  • LAURA SENIOR VETERINARY NURSE

    SENIOR VETERINARY NURSE

    Laura has been crazy in love with animals since before she could walk, so it made sense for her to choose a career in the animal care industry. After joining a veterinary practice in 2014, Laura was so excited to qualify as a trained veterinary nurse in 2016.

    She is a truly compassionate nurse who has had experience with fearful and anxious family pets and for these reasons, she has a special interest and further training in animal behaviour and low stress handling.

    Laura believes strongly that every animal deserves to feel safe and loved no matter what! When she rescued and hand raised her cat Ronny from a tiny, malnourished kitten, she formed an incredible bond with him and soon realised that she had an undeniable passion for pet rescue. Laura has now chosen to dedicate her spare time to the animal welfare community by becoming a foster carer.
