Lleu joined the Weare Animal Hospital team in February of 2021, having previously been a client at the counterpart Hopkinton Animal Hospital. After beginning his career in veterinary medicine at a general canine and feline practice, Lleu decided to pursue the field of exotic veterinary care, and brings with him three years of experience in preventive medicine and anesthetic monitoring.
Lleu is currently enrolled in Ashworth College’s Veterinary Technology Program, and upon completion of his Associate’s Degree, will go on to pass the VTNE in order to become a Certified Veterinary Technician. Afterwards, he plans to pursue a falconry permit and wildlife rehabilitation license.
Lleu has always wanted to work in veterinary medicine, which most find unsurprising as he grew up among show dogs, police K9s, and many species of pocket pets. He is passionate about animal husbandry and enrichment, dog sports, and pet training – to the extent that his guinea pig, Quito, can perform several tricks! In his free time, Lleu enjoys photography, art, music, writing, reading, longboarding, martial arts, camping, and hiking. He also frequently pupsits his friend’s wooly-coated husky, Nanook, and loves bringing her along during his countless explorations of New England.
