Registered Veterinary Nurse
My name is Sam and I qualified in 2004 with a BSc (Hons) Degree in Veterinary Nursing. I have since worked in small animal first opinion practices in Lancashire and West Yorkshire as an RVN, C-SQP and Practice Manager.
My favourite aspect of being a Veterinary Nurse is inpatient care, ensuring patients are warm, clean and comfortable, giving them their medication and managing their intravenous fluids. Oh, and lots of TLC! I treat every pet as if they are my own so you can rest assured that whilst you sleep your family members are in safe hands.
When I am not at work, my time is mainly spent caring for and running around after my own 4 pets. Dainty, my Irish Sports Horse loves to be ridden and her absolute favourite thing is travelling to different places and jumping. Beanie is my 12year old Miniature Yorkshire Terrier who has bundles of energy and is constantly on the go. His favourite thing in the world is agility. Ted is my ginger DSH cat who absolutely adores cuddles and catnip. He spends most of his time sat on the shed, upstairs in bed or sprawled in front of the TV!
Finally,I have a very friendly Russian Dwarf hamster called Pablo who was a Support Adoption for Pets hamster who couldn’t be rehomed due to needing regular teeth trimming. As this is something I can manage myself I adopted him and he has since settled in well.
