What do you like about working at WellPet Vets the most?

I enjoy spending my time working with animals, being able to help those patients in need and giving them best care possible. I also enjoy the variety of animals that walk through the front door and getting to know each ones individual personality. The staff are pretty swell too smile emoticon

After finishing high school I went to uni to complete an Animal Science course before deciding it wasn’t what i wanted to do and left after a year. I worked at Coles for several years before deciding i wanted to become a Vet nurse and completed my Cert IV in 2012.

I Have 2 cats. Mushu, a 10 year old Burmese that was adopted from Mountains Animals Hospital, and Mr Kit, and 18 year old D.S.H., who was also adopted from the clinic after he came in as a stray and his owner could no longer look after him.
I have a 13 year old Bantam chicken named Woogle who still lays the occasional egg.
A very fussy rabbit named Zephyr who enjoys digging burrows.
