It is with great sadness that I announce that Louise O'Dwyer died at the age of 45 in her home on the evening of Sunday May 5th 2019.

Louise qualified as a veterinary nurse in 1999. She gained her surgical advanced nursing diploma in 2004 and medical advanced nursing diploma in 2007. She didn't stop there. While working as head nurse and Clinical Director at Petmedics Manchester, she went on to feed her love of education. She gained the Veterinary Technician Specialty in Emergency and Critical Care in 2011 and in Anaesthesia and Analgesia in 2015. In 2015, Louise joined Vets Now Manchester as Clinical Support Manager. For most people this would be a lifetime of achievements, but not for our Louise. She enrolled on an MSc in Anaesthesia and Analgesia in 2018 which was due to be completed in 2021. The eternal student — educating herself, so she could share her knowledge to educate her colleagues and peers.
