With the Christmas and New Year Holidays approaching many people will be spending the time at home with the families and pets. But please spare a thought for our Emergency Teams who we be staffing our 24 Hour Hospitals round the clock all through the festive period. These dedicated nurse and vets ensure that if you and your pet need help then it’s there.
Working Christmas day is an unusual experience. When most people can relax or start to prepare for festivities, you have to get to the hospital to start your shift. Taking over from the night team, the vets and nurses have to ensure all the inpatients are comfortable and continue their treatments. Then the calls will come in. And it’s at that point our staff know it’s all worthwhile because that’s when they can really help.
We are lucky we have this team of dedicated nurses and vets who understand that by forgoing the usual festivities they can make a real difference for pets and their owners.
