Kia Ora – I’m Julie South – the host of Paws Claws and Wet Noses – the podcast celebrating all creatures great and small and the fantabulous professionals who look after them all.

I remember watching my first episode (a very looong time ago) of All Creatures Great and Small and being absolutely enthralled.

Sadly, as much as I would like to have been a veterinary professional, my brain just doesn’t think like it needs to. Science and me just don’t go together so I knew I’d never be a clinician of any sort!

Today – working for VetStaff – I get to hear the wonderful stories of what makes veterinarians and veterinary nurses follow their heart to look after animals.

Until I started in recruitment, I didn’t realise just how hard these men and women work.

Not only do they work long days (on their feet the entire time) but they put their hearts and souls into being the best nurses and doctors they can be for people’s fur babies and farm stock.

It was listening to their stories that I thought these need to be shared. They’re all different and they’re all the same: all veterinary professionals just loooove animals!

So that’s what Paws Claws and Wet Noses is all about:

It’s my dream that by listening to this podcast, you also appreciate the wonderful veterinary professionals who pour their hearts and souls into their work every day to heal the creatures who can’t heal themselves.

If you’re a pet owner, the single one thing you can do to improve both your own life and that of your pet is to take out pet insurance.

Believe me, it’ll make such a difference to the level of care you’re able to provided for your fur babies as well as reducing the stress associated with visiting a veterinary clinic.

Please, therefore, if you haven’t taken out pet insurance please get in touch with Kerry at Southern Cross Pet Insurance. Have a chat with her and check out the different policies – for your peace of mind and the health of your beloved pet.

Thanks for listening!

with smiles,
