Mel Bason - Veterinary Nurse

I'm Mel and I have had a lifelong passion for animals and their care. Growing up in rural Cambridge I have had an array of pets my entire life.

I graduated with a Certificate in Veterinary Nursing in 2010 and have been working in companion animal practice ever since.  I have recently moved back to a lifestyle block and have quite a menagerie which includes 4 dogs, 3 cats, sheep, cows, chickens and a pig.

Both dog behaviour and helping people understand their animals, aswell as providing them with products and advice is where my passion lies within my role as a veterinary nurse.

I am responsible for the social media for Bayfair and Papamoa Vets and do the odd casual shift.
