This week the spotlight is on *drum roll*... Meg Richards, FdSc Registered Veterinary Nurse and canine hydrotherapist from Cornwall. Have you seen her in her Zesti scrubs yet? Go over and check her out on her Instagram, we’ll drop her handle at the end of the post. Her platform is an excellent resource for nursing tips, honest accounts of vet life, and of course, a lot of very cute pictures of pooches.

Let’s get to know her together…


Hi Meg, what do your friends call you?

My friends just call me Meg!


Where are you from? 



What makes you tick?

My passion for animals and their welfare. For me, it is all about giving the best of care. I love ECC (endocervical curettage) but my main passion is rehab and I am a qualified canine hydrotherapist as well as a vet nurse.

Hydrotherapy with Meg (We know what you’re thinking, what a job!)

What do you do when you’re not in your scrubs? 

I love reading, spending time with friends and family and walking my spaniel, Maisie, in my home county of Cornwall. We explore the best dog friendly places to stay, walk and eat over on my Instagram @spaniel.adventures


What did you have for dinner last night? 

Salmon, couscous and mixed veg. (I’m definitely not always that healthy!)


What is your main job role?

I am a rota nurse, covering medical and surgical nursing in a busy first opinion hospital. I will soon be offering rehab clinic appointments as I continue to progress through my NCert in Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation.


Why did you choose this career path? 

I actually was going to train to be a solicitor, but after my old spaniel, Millie, developed thrombocytopaenia and the team (at the practice I now work with) saved her life, I decided that a career in vet nursing was exactly what I wanted to do.

Do you have a pet? 

I have two cats, Alfie and Ralph, and of course, my crazy Sprocker Spaniel called Maisie!



If we gave you a plane ticket, where would you go? 


The Maldives - I am actually going next year to work with the Olive Ridley project and I cannot wait! It has been a dream of mine since I was little. 



We’ve adored working together with Meg on some content. We’d like to thank her for taking time out of her crazy schedule to tell us a bit about herself. Keep rocking those scrubs, Meg, you will forever be our Zesti Besti!


If you’d like to follow Meg on her online journey, here is her linktree where you can find webinars, view her etsy shop where you can buy revision notes and also follow her spaniel adventures blog! (It’s so adorable, make sure you check it out. You can clearly see why all the puppies love her.)
