Caitriona Higgins

Veterinary Nurse

Caitriona joined Palmerstown Veterinary Hospital in July 2011. She has been working as a veterinary nurse since 2002. Caitriona always had a passion to work with animals while growing up.

Her career started in Scotland in 2002 where she joined her first veterinary practice and since then she has been working in Ireland since 2004 in small animal practices all around the country but mainly in Dublin area. She achieved an award for Highly Commended Veterinary Nurse in association with Stronghold pet awards in 2007.

Caitriona has a retriever named Archie and his incredible good nature has led him to work as a therapy dog with kids who have autism and also in a nursing home. Caitriona feels that Archie has had such a strong impact as a therapy dog and would like to encourage anyone who has a good natured dog to participate with Irish therapy dogs.
