Arthur Tyther

Practice Owner & Veterinary Surgeon


Read Arthur Tyther bio

Hi I am Arthur your new Joint Venture Partner and veterinary surgeon for Newtownabbey. I grew up on a small farm in County Kerry, so as well as having dogs and cats as pets, I also had pet lambs (with inventive names such as Larry and Larry 2) as a child too. I qualified in 2003 as a vet from the University College Dublin. Since graduating I have only ever worked in small animal practice. Firstly Newry and Banbridge, I then worked in Norfolk for a year and a half, before settling in Carrickfergus for the last 8 and a half years. I live in Carrick with my wife Anna, and our three rescue cats, Connie, Bella and Francee. Outside of work I enjoy playing and supporting rugby, gardening, TV, and trying to surf! I love working closely with owners to find the best solution for them and their pets to keep them happy and healthy. I can’t wait to meet you all!

Veterinary Surgeon


Read Paul bio

Paul brings us to three vets as of Oct 21, which should help given an even better service with more hands on deck to mean we can spend more time on those cases and go slow in emotional times.

Paul interestingly only went back to study veterinary as a mature student to fulfill a lifelong ambition, and has now been working for 9 years as a veterinarian after a background in the care home sector.

Read Cathy bio

Cathy has nearly 14 years experience working in a veterinary clinic. She was working as a nursing assistant, went on to do her vet nurse training and passed with flying colours, and afterward also trained up nurses herself. Prior to that, it was working with horses in a riding school and a stud farm, so she's pretty much always been working with animals.


Outside of work she looks after and rides her horse, goes to the gym, she is involved with a whole bunch of clubs and voluntary organisations:- motorcycle club (particularly the charity ride outs), classic car club, race marshall, Red Cross ambulance and first aid teams ... and occasionally sleeps! "It's amazing what you can squeeze in once you've got the kids out of the house" At home she's got her German Shepherd Tara, cat Ace, and smallish rescue dog Bosen (aka Bosey Bear).
