Laura Dickson

BSc (Hons) RVN A1 Dip (HE) CVN DipAVN (Small Animal)


Laura qualified as a veterinary nurse in the UK in 2006. After gaining her
qualification she worked in a multi-disciplinary referral and first-opinion veterinary hospital, working alongside RCVS and European-recognised specialists in internal medicine, cardiology and orthopaedics. It was there Laura developed her passion for referral nursing, and she spent the next ten years working in some of Scotland's best referral hospitals.


In September 2016, she set off on her travels, arriving in New Zealand in January 2017 with the intention of staying for a year. But, like many others, she fell in love with New Zealand and forgot to go home!

As well as bringing years of experience in providing gold-standard care to her patients, Laura also brings leadership and management experience to the Animal Orthopaedics team. She is dedicated to teaching and learning and loves supporting others to grow in their roles.

Laura likes to get out and about outside of work, yet equally enjoys a good movie marathon. She is lucky enough to have shared custody of all of her friend’s pets.
