Megan has just joined us as a student Veterinary Nurse, having undertaken a pre nursing course at Askham Bryan last year. She will be working with us part of the week, and attending college on two days to study her course.
Mog is our practice cat who is often to be seen around the car park or supervising in the stables. She arrived a few years ago heavily pregnant, and once she had her kittens, we found she had a serious heart condition, Tetralogy of Fallot. We therefore decided we would keep her here as she could be closely monitored. So far she has kept remarkably well!
