Georgina Nixon RVN
Georgina first started working in veterinary practice as a trainee veterinary nurse in 2002, she studied at Berkshire College of Agriculture and went on to qualify in 2004.
Georgina has worked in a busy first opinion, mixed practice for many years and then decided to take a break when an opportunity came up for her to travel abroad with her horse to focus on her dressage training in 2011.
After returning to the UK she continued to focus on training horses for clients and running yards, then in 2015 returned to nursing at an equine practice. Her main interests have always been poor performance and lameness issues. But she also loves diagnostic imaging and scoping, both endoscopy and gastroscopy. Another main interest is rehabilitation and how to work with horses following injury or surgery to get them back to full fitness.
Georgina has been working for Kieran at The Equine Dental Surgery since the beginning of 2021. Dentistry wasn’t really an area in which Georgina thought she would see herself heading, however the different cases continue to give her plenty of variety to her working week and has really been enjoying learning more whilst working alongside Kieran.
