  • Karla Tanner RVN

    Advanced Nursing Manager

    I began my career as a Veterinary nurse at a referral Hospital in Worthing, in 1999. In 2001 just before qualifying, I moved to the Island to join the Riverbank Team, working my way up to assistant Head Nurse. In 2006, I decided to take a break to spend time with my children; and as a family we moved to Germany. In 2012 I returned to Veterinary Nursing on the Island, and became an RVN, I am also a member of the BVNA and ISFM. In 2015 I joined Pet Doctors as a sole charge Night Nurse in Guildford, I enjoy the unpredictable nature of emergency work, never knowing what the next phone call will hold in store! Now I am back at Newport, and as much as I enjoyed working in Guildford, it is nice to once again go home in the evening, and be part of a large team. I have always enjoyed nurse clinics and missed that working at night. My family are the proud owners of a brother and sister Abyssinian cross cats, 4 guinea pigs, and two whippets who are brother and sister born via emergency caesarean which I assisted with, so I was holding them as they took their first breath.
