Holly has been a Senior Veterinary Nurse at Knutsford Vets since the doors opened in 2014. She plays a big role in delivering many of the excellent services that Knutsford offers at the surgery, including the six month health checks and a range of scans and procedures. She has completed a BSC (Hons) in Veterinary Nursing, a BSAVA Merit Award in Anaesthesia and is currently completing a BSAVA Merit Award in Dermatology. She also uses her valuable experience to train new members of staff and student veterinary nurses.
Holly’s day to day tasks are a little varied, but mostly consists of working with the team to set up and prepare for operations or any other procedures. Other daily tasks include x-rays and ultrasound investigations; monitoring patients during general anaesthesia; taking care of the patients that are admitted for surgical or medical reasons; running and taking laboratory tests; taking radiographs; performing dental mapping; scaling and polishing teeth. Holly ensures that the practice is clean and stocked to run efficiently, as well as training new members of staff and student veterinary nurses.
Outside of work, Holly likes to travel when she gets the chance, trace her family tree and take care of her demanding ginger cat, Ron. Her hidden talent is rapping every word in Gangsta’s Paradise by Coolio. Holly enjoys watching musicals and Indiana Jones films. The most unusual animal that Holly has treated was a tortoise with a broken leg.
