Vanessa is a qualified vet nurse having completed her certificate in November 2016.

Her desire to become a vet nurse stemmed from her interest in animals, particularly exotics. She has always had animals around her, including ferrets.

She enjoys the challenge vet nursing brings where every day is different and there is always something more to learn.

She is particularly interested in pathology and medical cases, and enjoying gaining more experiencing assisting in surgery. She is also working towards her microchipping certificate.

Vanessa grew up surrounded by animals, including birds, dogs, rabbits, ferrets and fish. She currently owns a 5yo ferret named Muttley.

Vanessa’s tip for pet owners:

“Always do your research before buying a pet, so you are prepared to look after them to the best of your abilities.”
