Born in Valladolid, Alvaro studied at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid and graduated as a vet in 2013.
Having already spent time with dairy and pig vets in Spain, he then moved to the UK to pursue his interest in working with farm animals. He joined the Rutland Vets team in March 2014 as a part-time TB tester also working with another XLVets practice.
In January of 2015, Alvaro took up a full time role at Rutland Vets. He now also carries out clinical work on farms, in addition to TB testing.
Alvaro is interested in all aspects of cattle veterinary work, particularly medicine and nutrition.
Alvaro used to play lots of football, rugby and tennis, but now just plays a bit of football!  He also enjoys travel: exploring new places and meeting people from other cultures.
