My name is Cara and I am currently completing my Vet Nursing course. I have always had a passion towards animals and always had a special place in my heart to have a duty of care to any animal great or small. From a young age I grew up with a Bishon Frise and had her for 16.5 years. I was constantly surrounded by family and friends pets and grew to love animals more as I grew older. Today I am working in my dream job. I love greeting clients with a smile and having a pat of their furry friend when they walk through our door. I love being around people and helping in any way I can.
