Veterinary Nurse Awareness Month
Through the month of May we have been celebrating our fabulous veterinary nursing team. They have loads of jobs to do behind the scenes and help to ensure that the practice runs smoothly! At the moment they are very busy handling triage calls and maintaining high standards of hygiene throughout the premises. Their role also includes surgical nursing, looking after in-patients, carrying out nursing clinic checks, mentoring nursing students, helping the vets during consults and checking insurance claims. They are very busy people! The following photos are a snapshot of a day in the life of a veterinary nurse.
