Alana Glading has always loved animals and knew since she was in high school she wanted to be a veterinary nurse. Now, after over 10 years of veterinary nursing, Alana hasn’t looked back and loves it just as much as she did when she first became a vet nurse!
For anyone interested in becoming a veterinary nurse, Alana says while it’s a hard job it’s so rewarding! For her, the patient that holds a special place in her heart was a dog who came in with tick paralysis but also had a heart murmur. He was placed on a ventilator for a week then had to have a tracheostomy. But after three weeks in hospital, seeing him recover and go home to his family was unforgettable.
