Calle Miguel Servet, 177, 50013 Zaragoza, Spain

Art and small animal diseases

I have used my love of the arts to inspire my own work as a veterinary surgeon and now, I use the arts as a tool for educating the next generation of vets. “Durante toda mi vida, he hecho con la veterinaria arte y ahora puedo hacer con el arte veterinaria.” (Apologies, but it has to be written in my own language).

I graduated from the Veterinary Faculty of Zaragoza, Spain in 1981 and I got my PhD degree (cum laude) in 1996. I am Diplomate of the European College of Small Ruminants Health Management since 2013.

As a professional related to sheep industry, I have been farmer apprentice, sheep farmer, hired veterinarian, free veterinarian, group director of veterinarians of small ruminants (300,000 sheep) and veterinary services entrepreneur.

As a lecturer, I spent 14 years as a part time University teacher of external practices with small ruminants and, finally in 2002, I moved from the private company to teach at the university, where I hold the position of full professor until now.

I have participated as the main author in 16 technical and one cultural books, with translations into French, Portuguese, Turkish and English.

I have participated in 60 publications in peer reviewed journals (within the impact factor system) and more than 100 publications in other national and international journals, furthermore I have more than 100 presentations in national and international scientific meetings.

I have also collaborated in newspapers, radio and TV with activities related to small ruminants.
I am a member of the Board of Trustees of the "Casa de Ganaderos de Zaragoza", a Sheep Farmers Foundation with 800 years of history, and member of the Club of Hosts of the Zaragoza City Council.

I am not a specialist in anything, but I get along with the sheep.
