Anthony Wilkinson Vet, Director

Anthony Wilkinson


In 2016 he met up with the vets he qualified with, for a 35 year reunion. It does not seem that long!

Anthony joined the practice in 1990 and enjoys work tremendously! He spends time doing both pet work and farm work; he describes himself as the last of the dinosaurs! He lives locally and is active in the community; he is a member of the vegetable and flower show committee and is a primary school governor, though now retired from village pantomime. He is a keen gardener, specialising in profuse weed growth and competitive tomato growing (with the other vets) and is a keen cyclist, who enjoys making beer, cider and cheese. He annoys his family by practising his flute badly and many other things beside.

Anthony chairs a farm vet committee for XLVets, and delivers a short talk before each meeting, recent topics have included his work 30 years ago on tropical viral diseases of cattle. Involvement in XLVets helps keep the practice up with everything.

We all love our pets and, for 18 years, Friars Moor Veterinary Practice in Sturminster Newton has been giving me the confidence that I was doing the very best I could for mine.
