Meet Juan Luis Abad Colom

Veterinary Surgeon

Juan graduated from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB), Catalonia, Spain in June 2018.

Juan is interested in Exotic Animal Medicine, and for a few years, he’s been exclusively seeing exotic patients. Among all the fields in the Exotic Animal Medicine, he is especially interested in avian medicine.

Although Juan is an exotic vet, he’s always had dogs as pets at home, and he’s always loved them! At present, he has two adorable shelter dogs (in Spain) who are both turning 13 this year.

Juan really enjoys listening to music, and from time to time playing various instruments. He particularly likes many Spanish groups however, his favourite bands are actually all from the UK!
