The partners/practice eventually merged and this is now the Pet Doctors Animal Hospital in Newport. Kay is currently studying a Level 3 Diploma in Veterinary Nursing at Sparsholt College in Winchester. She owns a much loved, elderly Border Terrier/Jack Russell cross who was born in August 1996. They still enjoy their walks together although they do take a little longer than they used to!
