I’m Dr. Pilar! I was raised on a farm in Patagonia, Chile, and have always been in contact with animals. Growing up in this environment allowed me to develop a passion for science, environmentalism, medicine and animal welfare.
I began my studies at the “Universidad Austral de Chile” (Southern University of Chile) in 2000, and hold a Bachelor of Veterinary Medicine and Biology as well as a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree.
After coming to Canada, I completed all requirements to obtain my license to practice in North America, so you could say I’ve become a doctor twice in my lifetime!
I’m fluent in Spanish and happy to discuss pet care with owners in their native language.
