the term link in English. A perfect combination that shows our way of working and understanding the world of animal behavior.

 – ABOUT OUR TEAM –

Etholink does not need to contact other professionals. We are a multidisciplinary team formed in different specialties to be able to give you a comprehensive response to any behavior problem that your dog, cat or horse may present as individuals. And, also, in any improvement that you want to generate in your institution or population as a veterinarian, animal protector or city council.

    ETHOLINK CO-FOUNDER AND VETERINARY ETHOLOGIST

    BCN Collegiate nº 5149

    To know more

    I am a veterinarian specialized in clinical ethology. I have also completed my clinical training with practice, which has allowed me to become a dog educator. After spending several years combining clinical practice with ethology, I decided to focus exclusively on the second. This was a purely vocational decision.

    Helping to improve coexistence between all animal species is my job and my passion. For this reason I decided to study veterinary medicine and then specialize in ethology. Currently, I continue to train day by day to be aware of all the advances in veterinary ethology and offer the best possible service.
