My name is Neus Morera, and I am an exotic pet vet in Barcelona. Along my life I’ve worked as an exotic mammals, birds, reptiles and fish vet, but also as a writer, translator, scientific secretary and teacher.

From this blog I would like to offer all the skills I’ve acquired to whoever might need them. Welcome to my page!

I got my degree in Veterinary Medicine in 2000 at the Autonomous University of Barcelona. In 2002 I started working at Exòtics  in Barcelona, and ever since then my career has been linked to exotic pets medicine.dscn7569 All along this time I have done externships in veterinary clinics and hospitals, in the United States and Australia, and also in Spain (Los Sauces,Madrid). I was also a visiting veterinarian at l’Oceanogràfic (València).


I have published numerous scientific papers,  and participated as a speaker in national and international conferences.  I have also reviewed scientific papers prior to their publication.

For 4 years I was the secretary of the Group of Exotic Animal Medicine and Surgery dscf0828(GMCAE), belonging to the Association of Small Animal Veterinarians (AVEPA). Since 2012 and due to my professional career I am an Accredited Exotic Pet Specialist by that association. I am a member of AEMVARAV and WAVMA.
I have participated as a teacher in several exotic pet medicine and surgery masters: AEVA (eds 2013, 2014, 2015), SERVET (2016), Universidade Lusófona (2017) i FORVETEX (2017).

I have translated scientific papers and I have written a chapter from the book ”Atlas de medicina de animales exóticos“.
