Veterinary Nurse

Caitlyn Cannon
Caitlyn Cannon RVN Veterinary Nurse

I always knew that one day I would work with animals and at a very young age I realised that my calling was in veterinary nursing. At just 15 I started spending my evenings after school helping at my local veterinary practice and my weekends volunteering at a non-profit cat shelter. In 2011 I started my veterinary nursing apprenticeship at an agricultural college in Sussex.

Since qualifying I moved away from my family home in West Sussex and have spent the last few years bouncing between Glasgow and South Africa. I have worked in first opinion and referral practice as well as at a big cat project and have had to incredible experiences of working with animals of a huge variety of species from your domestic family pets right up to the biggest cat species, the Siberian tiger.

 

I have a special interest in rabbit care and welfare, as such I am often known as the crazy rabbit lady, and also in canine behaviour and positive training methods.

Sadly I don't have any of my pets living with me just now, but I am the proud owner of 2 gorgeous bunnies, RoRo and Hector, who live with my parents down South. I also have 2 wonderful donkeys, Sonny and Cher (I did not name them!), Joseph a very cheeky young cow, and Enid (aka Peep Peep) the most spoilt Silkie chicken you could ever have the pleasure to meet.

When I'm not busy caring for your pets I can often be found exploring more of this beautiful country trying to find new places to photograph.

Although I am a relatively new addition to the team here at Shore it feels like I have been here forever and I have felt incredibly welcomed by the awesome team and our clients too. If you haven't had the chance to meet me yet the blue hair and English accent tend to give me away!
