1. What’s the best part of your job?
Sending home happy and healthy pets to their families.
2. First pet…
Milky the sheep, a kelpie called Chip and Stormy the horse.
3. Most surprising animal encounter…
I was lucky enough to travel to the Galápagos Islands where I saw Giant tortoises and Iguanas up close, as well as lots of other cool animals. But the best part was when I snorkelled off one of the islands and a baby sea lion decided to hang out with me!
4. If you were an animal, what would you be?
A bear so that I could hibernate and miss all of winter!
5. What is your top tip for pet owners?
Just like with people, prevention is better (and easier) than a cure.
