Careers as a Veterinary Nurse
Veterinary Nurses work alongside Veterinary Surgeons to provide a high standard of medical and nursing care to all patients. The job involves hard work, commitment and a love of animals but is a challenging and rewarding career.
Typical duties include holding animals for examination by a Veterinary Surgeon, collecting samples such as blood and urine for diagnostic examination, and nursing patients who are hospitalised with illness or after surgery. The job provides a superb opportunity for people wishing to work closely with pets and their owners.
We are an official Training Practice which enables us to train students wishing to gain the Veterinary Nurse Qualification. Emma Petts BVetMed MRCVS/ A1 is our assessor and is responsible for the support and training of Veterinary Nurse Students.
