Emergency clinic open 24 hours a day


A Veterinary Technician at North Town

My shift starts when I open my eyes, what is the day going to bring, what is the weather outside, how are the animals going to be today?

Everything falls into play.

When I get to the clinic I review my day, fully booked with routine appointments, a full hospital of sickies.  As the weekend starts for the outside world, North Town has not slept.  As I round with our overnight technician and find out who is new at the hospital,  who is going home, what excitement happened overnight I start my day with my Doctor.  We take each patient out and examine them thoroughly and with the respect and love they deserve.

I spend time with each of my patients, petting them, talking to them quietly.  Letting them know everything will be ok and I promise to do the best I can.  I am the advocate for them, their nurse and their friend.

I will take x-rays to see their broken bones, bandage their wounds, relieve their pain with medication and talk to their mums and dads like they are one of my own.

I became a Veterinary Technician for the animals. I work at North Town Veterinary Hospital for the emergencies, the routine vaccine appointments, the people I meet and for the people I work with.

Community Parks and Dogs

End of school is here!  As a mum of two young boys, we live in our little park. Dogs pass through with their owners enjoying an evening walk, the kids are playing grounders and building sand castles, and the parents are unwinding from a hectic day at work and after-school activities.
