Don’t just take our word for it, here’s what the team members have to say!
“I started at Holmefield as a work experience student at the age of 14 in 2008, then joined the team after leaving school. I then completed my veterinary nurse training and qualified as a Registered Veterinary Nurse in June 2015. I developed a keen interest in diabetes after one of my own cats developed the condition and I saw first-hand the difficulties owners can experience in caring for their diabetic pets, so I now run nurse diabetic clinics to share my experience.”- Emily Knight, RVN
