My name is Anna and I’m 28 years old. I live with my family, two-legged and four-legged, in an old farmhouse.
Apart from our five horses living in the barn next to our house, we have two dogs, lots of cats and many guinea pigs.
Ever since I was a child I knew I wanted to work with animals. If someone asked me “What do you want to be when you grow up?“ My answers ranged from working at a vet, running a pet store and working at the zoo. I could not dream up a future without animals.
I became a certified veterinary nurse and worked at a practice in St. Ingbert (Tierarztpraxis am Wildpark) for four years, where I helped treat cats and dogs, calmed bunnies and guinea pigs during stressful treatments, and advised our human clients as well.
I went on to work at the animal shelter in Zweibrücken where I had the opportunity to meet and care for many different and exciting animals, even including wild ones like hedgehogs and raccoons.
All the while I attended advanced training sessions on topics such as healthy diets, dental care, common parasites and more. I would be happy to advise you!
