Anthony Wilkinson Vet, Director

Anthony Wilkinson

BVSc MSc MRCVS
Director

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.


Each time we walk through the surgery door at Friars Moor, we know that our pets are in the very best hands, and we feel that our pets deserve nothing less.
