Julia Osborn

Veterinary Surgeon and Practice Partner

I opened the surgery in 2010, after qualifying from Bristol in 2000. I especially enjoy medical cases that aren’t straight forward. I have 3 children, 2 dogs, 2 cats, 2 love birds and in my spare time i play the trombone in a local brass band.

Lorraine McGowan

I registered in September 2012 and started at Huddersfield Vets 4 Pets in January 2016. I have worked with dogs, cats and exotics. I have 6 cats, 1 dog and a tortoise.

Amy Gunson

Senior Veterinary Nurse

I joined this team in January 2015, having qualified in 2013 and became the senior nurse a few months later. One of my roles is to train staff and the student nurses, to do this I attend a course. One of the most stressful times in practice is the emergency and critical care, so i try and keep up to date in these areas. At home I have two Labradors, three cats, a house rabbit and many tropical fish. I am involved in organising the Honley Show and try and support the local wildlife rescues and animal charities where I can.

Rachel Riley

Student Veterinary Nurse

I joined the Vets 4Pets family in 2012 as a receptionist. From there I have built myself up and now I am training as a veterinary nurse. I love working with animals and my Vets 4 Pets family. I have 1 cat named Annie. I love all things Disney and Harry Potter.

Holly Stead

Student Veterinary Nurse

I joined the practice family in December 2014 as work experience. Since then I have begun my journey to become a Registered Veterinary Nurse. I am a real cat person but love any animal that comes to visit and will never turn down a cuddle! I have 2 cats and also have a diploma in Animal Management.

Eve Danielson

Student Veterinary Nurse

I’m a student Veterinary Nurse and have worked here since April 2015. I own a Beagle named Ellie whom I re-homed at 9 months old. I also have two cats, Moh and Neeps, both of which were abandoned at different practices I’ve worked at. In my spare time I enjoy walking my dog especially in the Lake District. I also enjoy knitting and my yearly ski trips to France.

Harriett Betts

Student Veterinary Nurse

I’m a student Veterinary Nurse and joined the Vets4Pets family in May 2017 as a placement student. I’d say I’m a dog person but I love all animals no matter what species they are! I own a wonderful Golden Retriever called Honey. I look forward to qualifying as a Registered Veterinary Nurse in summer 2018!

Joe Macleod

Animal Care Assitant

I started as work experience in October 2015 helping out one day a week. I am now part of the team here at Vets 4 Pets as an Animal Care Assistant; I guess I must have done something right! I am hopefully going to go onto getting my nursing diploma and become fully qualified, having already graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Animal Management and Wildlife Conservation.

Angela Temple


I joined the practice in September 2012 as part of the reception team. I love meeting the owners and their furry friends. I have three cats and I love caring for all the hedgehogs who visit my garden every evening until they hibernate for the winter.
