Join Nicola Jarvis, a passionate veterinary surgeon from Red Wings Horse Sanctuary, as she shares her fascinating experiences in this light-hearted chat.

Nicola qualified from the Royal Veterinary College in 1990 and after working in mixed practice in Norfolk, she became Rossdales’ first ever intern in 1993. Nicky then joined Redwings Horse Sanctuary in 1996 as a locum and loved it so much she never left!

Redwings currently cares for over 1500 rescued horses, ponies, donkeys and mules at eleven sites around the UK. Nicola is responsible for overseeing the team of dedicated vets, equine veterinary nurses and equine care staff who look after their health and well-being.

From quirky tales about ‘flying giraffes’ to more serious topics such as the impact of Equine Odontoclastic Tooth Resorption and Hypercementosis (EOTRH) on elderly horses, Nicola covers it all. The episode also explores her baking escapades, her love for cars, and her work at the horse sanctuary.
