Sven originally ran a small Wildlife RehabilitationUnit for a number of years. He started his Veterinary Nursing career at a busy practice/referral centre in Nottingham before working his way back to the Devon coast. He is very passionate about animal welfare and continues to be involved in wildlife rehabilitation to a lesser degree. In his spare time, he enjoys coastal running, cycling and other outdoor activities. His pets include a cat called Pucifer and a mouse called Cheesers who was hand-reared as an orphan. Sven always has the odd pigeon, seagull and hedgehog in his care, being rehabilitated for release back to the wild.
