Go behind the scenes in Surgery with Vicky
What is your role at Woodgreen and what is involved?
There are many tasks involved as part of my role as a registered Veterinary Nurse. I might be monitoring the anesthesia in theatre one day, to caring for the animals on our ward the next including hand-feeding or administrating medication.
What impact does your role have on the pets who come into our care?
In some cases, I might be saving their lives. Some might only need to be neutered or have a dental procedure, but others might come in with a fractured limb. We might need to insert a pin or consider amputation if their injury is more severe, to give them the best chance of survival.
