Having always been passionate about animals, I decided at a very young age that I would dedicate my life to caring for them. I have therefore made it my mission. I have lived with dogs, cats and ferrets for years. Today, my dog Sydney (a flat-coated retriever) and my cat May are part of my family. I regularly spend time in the countryside and often go on long treks through the mountains. I love cooking, reading, exercising, doing yoga and listening to music.
I graduated in 2006 from the University of Veterinary Medicine in Bologna.
I believe that health is not just the absence of disease, but complete physical, mental and social well-being. My approach to veterinary medicine involves two fundamental aspects: prevention and natural treatments for our pets.
After my studies, I attended many update courses in internal medicine, laboratory, diagnostic imaging (radiography and ultrasound), dermatology, anaesthesia, surgery and emergency medicine.
My passion for this job has led me to specialise in the two fields of veterinary medicine that I love most, namely nutrition and behavioural medicine.
Through food supplements and subject-specific nutrition, my goal is to achieve optimal health, both in the healthy animal and in the animal suffering from disease. The end result is what we in human medicine call ‘well-aging’.
On a behavioural level, the quality of life of the animal and also that of its owners can improve with the right educational skills. I studied behavioural medicine according to the cognitive method, taken directly from the studies of human psychology, and I know and am fascinated by every aspect of our pets’ minds. It is very important to take care of your relationship with your pet day by day, so that you can live together happily and in harmony. Helping owners on this path is my vocation.
