holistic vet home visits

A DAY IN THE LIFE…

WHAT IS A TYPICAL DAY FOR A HOLISTIC VET?

“I’m not sure there is a typical day!” says Four Seasons Holistic Veterinary Care’s Vet Vicky Payne. “I work three days a week at Companion Care Vets Eastbourne which is a first opinion general practice where I will be doing vaccinations, examining sick pets, performing diagnostic work ups and doing surgery as well as any Holistic or Acupuncture referrals.

WHAT ARE YOUR OTHER DAYS LIKE?

“Thursday is a really busy day for me. I usually get up before 7 to train and exercise my dogs. I often visit a trainer near Tonbridge and combine this with doing routine health checks and vaccinations for his kennels. Then I hold a clinic at Goudhurst Vets where I see referrals from within the practice and from other practices in Kent. Today I had a lovely cat in for acupuncture. In the afternoon and evening I may have home visits as well, but not today.”

“The rest of the week will be taken up with a mixture of home visits and paperwork. I write for magazines including Your Dog magazine and give veterinary advice on several internet forums. I may also be preparing for First Aid talks or other lectures.”

SOUNDS BUSY! DO YOU GET ANY TIME OFF?!

“Oh yes! Clients often request visits after work which I am happy to offer and this allows me time off in the day to exercise and train my dogs.” Vicky has three English Springer Spaniels to keep her on her toes.

“I’m also lucky enough to ride a friends horse in the summer; that really is a great way to relax. ”
