Sarah Carrick

Sarah Carrick

Nurse R.V.N.

Sarah has been a nurse for 8 years. She trained and qualified at Howells Vets following ten years caring for adults with challenging behaviours. Her clinical interests at work include medical nursing and in particular hormonal disorders. In addition to the more well-known duties of a Veterinary Nurse, Sarah regularly undertakes pregnancy testing in pigs, using ultrasound. Her favourite thing about being a nurse is working hard as part of a diverse team to treat sick animals and eventually see them discharged back to their owners in good health. She also enjoys working with and supporting Student nurses along their journey to becoming qualified nurses. Her personal interests include her dogs, blue and gold Macaw Parrot, and spending time with her family.

Nurse R.V.N.

Shelley has been a veterinary nurse for four and a half years. She completed her training with Howells Vets and qualified as a registered veterinary nurse in April 2019. She really enjoys a varied caseload but has particular interests in radiographic work, nurse consultations and different aspects of medical and surgical nursing. Prior to gaining her qualification in small animals, she worked with horses in and out of practice. Shelley enjoys working as part of a team and hopes to advance her skills by taking further training in specific areas of veterinary nursing. When she is not at work, her main interest is enjoying the countryside whilst walking with her dogs.
