How do you get a semen sample from a Pomeranian? Sandra Lean-Leighton takes you through the back door of your local vet clinic. With true stories, she introduces you to feisty pet owners, quirky vets and loveable animals – and the veterinary technicians who look after them all.

Through the eyes of her caped alter-ego, SuperVet Tech, Sandra pays tribute to the unsung heroes of the veterinary world. “Vet techs are nurses for animals,” she says, “but so much more. We do x-rays, medications, lab analysis, small surgeries, owner counseling, you name it. The problem is no one knows who we are or what we do. I intend to change that.”

Combining her careers as a professional actor and a Registered Veterinary Technician, Sandra delights both theatre buffs and animal lovers alike. Her audiences are treated to original music and video, dramatic monologues, and hilarious scenarios.

This ground-breaking show is a first for the veterinary world and is not to be missed! Lilliput Productions in association with the Toronto Fringe Festival presents:
