Mrs Pugh will work at Haven Veterinary Group’s practices in Hull and Hedon, and wants to make more people aware of the services VNs offer.

Raising awareness

She said: “It’s been a while since we have had a practising RVN at the Holderness Road (Hull) branch and we’d like to remind people I am here for them to chat with, should they have any issues with their pets.”

She is also one of the practice’s two clinical coaches, available to offer support for students training to be a veterinary nurse.

Mrs Pugh also offers:

  • weight management and adolescent clinics for puppies and kittens
  • senior clinics
  • second vaccinations
  • nail clippings
  • anal gland expressions

Excellent addition

Haven Veterinary Group owner and principal vet Jim Morris said: “Andrea is an excellent addition to the team at both practices.

“We have recently invested significantly in our Holderness Road practice and we’re keen to continue to offer much-needed extended services, such as weight management clinics and excellent levels of care for all our patients.”
