Nicole Doran

Senior Vet Nurse

I have been a vet nurse at MRV for 19yrs (as of 2021) and I couldn't imagine doing anything else.
I have loved animals as long as I can remember.

I would probably say my favourite part of the job is being there for the animals making their visit as happy and comfortable as possible. Especially if they are in hospital without their families. I love them all like they are my own!

Oh and pus, I love a good abscess.

Trish Keating

Senior Vet Nurse

About 18 years ago I took stock of my life and decided to give it a complete shake up. A love of animals and a desire to do something nurturing and worthwhile lead me back to school in 2003 to study Veterinary Nursing.

These 18 years have been extremely challenging, often heartbreaking, but intensely rewarding. I have worked at MRV all this time firstly as a volunteer, then employee.

This 'new' career has even taken me overseas twice as a volunteer nurse for Vets Beyond Boarders in Sikkim, India. 


Amanda Dunscombe RVN

Senior Vet Nurse

I have had the privilege of working as a vet nurse for 13.5yrs (as of 2021). I started volunteering at MRV in 2008 and in 2009 was put on as an employee.

Animals are and have always been my joy and passion in life.

I love that everyday is different, getting to do first puppy/kitten visits, nursing a sick hospital patient, assisting with an orthopedic surgery. 

I love continuing education, always learning new things as the industry is constantly growing and changing.

My favourite part of the job is monitoring anaesthetics, surgery is so interesting to observe and be apart of.

Kenny Stanton

Senior Vet Nurse

I've had the pleasure of being a Vet Nurse of 21 years (as of 2021).

As long as I can remember I have always loved animals. 

My favourite part of this job is caring for our clients pets as if they are my own. Giving them cuddles, talking to them to give comfort when they're in a place they don't know and don't understand why they are there. I also love helping in surgery and monitoring anaesthetics.

Being able to observe the different techniques our vets use is interesting and amazes me at what they can do.

Jenna Dewick

Vet Nurse

I've been a Vet Nurse for 7 years (as of 2021).

I have always wanted to work with animals from a young age. Prior to vet nursing I was a zoo keeper, medicating/treating Koala's, Little Penguins, Stingrays, Baboons and much more. This inspired me to further my knowledge into Veterinary Nursing.

I love nursing sick and injured animals back to health.

My passions are grooming, animal training and medical nursing.

One of my most rewarding moments thus far was when a tiny 2 day old kitten came into the clinic with umbilical cord still attached, cold and not in a good way. I worked on him day and night, with my persistence and his fighting spirit he survived and is now my 4th cat family member Marshall who will be 2 this year.

Sarah Doran

Vet Nurse 

I've been in the industry for almost 3 years, I qualified as a Vet Nurse in January 2021.

I've always wanted to work with animals, never have I not had an animal in my life. I feel lost without them.

Seeing young animals grow up and helping animals recover from illness is what I love.

Knowing that I can help make a difference in our patients lives is what I love.

Haley McGown

 Vet Nurse

I've been a Vet Nurse for almost 24 years, working at MRV for 21 of those years.

At 16 years old I completed work experience where I was asked to volunteer over Christmas. By the end of January I was being trained as a Vet Nurse.

I've also worked at the Celia Hammond Animal Trust in London whilst on a working holding in my early 20's.

I love being a Vet Nurse because it allows me to help all kinds of animals feel better in their time of need - and maybe get some cuddles and kisses along the way.

My favouirte part of the job has always been anything gross and gory (how I love a good abscess) and puppy breath.

I've now gone into a different field as a Primary School Teacher as my fulltime job but you'll still see me on a Sunday once a month.

Head of Indoor Security

Sadly, our small but mighty little Sasha passed away after a short illness on 16th November 2015. Her bravery, spirit and will to live were an inspiration to all of us. We are glad she was lucky enough to be loved by so many during the time she had with us.


Head of Backyard Security; Puppy Preschool Instructor

"I had neck issues when I arrived, but I’m OK now as long as I take my meds. I’m quite a blunt tool but I love food and playing with kids and puppies"


Pest Control; Head Pest

"I had no issues when I arrived. I cast my spell over Haley, who loves me, so I could stay. Now I just do as I please which usually involves making a nuisance of myself."


Head of Waiting Room Entertainment

"I arrived when I was too young to fly. I used to be called Fergus but quickly became Fergie when I laid an egg. I like to try to talk to people in the waiting room, and splash them when I’m having a bath" - Unfortunately our sweet Fergie passed away November, 2018.


PR Team

"I was the only puppy ever to fail Puppy Preschool. I’m still totally disobedient and just like doing things my way...slowly!"


PR Team

"I just kept growing and sometimes get mistaken for a small horse. I actually produce enough saliva to digest a small horse every day and like to share it with everyone."
