Don Raúl Rosadio Alcántara, Veterinarian. “We always believed in research, and that it has to solve problems in the country such as those affecting the sheep, llama, alpaca, vicuña and guanaco, useful for the poorest peasants of the Andes. We are going to produce a vaccine to fight enterotoxemia, a disease that harms alpacas. Meanwhile, we are developing a control strategy. But we’re on our way to finding the one that attacks salmonellosis in guinea pigs. “
Raúl Héctor feels special attraction for the Andean animals, and his history of studies and specializations reveals that a vindication to his roots and ancestors may have been the motor of his passion.
“We have to be interested in animals of great social relevance, to revalue the domestic species with high protein value that the ancient Peruvians took care of, because we also studied different species of animals such as bees, monogastric animals, such as cats, dogs and pigs, also ruminants and fishes. We have to understand each one to take care of their illnesses “.
