Katie
Katie RVN Deputy Head Registered Veterinary Nurse

Meet Katie and her gorgeous Cockerpoo Dexter. Her family surprised her with Dexter as her 21st birthday present as she’s always wanted a loyal companion of her own. In 2018 Dexter got a new friend in Ozzy, a working spaniel puppy who quickly settled in. At home she has two guinea pigs called Peppa and Layla. Katie qualified in 2013 and loves working in our friendly team, she has recently taken the position of deputy head nurse within the practice. Katie loves to talk about raw food feeding and seeing the benefits this brings to our patients, as well as looking at alternative ways to help treat pets. She loves using the K-Laser to help patients and seeing the improvement a course of treatment can make to that patient’s life.

Katie's most memorable moment in practice so far was helping a dog who was giving birth to puppies that were stuck. Following a lot of nursing care everything turned out well and she loves the rewards that nursing these kinds of cases can bring.

In her spare time Katie loves to spend time walking her dogs and socialising with her friends. Katie is also part of the Calverley Chasers flyball team along with fiancé Ben. They have a caravan and love to travel around the country at weekends with their team to play other flyball tournaments. Dexter is quite the flyball aficionado!
