What is your favourite animal and why?
Probably Lions. I’ve always loved big cats and planned to use my veterinary degree to go and work with them. I quickly found out that the cats I meet every day have more than enough sass to keep me entertained so small animal practice it was. 

What pets do you have and what are their names?
Strangely, I don’t have any. My excuse is I don’t want to expose any poor, unsuspecting pets to my crazy 2 year old daughter. I’m pretty sure it won’t stay that way for long though.

 What is the best pet name you have come across?
It’s so difficult to choose. The one cat that does jump out at me though is a cat called Pocket. She was named that because she was found as a tiny kitten and spent the first few weeks of her life in a Vet Nurse’s tunic pocket.

What is your favourite famous animal?
Honestly it has to be a famous pair… Timon and Pumbaa from the Lion King. Mainly because they’re off the charts crazy and I imagine that’s how I would be if I were an animal.

What is the best part about working at Vets4Pets?
Am I allowed to say the uniform? It’s so comfortable! I suppose working with a team of people that are just as nuts as me also helps…

What is your favourite animal and why? Dogs due to their fantastic personalities. No matter what sort of day you have had they always make you laugh. What pets do you have and what are their names? A dog called Finley. What is the best pet name you have come across? I like the human names like Dave and Stuart. What is your favourite famous animal? Jacob Black, the werewolf from Twilight. What is the best part about working at Vets4Pets? After working 18 years in the veterinary business, its nice to work somewhere that you are valued. I have a fantastic team who pride themselves on working to a very high standard. I also get to bring my dog to work, so what else could I ask for?

What is your favourite animal and why? Unicorns, they make me feel youthful and magical! Seriously though, dogs. They are the heart of the family. What pets do you have and what are their names? Ebony and Seren, two older (although don't tell them that) cross breed terrier girls. What is the best pet name you have come across? Mr Tiddlesworth, a white stray kitty with a blocked bladder. We rejoiced when he had a 'tiddle' and the name stuck. What is your favourite famous animal? Crusoe the celebrity dachshund. What is the best part about working at Vets4Pets? I enjoy the variety of roles I get to take as an RVN. I feel we maintain a high standard here at Vets4Pets Hemsworth.

I have 1 dog called Angel (I don't think that name suits her) and 2 cats called Misty and Magic who were both rescued. What is the best pet name you have come across? Burrito the rabbit What is your favourite famous animal? Marley from Marley and me What is the best part about working at Vets4Pets?
