Blue Cross awards top vet nurse of the year

Fiona Leathers from Bonnybridge has been named ‘Vet Nurse of the Year’ by Blue Cross pet charity.

Fiona, who is a veterinary nurse at A & G Vets on Main Street in the Falkirk village, received 16 nominations from clients and colleagues.

She was nominated for going “above and beyond when it comes to looking after pets” and for making her clients “feel more like a friend”

Fiona was presented with her award by Kath Urwin, Veterinary Clinical Manager at Blue Cross Friday 6 October at the British Veterinary Nursing Association (BVNA) Congress in Telford, Shropshire

Kath said: “Fiona is clearly highly regarded and much loved by her clients and their pets. She is passionate about helping pets and while not doing this at her practice she fills her spare time by volunteering for veterinary and animal rescue charities. She really goes the extra mile for animals needing help and is a deserved winner of this year’s award.”

Fiona said: “I was speechless when I heard I had won this year’s Vet Nurse of the Year award, which, as everyone who knows me can tell you, doesn’t happen very often! I was truly gobsmacked, delighted and grateful to everyone who nominated me.”
