Inês graduated in 2017, in Portugal. Her first interest was in parasitology and wildlife, both the subjects of her Master Degree. She started working in small animal practice shortly after graduation and continued to do so after moving to the UK in 2018. In 2019 she completed an acupuncture course and has been doing some work in this field too, mainly treating chronic pain. Inês strongly believes in bonding with her patients and she greatly values the relationship between owner and vet as an important part of any treatment. In her spare time she enjoys hiking, gardening, learning new things no matter how big or small and spending time with her family and her four rescues. Inês joined FirstVet in March 2021.
