There's lots of satisfaction to be gained from managing emergency cases, both medically and surgically. It's difficult to get this in daytime practice and we’ve designed our Edge programmes to ease the transition. All vets have strong caring and responsibility values, but we're also looking for people who are keen to help others and progress themselves, so they're motivated to learn and to share those learnings. However, underpinning all of this is our vets must be strong, empathetic communicators, as emergency situations are often a time of great stress for the pet owner.
