Whyalla in the summer – all I knew was that it would be hot! Working at the Whyalla veterinary clinic was a great experience and I found the practice very friendly and progressive. It was my first veterinary job in Australia so I needed to brush up on a few things we don’t get back home, like heartworm and brown snake bites. Andrew, Yuri and all of the nurses were very helpful when I first started and I soon got into the routine. I enjoyed my adventures to Cowell and Roxby Downs as well as the work in Whyalla. The clinics are very well equipped and I even witnessed the arrival of a brand new rigid endoscope. The surgical and hospitalization facilities are excellent and the nurses are very experienced. They also provide a great morning tea and invited me out to barbecues and parties in the evenings so I didn’t get lonely!

I think the rehousing program is a great idea and it ensured I’m now competent in the microsurgery of juvenile desexings! It’s also such a great feeling when a stray gets rehoused. One of my most surreal experiences was treating a few kangaroos for various ailments. Its amazing handling such unique creatures – though I found my knowledge was tested because we didn’t learn a lot about them at university in Edinburgh! During my weekends off I traveled throughout South Australia sampling everything from the outback to the wineries. And the real bonus is I’ve missed the English winter!
