David grew up on a farm in southern Colombia, where animals were a part of life from day one. The pivotal moment for him, though, came when he encountered a dog with an injured tail. Since there was no veterinary service in David’s hometown at the time, he took the dog to the Red Cross, where he helped the employees there nurse the creature back to full health. Ever since that day, David knew that the veterinary field was his true calling.
