We’re delighted to announce Carlos Millan has joined us as our new anaesthesia resident. Carlos graduated with a veterinary medicine degree in 2018 in Valencia and is a member of the European College of Veterinary Anaesthesia and Analgesia (ECVAA).
Speaking about his new role Carlos said: “My primary role involves the care of the patients from the pre-anaesthesia until recovery, for patients who have undergone surgery or diagnostic tests. I am also looking forward to gaining experience and increasing my knowledge in the field of anaesthesia through weekly teaching sessions and case discussions with my supervisors.”
One of his most memorable cases to date came when he anaesthetised an Eivissa wall lizard which had escaped from its terrarium and was injured by a cat.
Carlos added: “The diversity of patients is the best thing about being an anaesthetist, as we could anesthetise animals ranging from a 900kg Clydesdale horse or a 300kg cow to a 50kg dog, a 3kg cat, or even small exotic animals like this lizard that was around 15 grams.
“This gives us the chance to have a wide knowledge base across different species and share the different anaesthetic considerations between by learning from each of these cases.”
Outside of work, Carlos enjoys spending time with his many pets and is learning to play the piano, as well as a clarinet.
