My name is Vikky and I have been a qualified veterinary nurse since 2004. Animal welfare is my passion, which is why I enjoy working for Vets4Pets. I believe the most important role of my job is to educate our clients on how to care for their pets. Through running nurse clinics, Vets4Pets enable their clients to receive up to date knowledge of all aspects of health care - all free of charge. I came to Birstall after being a locum for other Vets4Pets all over Yorkshire for the past 3 years. A part-time position became available, so I jumped at the opportunity after being very impressed by the level of compassion for animals and client care here.
I have just begun a COAPE (Canine Psychology Course) and I hope to start their 3 year diploma in Behaviour and Training once this is completed. I live with my 4 cats (2 were strays and one I hand reared from being 1 week old after him, his brother and 2 sisters were abandoned); my 2 crossbreed dogs who were both rescued (one from the streets of Romania after my last rescue dog died at the age of 17); and a very lovely hamster who has a problem with his eyes, but we manage this by applying eye drops regularly! I also home-board dogs, cats and small furries and walk other peoples dogs, so I never have any free time and my house is always full of animals but I love it!
