Dr. Jesus I. Gil Chinchilla

Dr.Jesus Graduated in veterinary medicine from the University of Murcia in 2012. Following graduation he went on to obtain his Master’s in Veterinary Research Science from the Complutense University of Madrid in 2013.

In 2014-2015 he completed a general internship (mainly in anesthesia, surgery, internal medicine and hospitalization and critical care) at the Veterinary Hospital of the Complutense University of Madrid. Two years later, from 2016-2017, he undertook another specialty internship in cell therapy, intensive care, at the Veterinary Hospital of the University of Murcia.

Dr.Jesus is currently completing his PhD in advanced therapy for small animals (dogs and cats) and big animals (horses) through the use of stem cells for the treatment of different pathologies where conventional treatment has failed.

With a passion for all animals, Dr.Jesus is working to improve the quality of life of all animals through the search for new therapeutic strategies, based on the use of stem cells, for the treatment of different diseases where conventional treatment is ineffective, with the hope of never being too late again.

He joined the Canadian Veterinary Hospital Team in January 2018, and brings a wealth of knowledge in internal medicine and patient care to our team.

From a young age, Dr.Jesus  always fed the abandoned and stray dogs around his house. He once came across a German Shepherd who was tied to a tree on a very short leash and the dog immediately tried to bite him. However, young Dr. Jesus started bringing food & water to the dog every day after school to win his trust. As the days passed, he gained the confidence of this dog and realized he had a big wound on his leg. He then understood that he had been mistreated. You could say he was his first patient, and he did his best to heal his wounds. Unfortunately, by the time he managed to convince his parents to adopt him and went looking for him … he was gone. He still remembers the look on this dog and the feeling that he could have done so much more.

Later on he adopted Luna and rescued Toby, two loving street dogs during a walk with his mother. Several years later, Luna and Toby had 3 puppies (Balto, Shasa and Lupi). 

During his free time, he loves listening to music and is a professional salsa and bachata  dancer. He enjoys travelling and learning about different cultures as well as playing basketball.
