Most of us can sleep soundly in the knowledge that we're highly unlikely to catch disease from our pets. We're more likely to get woken up in the wee small hours or scratched, either accidentally or purposefully, if we choose to share our bed with a feline. Dogs, on the other hand, are usually well behaved and will love to snuggle up to their human pack member...
After a few hours of trying a few different things she left some notes and went. I was hoping for some super nanny style results but instead was just a lot of the same things we had been trying, also Poppy isn't food motivated at all (unlike me) and a lot of her ideas and suggestions were rewarding with treats - so that was that out the window.
Although we have recently introduced guidance to say that vets and veterinary nurses cannot refer to an unqualified colleague as a veterinary nurse, technically, anyone may use the title - even if they don't have a day of training or a clue about how to treat an animal. To put it quite frankly - the title 'veterinary nurse' has less protection in law than 'Melton Mowbray pork pie'!
In every sector there are good and bad. Good doctors and bad doctors, good bus drivers and bad bus drivers, the same goes for plumbers, builders, postmen, managers, customer service and every other job you can think of, so with this in mind you will come across a bad veterinary surgeon, nurse, receptionist , but in my experience they are few and far between.
