We are extremely proud to have one of the very first veterinary nurses as one of our clients with us here at Friars Moor Vets!
Here she is posing with her dog Midge and a medal that she was awarded for achieving the highest marks in her year when she qualified, wow!
She was a RANA (Royal Animal Nursing Auxiliaries), The RANA scheme was approved in 1961 and veterinary nursing became an officially recognised professional qualification with the first nurses qualifying in 1962.
Even though she would have qualified all those years ago she is still very active within the industry and stays involved in dog behaviour and welfare circles.
Her name hasn’t been shared for confidentiality but we wanted to celebrate this lovely lady’s achievements!
