Katie Gates
RVN, Pet Health Councillor
Registered Veterinary Nurse
 

Nursing Experience: I qualified as a veterinary nurse in 2004 after training here at the Millennium Veterinary practice. I am the senior consulting nurse, so I spend a lot of my time consulting and love the one to one contact with patients & clients that this brings. I am also a qualified pet health counsellor, which means I have a wide knowledge of subjects including nutrition, obesity & mobility. I manage a team of nursing assistants who assist us with caring for the animals in wards. My nurse consults range widely and include claw clipping, flea & worm checks, obesity clinics, mobility clinics, older pet and puppy clinics and many more. I consider myself very lucky to be able to do a job that I love. Every day is different at MVP, but always very rewarding!

Interests: I have a keen interest in nutrition and weight loss in pets, I like the satisfaction of helping clients make the most of their much loved pets. I also like supporting clients through the trials and tribulations of owning a new puppy, and helping them to get started with training and behavioural advice. There’s nothing more rewarding than watching a lively puppy develop into a much loved settled family member.

Activities: Outside of work I compete in dog agility with my Yorkshire terrier ‘Buster’. He is a real character and a little bit naughty, but he really is a little star! Buster has grown up at MVP after being abandoned as a puppy. He loves nothing more than coming to see his girls in the office and sleeping the day away under his table. I also have a new member of the family, her name is Dolly and she is a Yorkie cross poodle, she is very lovely and already a bit of a handful.
