Veterinary Nursing Awareness Month

by Handy Mag

…and why we love what we do

Every May a group of highly trained and skilled professionals gather to educate the public in just how much we do in the Veterinary profession.

Veterinary Nurses play a key role in the smooth running of any Veterinary practice, and here at Ryedale Vets we pride ourselves in training many of our own nurses in house, nurturing our nurses and encouraging them to find their niche area, which not only provides fulfillment in their career, but also allows us as a practice to offer a massive range of knowledge and skills to our patients and their owners.

We are very proud of our 16 strong nursing team, which is made up of Registered Veterinary Nurses, Student Veterinary Nurses and Veterinary Care Assistants, all of whom play a vital role in patient care, keeping your pets safe and comfortable while they are with us, be that for a routine appointment, a planned surgical procedure, hospitalisation or emergency treatment.

Just some of the skills Veterinary Nurses are trained and qualified to do include: admitting and discharging patients, collecting and running of blood samples, placing of intravenous catheters and fluid therapy, administering of medications by all routes, radiography, theatre and surgery prep, monitoring of anaesthesia, minor surgical procedures including lump removals, non invasive dental work, post operative monitoring and care, inpatient care, emergency and critical care, training and mentoring students, customer care, stock control, insurance claims, and running clinics (in house and as district nursing calls) varying from claw clips, microchips, repeat vaccinations, monthly injections such as for arthritis and allergies, to emptying anal glands, diet advice and much more besides….

Our nurse clinics and district nursing visits prove very popular and fill up very quickly, so don’t forget to book your nurse appointment with us!
