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.

Following my interest in the sciences and family pets I qualified from the Glasgow University Veterinary School in 1999. After spending a few years in Newport Pagnell, I returned to the North in 2004 working in small animal practice in Lancashire. I have been with the Keighley Vets4Pets team from the opening in July 2013. I enjoy seeing all different types of pets when they are well and helping them if they are poorly as an all-round small animal general practitioner. The rest of my week is fully occupied by my little boy who loves being outside.

I have a particular interest in Internal medicine especially Feline medicine but enjoy the variety that general practice brings. I can be found at the surgery on Wednesdays and Thursdays while the rest of my week I spend with my daughter, Boxer dog and one-eyed cat.

I graduated in 2014 from the Royal Veterinary College, London and started working in Sussex following traveling South America. I went on to complete a clinical internship in small animal medicine and surgery through the University of Bristol in 2015-16 where I met my wife. During this time I won a BSAVA award for my clinical research and excellence. I have since worked in Bristol and in East Yorkshire before moving across to settle in the Dales with our GSD dog 'Lassie'. Outside of work I am training for a 43mile cross country run of Yorkshire and enjoy cooking.
