Veterinary Nursing Awareness Month

Milton Keynes Veterinary Group
May is National Veterinary Nursing Awareness Month, designed to help create awareness of the importance of the veterinary nursing profession. At Milton Keynes Veterinary Group, we have a team of experienced veterinary nurses registered with the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons who will complete day to day tasks which will be around the care of your pet.

In additional to their training to become a veterinary nurse, many have completed or are currently undertaking further training and qualifications including nutrition, medicine, anaesthesia, emergency nursing, behaviour, small mammals, exotics species, avian species, feline medicine, and many more.

A veterinary nurse will complete a wide range of jobs within their routine including:
  • Nurse consults to discuss, weight, preventative care and give second vaccinations
  • Admitting patient for procedures or hospitalisation
  • Preparing animals for theatre and sterilisation of the surgical site
  • Monitoring anaesthetics
  • Taking blood samples
  • Testing samples within our in-house laboratory and arriving external laboratory tests
  • Cleaning kennels and feeding the in-patients
  • Administration of medicines
  • Sterile cleaning of theatre
  • Positioning patients for x-rays
  • Dispensing medication
  • Reception duties – answering telephone calls, booking appointment, greeting clients
  • Performing dental scale and polishes
  • Dressing wounds
  • And much more!
As you can tell our veterinary nurses are a vital part of the daily running of our practice and we couldn’t provide the care to your pet without them.

New additions strengthen veterinary team.

Over the course of the year, we have sought to expand our team of veterinary surgeons. No, we don’t mean feeding them more chocolate, but increasing the quantity, and experience.

Joe Barrington has been with us in a part-time capacity for a year now, but became full time at the beginning of summer. Throughout university and since graduating he has had a strong interest in diagnostic imaging and dog behaviour. He is currently studying ultrasonography. Joe is shown below performing surgery on a horse in a previous practice.

Tiago Bispo started earlier in the year, initially to cover Anja’s maternity leave. Tiago’s area of interest is cardiology. He consults mostly at Stoke Road, but sadly will be leaving us to start an internship at a referral centre later this year. It is a fantastic opportunity for him and we wish him well.

Carl Jarrett qualified in 1997 at Pretoria University in South Africa. After qualifying, he returned to the UK to work in small animal practice. Carl has a strong interest in both soft tissue and orthopaedic surgery and worked in Australia for 7 years, learning and becoming proficient at advanced orthopaedic procedures. Here is Carl with some of his own pets on his smallholding.

Having high calibre staff is important to us, enabling us to provide the very best care possible for you and your pets. They regularly partake in continuing professional development as required by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons and have regular team meetings within the practice to keep abreast of changes in practice policy.

However, as important as it is that our vets and nurses are highly qualified, equally, if not more important, is that they are caring and compassionate. We really feel that they look after their patients as if they are their own.
