Carl Buendia

Veterinary Nurse

Veterinary nurse Carl started his career with human patients in the Philippines, before relocating to the UAE where he had an opportunity to transfer his skills into animal nursing.

Carl joined GVC in 2018 with 4 years of animal nursing experience behind him, and is our resident arachnophile.  He’s doing his best to share his love of tarantulas with the rest of the team, but so far we’re not convinced!

Carl grew up surrounded by dogs and chickens, and has an encyclopaedic knowledge of wildlife documentaries, as well as a pet tarantula!
