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!

Read Rebekah bio

Rebekah has been working as a vet for three years. Interestingly she has known Arthur since she was a teenager doing work experience and is excited to work with him and the team at Vets4Pets Newtownabbey.

Community spirit is an important part of Rebekah's life, currently she is getting stuck into the Gleno Valley Young Farmers Club.

On her evenings off she can be found riding her horse, gardening or getting roped into helping out on her partner's family farm.


Veterinary Nurse

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).


Student Veterinary Nurse

Read Chelsea bio

Chelsea has been part of the team from close to the opening, initially working Sundays on reception whilst doing the animal Management course at Newtownabbey NRC before progressing to full-time receptionist.


Last year she completed the animal nursing assistant course, and this September 2018 she moves another step on by starting the veterinary nurse course at Greenmount. you'll still find her at reception plenty, ably assisted by her Customer Experience Enhancement Officers Wesley and Dylan.



Read Sandra bio

Our receptionist Sandra has been deeply involved in the world of pets for many many years. She worked in Jollies, before moving to Pets At Home Newtownabbey, Then PAH Belfast, and then moved into the reception post here at Vets4Pets. She's been breeding and showing dogs for a long time, visits Crufts regularly and has run dog training groups on and off. She does like to point out she only breeds the Retrievers and only at a gentle pace to keep the Havergrove line going, not all the animals! She owns that many pets - from her assistant Megan of course, to cats, the retrievers, to Newfoundlands, and a rescued tortoise name Mildred she has to take off her shoes to count them all! The numbers have swelled before Christmas to include 4 lovely puppies who are all doing fine.



Read Christine bio

Christine has almost 15 years of experience working in a veterinary clinic. She initially worked as a veterinary receptionist/nursing assistant until she left to raise her family of three boys and one girl, before returning to the same job almost 20 years later once they'd all reached school age.

Christine takes care of our reception and also does some administration and account management


At home, Christine has Cocoa the cat. She likes sewing, knitting, cooking and gardening.
