A young vet from Carlton has been shortlisted for a prestigious national award.
Kitty Ennett has made it through to the finals for National Vet Awards under the category Young Vet Recognition.
The winner of the award will be selected through a public vote and will be announced on November 3 at an awards ceremony at Athena in Leicester.
There are six other vets vying for the title – Kitty is the only one representing Nottingham.
The young veterinary surgeon is currently working at All Creatures practice in Radcliffe-on-Trent.
She told Gedling Eye: “It was such a nice surprise to find out I had been nominated for the national vet awards. Being a new graduate vet can be incredibly challenging (and a little terrifying!) as you transition from being a student to being a general practitioner.
“Seeing that people appreciate the work I do and the time I spend caring for their pets really helps me see that all the bad days and exams were worth it.
“I would like to say a huge thank you to whoever nominated me, veterinary is such a vocation, so to think that someone out there feels that I deserve recognition, is just absolutely incredible.
She added: “Caring for my patients comes with huge responsibilities and pressures, but it is completely worth it when you see a wagging tail.”
Voting closes on October 20.
