Today we meet Toni head of the slow vet philosophy in El Port Veterinarios.

Making the right choice of a vet to care for and keep tabs on the health of your pet is not always well thought out, and we often end up jumping from one to another, or even going to the nearest one only when we need to.  However having confidence in the vet not only translates into peace of mind for us -your human family-, but it is also good insurance for the long-term health of our pet.


Some time ago we told you about a new concept of veterinary medicine called “slow vet” which is applied in the well-known veterinary clinic El Port Veterinarios in Altea and for those of you who don’t know it well we recommend for you to read about it in our website (read here) as today we are going to introduce you to the head of all this concept at his clinic and who performs all of this good work namely Toni Candela.





Toni became a veterinarian by vocation and the devotion and love he feels for animals led him to open his own veterinary clinic but this is not just any clinic, the success of El Port lies in its motto which is that animals come always first. El Port Veterinarios is based on a veterinary concept that differs from the others in that here what matters are the animals, not money or anything else as the first task here is to take care of the animal no matter what happens or no matter what the situation is.




We could say that it is a meeting point for animal lovers as bringing furry patients to this clinic is almost a party, the pets are treated with so much love and affection that they really love to come! It is also a clinic that has a  soul of a lady as all the staff are women as Toni always saw in them more sensitivity and empathy when it comes to treating the furry ones, and Toni is always looking for excellence in the treatment of your beloved pet.





When Toni set up his clinic he did it from scratch and now we can say that it has been a real success as he is friendly and close to his customers and his concern and attention for the animals is something you notice from the beginning and this gives you total security and confidence that you feel good to leave your pet there.


The treatment is very personal at all times and it is very worth noting that the clinic has all kinds of veterinary specialties because that is what Toni wants and even though he is a perfectionist and it is he who decides what the animal needs after proper observation you are always referred to the appropriate specialist but without having to leave El Port, as it has doctors specializing in each of a range of specialties so they can all come to El Port for treatment.






At El Port they move away from the way franchises work, here at El Port the treatment is personalized, attending to each pet equally, in fact, Toni always says that he treats them as if they were his own and will recommend exactly what he would do for his own little ones.


Therefore at Spain Life we highly recommend this veterinary clinic as I have personally taken my pet here and the attention to detail and the care for the animal is second to none where others see how much the bill is first it is the opposite here and so if you want close treatment from all the staff, and that they are shown true love then El port with their slow vet philosophy is the one for you.
