Cert IV Vet Nursing (Distinction)
Equine Veterinary Nurse
Chances are if you have visited CEC in the last 13 years, you’ve met vet nurse extraordinaire Lou Clarke. Lou’s nursing experience and skills are undoubtedly exceptional but being a CEC nurse has two vital roles. Not only do our nurses provide veterinary care and support, but they also offer guidance to our final year students. Their expertise are held in the highest regard, as they help teach essential skills such as horse handling, administering medication, conducting a physical examination, record finding and much more.
Lou has had a passion for horses since an early age. She joined the team at the Camden Equine Centre in January 2008 as an equine nurse. She has both a Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing (distinction) and a Certificate III in Equine Nursing. Prior to this Lou trained Arabian horses in the Middle East for the opening ceremony of the Asian Games 2006. She has also pre-trained thoroughbreds for the racing industry. Lou is an avid event rider and currently owns five horses, Sparrow, Zazu, Orca, Nyala and Dharma. She also has four dogs, Lily, Poppy, Peggy, and everyone’s favourite, Odie! Lou also shows and breeds miniature fox terriers.
