Meet Anna

Veterinary Nurse, Norway

AniCura Kongsvinger Clinic

Why I work with animals?  I’ve loved taking care of animals since I 
was a little girl. 

The best thing at work last week:  I work with a great group of people, so we make everyday fun.

Funniest/most strange meeting with an animal:  We did a fracture repair on a young wallaby at my previous work. Since he was so young he had to be kept in a pouch/backpack post-op and the staff took turns carrying this little wallaby on their bellies just like the mom would have done. 

My first animal or animal encounter:  The first one I remember was a Dachshund named Zorro. 

My pets:  Two cats, Jerry Lee Lewis and Johnny Cash, and a German Shorthaired Pointer named Svea.   

What was most challenging at work during the week?  Time!

Favorite area within animal care:  Laboratory and emergency care.

Latest journey: Phoenix, Arizona in the US (my old hometown). I lived and worked in Phoenix for 10 years. I went to USA to work as an au pair but stayed and did my training to veterinary nurse 
in Phoenix.
