Read Ms Claire Croft bio

I'm Claire one of the vet nurses here. I started with the practice as a student nurse almost 7 years ago and qualified just over 4 years ago. I am also an SQP which allows me to advise and prescribe certain medications to my patients.
I am working towards a certificate in nutrition so I am able to run clinics surrounding all things food related, whether you have a fussy pet, one with allergies or a pet with specific dietary requirements or are simply struggling with their weight. I am also a clinical coach. 
I love my job and especially favour scrubbing in to assist the vets with complex surgical procedures and stitching up the patients.

I have a nursing certificate in animal nutrition
