Before becoming a vet, New Zealander Wendy McCulloch worked as a caterer for some of the biggest acts in music, including Tina Turner and the Rolling Stones.

Now based in New York, she's been offering home-based vet visits to city residents as the founder of HomeVetsNYC.

Her house calls have become even more complex and demanding during the Covid-19 outbreak in the city, especially as many of her clients are elderly or immuno-compromised.

She's also a board member of the South African wildlife charity, the Wild Tomorrow Fund.
