As Assistant Nurse Manager, Leanne has seen some interesting cases in our hospital. One of the most memorable was a Pomeranian who had received large wounds after being attacked by a larger dog. He was rushed in with shock, arrested on arrival and required CPR and surgery. After intensive nursing, he was able to go home and was considered to be one lucky little dog. This is definitely a case that holds a special place in Leanne’s heart.
Leanne advises aspiring vets that there are hard days, but very rewarding ones too. She emphasises the importance of treating not only the animal but also the owners. Leanne admires the Animal Emergency Service team for their constantly high standards of care and sense of family.
In her spare time, Leanne loves nothing more than spending time in the garden with her dogs, tidying the yard and planting natives and herbs. She loves exercising and going out for breakfast with her partners.
