Leah McDonnell

Animal Care Assistant

Leah McDonnell
Leah McDonnell Animal Care Assistant

Leah joined the Allpets team in 2020 as an Animal Care Assistant after she obtained her bachelor of science degree in Equine Management from the college of Agriculture Food and Rural Enterprise. 

Her degree offered her some very hands on experience in relation to animal handling as well as assisting in the running of a breeding yard. Her dissertation looked at horse owner’s/manager’s knowledge and management of parasite burdens in horses. Leah also worked for 3 years in a pet grooming establishment where she gained a wealth of knowledge and experience in the care of dog, cat (and the occasional Guinea Pig!) coats.

Some of Leah’s many responsibilities in the hospital include, patient care, infection control and hygiene, care of our equipment and surgical instruments, some reception duties and assisting our Nurses and Vets wherever possible

Outside of work Leah loves horse riding and spending time with her sassy 20 year old cat Lucky who has taught Leah a lot about handling sassy cats!
