Student Veterinary Nurse
Hi I'm Claire and I'm a mature Student Veterinary Nurse and qualified C-SQP (Animal Medicines Advisor for Companion Animals) working at Preston Vets4Pets.
I am an avid animal lover and strongly believe that all animals deserve to be treated with respect and receive the best possible care to suit their needs and requirement and above all, protection from infectious diseases and parasites. It is because of these beliefs and my love of all animals that I decided to make a difference and embark on a career that would not only fulfil me but best of all, a career that would make a difference to all pets that I encounter.
I have always had pets - from small furries to arachnids to dogs and cats and I don't think there is an animal in this world that would not interest me, except maybe jellyfish and wasps! One of the animals that I find amazing are crocodiles! I think it's amazing that there is such a creature that hasn't had to change much since the Jurassic ages as it is perfect just the way that it is!!
I have worked with many charities over the years, including weekend work in a cattery and most recently I volunteer to take the donations from clients and customers to animal rescue centres.
In my spare time I'm a bit of a geek and love building and painting Warhammer 40k models! I also enjoy gaming and refurbishing old furniture. I love gardening - particularly creating spaces with flowers and plants that attract all kinds of wildlife - especially bees and butterflies!! I also like to enjoy the great outdoors - hiking amongst beautiful scenery is my all time favourite way to spend a beautiful day and I also like to bike off-road in the same kind of environment. I am obsessed with Lush baths and Yankee candles! and I love singing too!
