Chloe Mackintosh AKA The Charity Vet Nurse



Chloe started as a student veterinary nurse in 2016, completing all her placements at the PDSA hospital in Edinburgh while working for Vets Now in the evenings! After moving around a bit, she realised she wanted to work in the charity sector of the veterinary profession, helping people and animals who otherwise wouldn’t have access to veterinary assistance.

Chloe was named Vet Nurse of the Year 2020 by pet charity Blue Cross and is currently the Head Nurse at the PDSA in Romford. She has just finished a BSc Top-Up degree in Veterinary Nursing and will be graduating very soon!

Chloe describes herself as extremely passionate about charity and shelter medicine and the feline population crisis. She also loves teaching and being a clinical coach as well as preventative medicine, running, good food and travel.
