Veterinary Care Assistant
I have worked as a receptionist/veterinary care assistant at Lytham Vets4Pets since January 2014. It's one of the best jobs I have had as I get to meet lots of lovely pets and their owners.
I have a Rottweiler called Roxy and a Rottweiler x German Shepherd called Jazz. They are both 7 years old. I also have 2 black cats called Abraham and Lincoln. I got them from Easterleigh Animal Sanctuary as kittens because nobody wanted them as they were black. All dogs and cats get on brilliantly together.
I get up at 5.am to take the dogs for a good long walk (sometimes a run if I’m feeling energetic!) before I come to work. On my days off I take the dogs further as I have some nice country walks where I live. If the cows or sheep are in the field our walk will take a long time as Roxy is obsessed with them, and will sit at the gate to their field until they come to say hello. And they always do eventually!
I have a lovely grandson who I try and see as much as I can, and enjoy going out with friends. I have friends who have horses that I try and see as much as I can, as I used to work in various horse competition yards and have had many horses myself (and donkeys!).
Working here at Lytham is like having an extended family. I love coming to work, and often joke that if I didn't have the animals at home I would probably live here!
