Covid-19 Update – 2021

Given the latest lockdown restrictions and government and RCVS advice to reduce non-essential travel and contacts, we are currently having to reduce some of the services we offer.

We are still here 24 hours a day to see our registered client’s sick and injured pets.

We are working hard to try and maintain our high quality and efficient service but please be aware that waiting times for appointments, repeat prescriptions, and for telephone reports are likely to be increased. This is due to the time-consuming procedures we have to follow between consultations to keep staff and clients safe. In addition, we are often working with reduced staff numbers, often at short-notice as staff self-isolate due to Covid. We understand that this may be frustrating, but our staff are here to help, and aggressive behaviour or verbal abuse will not be tolerated.

Thank you again for your support and please stay safe.

Director/ Small Animal Vet/ Dermatologist


Having spent most of my childhood messing around with the various animals at the small mixed beef and sheep farm that backed on to my house in the suburbs of Manchester, I was fortunate to get a place to study veterinary medicine at Cambridge University and fulfil my lifelong ambition to be a vet.

I joined Dimples Veterinary practice as an assistant in 1993, working mainly on the farm side. From 1997, I worked for seven years at Blackpool PDSA where I gained experience in all aspects of small animal medicine and surgery and obtained my RCVS certificate in Veterinary Dermatology.

After having my children I returned to Dimples (prior to the merger with Pearson, Thompson and Callery to form Lanes Vets) part-time as a small animal vet and dermatologist in 2004, while also working as a visiting veterinary dermatologist in a large practice in West Yorkshire.

I was very honoured to join the management team of Lanes Vets as a director in June 2014.

My main passion is for medicine especially anything to do with skin – the scabbier the better! I get very excited when I find unusual parasites under the microscope… I have been known to do cartwheels round the practice when finding scabies mites!

I am a member of the British Veterinary Dermatological Study Group and have been involved in giving talks to other members of the profession on the subject of veterinary dermatology.

I have two teenage children; 2 mad black Labradors; 2 cats (one laid back, the other a pyscho-cat!), 3 pygmy goats, 5 chickens and 3 fish.

When not spending time with my animals, husband and children (taxi service for hockey, cricket and football), I love socialising with my friends, cooking (and eating!), attempting to keep fit and trying to do Pilates!
