  1. Zara Boland

This article brings together information from a number of charities, animal welfare organisations, the British Veterinary Nursing Association and private vet practices to gauge the breadth and depth of community veterinary nursing across the UK. Zara Boland describes the current role of community vet nurses, as well as their future potential and the rewards for practices that are willing to embrace the concept.
