Meet Sapphire and Donk!

Sapphire is a qualified Registered Veterinary Nurse (RVN) who has worked as part of the team here at Oakham since 2014.  She loves the variety of animals and cases that we see here, particularly the more unusual animals such as birds, exotics and wildlife.

Living on a smallholding she's spent a lot of time working with and caring for animals, which paved the way for a career in Veterinary Nursing.  She has a variety of creatures at home from farm stock like sheep, goats, pigs and poultry through to domestic pets like dogs, cats and ferrets.

Dogs are a huge part of Sapphire's life, starting with her loyal chocolate Labrador named Tadpole who helped with her other pursuits of working the ferrets, walking and hill climbing.  She has a new best friend, Donk (pictured), who is very different and keeps her on her toes.  In very rare moments of free time she enjoys swimming and crochet.
