Sam qualified as Registered Veterinary Nurse in Summer 2018 from the College of Animal Welfare, before joining the Lamond team in January 2019. Sam has always had a keen interest in animals working for both the Scottish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland. After spending some time living abroad in New Zealand he realised Veterinary Nursing was the path for him, coming home to study in Scotland. Sam, in particular, enjoys the nursing of feline and small furry/exotic patients, having recently been appointed our Cat-Friendly Advocate. Sam has a small menagerie of pets including 4 cats, an African Pygmy Hedgehog and tropical fish.
