By Shannon Sullivan

Everyone at Amazon CARES is happy to welcome two new doctors to our team! Join us in welcoming Dr. Julio Vargas and Dr. Reyna Isabel Castilla to our hardworking team of veterinary professionals in Iquitos, Peru.

Dr. Julio Vargas has been working in veterinary medicine since 2007 and graduated from the National University Pedro Ruiz Gallo-Lambayeque. He has experience treating domestic animals, including companion animals and farm animals, as well as exotic animals. Dr. Vargas has a great deal of experience with dermatology, reproduction, pathology and immunology, and production animal management. Even though he has many skills and areas of expertise, he particularly enjoys surgery. In his free time, Dr. Vargas enjoys spending time with animals and swimming.

Dr. Reyna Isabel Castilla graduated from the National University of San Cristobal Guamanga – Ayacucho in 2011. Her research thesis in veterinary school focused on gastrointestinal parasites in primates kept in captivity. How interesting! Dr. Castilla has been working in veterinary medicine since 2008, focusing on reproduction, wildlife management, and production animal management.
