In recent years, the number of these species that we have in our homes (reptiles, birds, small mammals, rodents, etc.) has grown a lot and it is very important to have specialized personnel in a reference center like ours. in order to be able to perform preventive and curative medicine (it is very important, as it is completely different from that of cats and dogs, and most of the pathologies that currently suffer from this type of pet can be avoided). at the Costa Brava Veterinary Hospital we wanted to have the services of Xavier Valls, who specialized in exotics and has been exclusively dedicated to them for over 25 years. He founded and co-directed the prestigious Exotic Veterinary Clinic until its dissolution in 2021 to begin a new stage. He is a benchmark in the veterinary sector for his high knowledge, experience, outreach and contribution in various fields.
