Finished my exams today ♥️♥️♥️♥️


Bring on the last semester!

If anyone is thinking of doing a degree in veterinary nursing I cannot recommend DkIT highly enough. They are absolutely amazing❤️💜❤️💜❤️

It's 3 years, full time. Lecturers are amazing. Small class. Fantastic practicals and, even throughout the pandemic, they have kept the ship afloat with online lectures/tutorials etc.

Back in the day I studied zoology in Trinity. Fine college if you're extremely academic and don't need any one-on-one attention and you don't mind being just a number. Student 00047481- that was me. In Dkit I am Yvonne, the crazy hedgehog girl who has no interest is cats, dogs, horses or any other animal except wildlife 😂

Any other Dkit heads out there??

NPWS Kildare Office are requesting information from the public regarding the illegal shooting and injuring of a Buzzard in the Carbury area, December 30th.

Buzzards are a raptor and play an important role in Irelands biodiversity, their diet is varied and consistis of small mammals, birds, invertebrates and frogs. They will also eat carrion.

Buzzards are fully protected in Ireland under the EU Birds Directive and under Irelands Wildlife Act (1976). It is an offence to kill or injure one and to do so will result in a court case and possible fine.

The bird was taken to Kildare Animal Foundation by a member of the public and has since been x-rayed and treated. It is currently doing well.

NPWS request that any information the public can provide to assist in our investigation be directed to Conservation Ranger Eileen Canny at Eileen.Canny@chg.gov.ie or 0761002589

Hi all! Me again!

Wondering if there are any veterinary clinics out there with no use for any style of cages in the pics below. Happy to pay at a reasonable price. Perhaps you have upgraded and no longer use yours?

Perhaps they are too small for cats and dogs but would suit hedgehogs fine and are just taking up space on your ward?

Anything considered but must be in good condition.

Prefer perspex but stainless steel OK at the right price.

Please pm us if you have anything.

Many thanks

"I'm doing it for the hedgehogs, I'm doing it for the hedgehogs" 😂😂

All this studying is hard but I know it will be worth it in the end 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏

For the rest of my life I will be working with wildlife so it has to be 😭😭😂🙈

Somebody needs to speak for them💔❤️💔❤️

Currently we are the only country is Europe without a dedicated wildlife hospital and in turn a dedicated wildlife vet and a dedicated wildlife nurse. I will be that nurse. They deserve it.

Bare with me folks we are nearly there😙❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️🦔🦔🦔🦔🦔🦔🦔🦔🦔🦔🦔🦔🦔🦔🦔🦔🦔🦔🦔🦔🦔🦔🦔🦔🦔🦔🦔
