Shannon Dowell - Animal Care Assistant and Student Veterinary Nurse

Shannon Dowell - Animal Care Assistant and Student Veterinary Nurse

My name is: Shannon.

My position at Bright Side is: Animal Care Assistant and Student Veterinary Nurse.

I am originally from: Leicestershire.

I have the following qualifications: GCSE in various subjects, AS Level in Psychology, Sociology and Biology.

In the past I have gained experience by: Volunteering and working at Redgate Animal Sanctuary. I’ve also completed work experience at several vets around Leicestershire.

My favourite pastimes include: Horse riding and reading.

My furry friends are: Lot’s! I’ve collected quite the menagerie, including 2 dogs, 2 Gecko’s, an African Grey Parrot, a Gypsy Cob horse named Rodney Trotter, various chickens, a cockerill and a rat named Scabbers!

If I wasn’t working at Bright Side I would be: Looking for veterinary work and wallowing in self-pity until I found it!

My favourite holiday location is: Cornwall beach with the dogs.

Something that not many people know about me is: I once owned a Greenbottle Blue Tarantula that I was scared of. I kept her until she passed away naturally – even though I was scared of her!

I love Bright Side Vets because: The team are wonderful to work with and are really friendly and care about
