Sini Merikallio- TkT ELK

Sini has done veterinary substutes in  several municipalities, cities and clinics, from Ylitornio to Pyhtää and Rauma to Juva, and is now stepping on the crew of Pups' Pets as an irregular regular reinforcement.


Sinis particular interest are surgery, as well as geriatric Labrador retrievers. Sinis apple of an eye is Emmi-Labrador, who turns 13 years old. Cats, horses and even exotic animals are also close to Sinis heart.

Prior to the pandemic, Merikallio traveled extensively for further training abroad at various conferences (eg BSAVA, FECAVA, WSAVA, Leipzig and Swedish Veterinary Days), as well as visiting e.g. At Fitzpatrick Hospital in England, as well as UC Davis in the USA. Hopefully again we will soon be able to move more freely and learn, as well as seek influences from the world!
