Dr Lara Clarkson

Practice Owner & Veterinary Surgeon


Read Dr Lara Clarkson bio

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.
