Veterinary Nursing

If you love animals, Wintec can help you make a career out of it. Whether it’s working in a veterinary clinic as a nurse, or caring for animals in catteries, kennels or pet retailers, Wintec can help you get where you want to be.

As a Veterinary Nurse your day will involve taking x-rays, collecting blood samples and caring for sick and injured animals. You could do a spell on reception, clean out cages, sterilise and prepare surgical instruments, administer medication and injections and assist veterinarians on call-outs to houses and farms.

Animal Attendants could work in kennels, veterinary practices, catteries, pet shops, research or animal care centres. Your role could involve bathing, grooming, feeding and exercising animals, cleaning their cages and treating minor injuries under the supervision of a veterinarian.

Animal Control Officers ensure that people control their animals so they do not create problems for others. To achieve this you may have to give warnings or issue offence notices, educate the public about animal welfare and catch stray dogs. You may also be involved in feeding and caring for animals in pounds, carrying out cleaning duties and organising the adoption of animals.
