Hayley Thompson, White Cross Vets Veterinary Nurse, Mckenna the Lurcher and school pupil Billie Richmond
We regularly visit schools, community groups and churches to talk to children and students about caring for their pets. This is White Cross Veterinary Nurse, Hayley, with her pet Lurcher, Mackenna, who she rescued as a puppy.
Hayley is one of our team who explains to students how to look after pets properly and identify any potential problems. “The children absolutely love the sessions and there are always plenty of questions. We provide all of the children with a certificate, stickers and a colouring book and it’s always a very worthwhile and informative event.”
We also offer free pet care for school pets during the summer, so that the parents and teachers who look after them can be reassured they will receive the best treatment if they become unwell.
