Our vet Steph has just returned from a three month sabbatical in Italy. She started down in Calabria and Sicily and made her way up the West coast by train as far as Lucca in Tuscany. After that she then WALKED around 500km back down to Rome on an ancient pilgrimage route called the Via Francigena. Here are some of the animals she met along the way.

Doctor Steph will be back at work soon and is looking forward to seeing you and your furry friends and telling you more about her travels.
