Veterinary Nursing

1st May 2019


We are incredibly proud of our Veterinary Nurses!

In any given day a veterinary nurse may find themselves taking x-rays, medicating patients, doing consults, maintaining equipment, monitoring anaesthetics, dressing wounds, answering phones, and the list goes on!

Our surgery couldn't function without our nurses! From puppy parties to critical assistance in preparing theatre and instruments, preparing wound sites and maintaining anaesthetic, our RVNs are dedicated to providing the best care for their patients.

May is Veterinary Nursing Awareness Month and this is a chance for us to interact with our clients and the public, so don’t be shy, ask about what your RVNs do, and their special interests! You may find they can help you with a pet problem you have been having. Also, RVNs usually have pets themselves, and love to talk about them just as you do!

Veterinary Nurses undertake a vast amount of tasks including:

  • Anaesthetist
  • Surgical assistant
  • Fracture Nurse
  • Radiographer
  • Physiotherapist
  • Hydro therapist
  • Dietician
  • Phlebotomist
  • Paramedic
  • Pharmacist

...and so much more!

All animals vaccinated annually by us are Total Care members. This means that they are entitled to selected FREE nurse consultations, such as; Senior Wellness Clinics, nail clipping, stitch removal, feeding and worming advice (and administering), weight clinics, youth clinics and healthcare advice.
