Dr. Averil Almeida has had a love for animals since she was very young. In school she discovered a passion and an aptitude for Biology so becoming a veterinary doctor was the next logical step.
Averil honed her passion for veterinary medicine by volunteering at a small animal clinic during weekends and vacations in high school and university. She graduated with a veterinary degree from the University of Nairobi. She worked for a year in Kenya with companion animals, exotics and ostriches too.
