Isabelle Hunt

SVN and Environmental Lead

Hi, I started at quarry house vets in June 2022. I am training to become an RVN. I enjoy my training, there isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t learn something new. Not everyone can say they genuinely like their job but how can I not when I see so many adorable patients on a daily basis

Holly Mountford

Assistant Veterinary Nurse

I joined Quarry House Vets at the end of 2020 after previously working in a kennels and cattery. I enjoy my job because it feels great to see the pets feel better and know that I helped them. When I’m not at work I like to take my dog Archie the Dorkie (dachshund x yorkie) out for walks and go to the gym
