AN OPEN day is being held at Cromwell Veterinary Group, in St Johns Street, Huntingdon to show its work to the public and encourage people to think about veterinary nursing as a profession.
The surgery's 23 qualified, student and auxiliary nurses will be talking to people about what they do.
The day, to coincide with National Veterinary Nursing Day, will include competitions and prizes for the young, the young-at-heart and, of course, the four-legged.
There will also be the opportunity to see behind the scenes of the hospital, and for those considering a career in veterinary nursing, the team will be on hand to offer help and advice.

Senior nursing manager, Julie Eastham, said: "Being a veterinary nurse is a demanding but very fulfilling career and there is a way in for everyone. We've got people of all ages working here, some of whom have had successful careers in other professions before taking the plunge to train as a veterinary nurse.
"We hope that by coming and talking to our nurses, people will learn a little bit more about what we do and you never know, some may go away realising it's never to late to become a veterinary nurse."
