Rebecca’s Pets

Becky has a flat-coated retriever called George who still acts like a puppy despite being 12 years old! He’s a big character and greets everyone with lots of licks! She also has a large tropical freshwater fish tank with a variety of fish and shrimps.

“I get a great sense of satisfaction out of writing and it has always been a passion of mine outside of day-to-day veterinary work.”
