Carl May RVN
Head Nurse and Practice Owner
I secured my first job in a veterinary practice at the age of 14 years old when after a two week work experience placement I was offered the opportunity to work as an animal care assistant after school, at weekends and during school holidays. This lead to me qualifying as a veterinary nurse from Rodbaston agricultural college in 1996.
I spent 2 years working at the PDSA in Stoke on Trent before travelling to New Zealand were I worked in a referral hospital in Auckland for a while then continued travelling around the country picking up work as I went including fruit picking, planting trees and working in a saw mill before finishing my travels in South East Asia.
On returning to the UK In 2000, I had various head nurse positions in practices in Lancaster, Biddulph and Congleton. During this time I also worked weekends at the local emergency out of hours clinic and eventually in 2014 accepted a position of head nurse there. In 2015 I came to Longton Vets4Pets as head nurse where I met Lindsey before the opportunity at Alsager came up.
Main interests are anything small animal but particularly enjoy wound management, radiography, anything surgical and very much enjoy nurse clinics which gives me the opportunity to get to know clients and to be involved in helping to keep their pets fit and healthy throughout their lives.
Hobbies - I'm a retired rugby player after 25 years but still very keen spectator. I enjoy fishing, walking our two dogs - Vinnie an English springer spaniel and Bodhi a Hungarian Vizsla, reading, cooking, camping and anything else that involves me being outdoors.
I look forward to welcoming you and your pets here at Alsager.
