I graduated from Facultad de Ciencias Veterinarias, Universidad de Buenos Aires, Argentina in 2002. After two years working as  teaching assistant at the Pharmacology Chair and in small animal private practice in Argentina, I moved to Italy to complete a 3 year PhD program in Veterinary Medicine (University of Pisa) with a thesis in small animal regional anesthesia.
