Annie Age 11 from Dublin

I Wish to be ……… A Vet

Annie’s passion for animals, especially kittens and puppies was very apparent when we spoke to her Mum Heather.

Annie adores animals especially sick ones and really wants to be a Vet when she is older.

Annie spent the day with our friends in the ISPCA in Longford where she helped the staff and volunteers look after the animals in their care.

Annie got plenty of hands-on experience, helping to wash puppies, feed tiny newborns, walk a dog, brush bunnies, give medicine to kittens, feed horses and give plenty of cuddles too.

On Tuesday she was given the chance to look behind the scenes at two Vet practices.

She looked at x-rays & equipment, filled in charts, observed an operation, listened for heartbeats with our friends at Bray Vet. Later that afternoon she met some very different animals with at Bairbre O’Malley’s Veterinary Hospital.

The family stayed at Druids Glen Resort and were looked after really well, Make-A-Wish had a box of goodies left on Annie’s bed when she her arrived. But the huge stuffed cuddly dog turned out to be a favourite night time companion.
