Dr Lara Clarkson BA VetMB MRCVS
Veterinary Surgeon and Surgery Owner
My name is Lara and I am the vet that owns and manages the surgery here at Keighley Vets4Pets. I live in Silsden with my husband, two children and our border terrier Emily. I always wanted to be a vet and to have my own vet surgery, and since childhood I have kept cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, gerbils, hamsters, chickens and I also bred budgies for many years.
I went to school in Skipton, studied Veterinary Medicine at Cambridge University, qualifying in 2006 and opened my Vets4Pets surgery here in 2013. I get great satisfaction from mending things, particularly in the operating theatre … but also outside of work with my toolbox doing DIY! I enjoy the outdoors, gardening, cooking and I’m a qualified gymnastics coach helping to train young gymnasts at a local club each week. I look forward to welcoming you and your pets to the surgery here at Keighley Vets4Pets.
