Maria-Rosa Lopez Colom

BVetMed MRCVS, ECC Veterinary Surgeon

Rosa is a Spanish national, graduated at the EAEVE approved Autonomous University of Barcelona and has been with Vets Now since January 2016, after completing an intensive 10-week Cutting Edge training program. Previously, she carried out a Small Animal internship in Barcelona where she was in charge of taking care of the hospitalised patients, primary care consults and out-of-hour emergency services. Parallel to her internship she also collaborated with a local dog shelter for dangerous breeds. She has carried out numerous exotic animal externships within the UK and Spain, and Surgery postgraduate courses.

Rosa’s veterinary passion developed from her early contact with wildlife fauna and nature, which in turn has significantly marked her hobbies and interests. Keeping active and in shape is also within her priorities: She was part of her school’s grass hockey team, indoor football team at university, and currently in her free time she likes to swim or go on hikes.
