Kristy is one of our super-nurses and one of our longest serving vet nurses at Marshall & Pringle Petmed. Kristy has a great memory for pets and their owners.
Kristy did her National Certificate of Veterinary Nursing at CPIT in 2004 and has been at Marshall & Pringle Petmed ever since.
She is passionate about all aspects of her job, and has a special interest in surgical & critical care nursing.
Outside the clinic Kristy is kept busy with her two young sons Lincoln and Fletcher, and helping her partner Nick on their free range egg farm.
Kristy has a Labrador - Marley, & 4 cats - Frankie, Mack, Melvin & Henry.
Fiona is another of our star nurses and has had lots of experience since completing her National Certificate in Veterinary Nursing at Christchurch Polytechnic in 1999. Fiona has been at Marshall & Pringle Petmed since 2012.
Fiona is an expert at practical handling and just loves puppies. She is also very good at winding up any dogs that come into our clinic, just in time to see the Vet (thanks Fee!). She is a valuable part of our team, and has an unconditional amount of love to all animals and people that come though this clinic.
Outside the clinic, Fiona enjoys spending time walking her Boxer Tess, or just cuddling with her while she reads. She has 2 daughters, 3 cats and 1 rabbit to also keep her busy.
Val is one of Marshall & Pringle Petmed's original Vet Nurses, and she is a familiar face to most of our clients and their pets. Val has been working with Murray and Barb since their first day at work in 1976! She is a very experienced and valued member of our team.
Val's special skill is recognising clients by their car and bringing up their details before they walk in the door. Val has a vast wealth of vet nursing knowledge and she can help with absolutely anything you need to know.
In her free time Val loves to bake healthy cakes for the staff. She also enjoys tramping and is an experienced apiarist.
Bridie is our ever-efficient part time nurse, who can be found behind the desk two afternoons a week. An experienced vet nurse (Bridie first started with Murray & Barb in 1977, just one year after Val!), Bridie has a wealth of knowledge and common sense experience. Bridie is Marshall & Pringle Petmed's Facebook Administrator (check out our page!) and is always updating our page with useful information for pet owners. Photos of our clients' pets also feature from time to time.
We often say Bridie should start a pet detective agency, she is that good at helping reunite missing animals with their owners. She is also our cleaner extraordinaire, and is not happy until the washing basket is empty and the mopping done!
Outside the clinic Bridie loves spending time on her lifestyle block with her animals, cherries and peonies. Bridie also dotes on her grandchildren and loves spending time with her family.
Jo McGregor is our canine behaviour specialist nurse and has been at Marshall & Pringle Petmed since 2002. She is well-qualified with a BSc in Zoology and Psychology, and Certificates in Canine Behaviour, Animal Science and Technology.
Jo takes our puppy preschool classes here at the clinic, and she also offers housecalls for behavioral issues that clients may need help with. She is also the animal carer for the kid’s TV show Fanimals - looking after guest pets as well as the Fanimals furry family.
When not in studio, she also trains KiwiPride Australian Labradoodle puppies, to help them become well-rounded therapy puppies prior to joining their future forever homes.
Lauren has always loved animals. She was such a great student nurse she was snapped up by Marshall and Pringle after she finished her National Certificate in Veterinary Nursing in 2012.
Lauren loves surgery, teaching new vet nursing students, keeping things tidy and meeting all our lovely patients.
Outside of the clinic, Lauren has her time taken up by her greyhound Rex, cat son Toulouse, and her 4 'special care' horses. She is also a keen traveller.
