Registered Veterinary Nurse
Hi, my name is Chelsea Hopkinson and I am student veterinary nurse at Rotherham Vets4Pets. I am due to complete my degree level training soon to become a registered veterinary nurse, and then continue my learning to study an honours degree course at Askham Bryan College. I have gained previous experience in a busy 24 hour hospital and love all aspects of nursing care, particularly helping animals post operatively and in recovery.
What is your favourite animal and why?
My favourite animal is dogs, all breeds and sizes. I love how trustworthy they are and how loyal and affectionate they can be.
What pets do you have and what are their names?
I have 2 cats and 1 dog all rescued from a local charity.
I have an 11 month old Labrador called Vinnie who is very mischievous and playful. He loves rolling in mud and swimming in the lake afterwards, typical Labrador!

I love very human names for animals, my favourite is Percy.

Pippin from Come Outside, I think that’s where my love of animals stems from as a child.
