Find out more about our nurse led clinics

Veterinary nurses are essential members of the veterinary team and play a key role in caring for pets and supporting pet owners.

They have a jam-packed job, with a variety of important duties to complete every day. Here are just some of the ways our veterinary nurses help look after your pets…

Nurse appointments and clinics

Our veterinary nurses work directly with pet owners in the appointments and clinics they run within the practice.

These appointments can cover anything from nutrition and fitness advice, grooming techniques, to pet socialisation classes. In these appointments or clinics you can build brilliant relationships with your veterinary nurse and other pet owners, as you learn about all the important aspects of pet ownership.

Our veterinary nurses are experienced and passionate about animal welfare, and these appointments and clinics are a brilliant way to learn the best methods for caring for your pet.

Veterinary Nurse Qualifications

All of our qualified veterinary nurses have a level 3 diploma or degree and are registered with the RCVS (Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons).

Medical care

Should you ever bring your pet into the practice for a consultation or operation, our veterinary nurses will be there every step of the way.

If your pet is being admitted for surgery, your veterinary nurse will ensure your pet is as calm and comfortable as possible and walk you through the procedure.

They will help the vet with anything from placing IV catheters, to taking blood samples, to assisting with radiography or ultrasound examinations. Nurses will monitor anaesthetics, providing information to the vet and assisting with surgery when required. Post-operation, they will support and care for you and your pet, make sure they are fully recovered and be there to answer any questions you may have.

The code of conduct

All of our Registered Veterinary Nurses makes the following declaration I PROMISE AND SOLEMNLY DECLARE that I will pursue the work of my profession with integrity and accept my responsibilities to the public, my clients, the profession and the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons, and that, ABOVE ALL, my constant endeavour will be to ensure the health and welfare of animals committed to my care.

And everything else

When they aren’t helping with surgery or carrying out in-patient care, there still isn’t any rest for our veterinary nurses!

They are in charge of keeping all the medical equipment and the practice maintained, cleaned and sterilised. They also keep on top of general administration including checking, correctly storing and ordering medicine and drugs.
