Mr Mike Rimmer
Mrs Pamela T Cartwright
I graduated from the University of Liverpool in 1986. I worked in mixed practices in Lancashire for 12 years, during which time I took an 18 month break to sail around the world. Back on dry land, I spent 14 years working for the Veterinary Laboratories Agency in Defra, which involved laboratory work and pathology of farm livestock and, occasionally, zoo animals. I joined Town & Country Vets in May 2014, working part time. In my spare time I help out on the family farm, and enjoy cycling in the local area.

'Hello, I'm Natasha and I graduated from Bristol Vet School in July 2013. I soon returned back home to Lancashire where I have been practicing for the past 18 months. My particular interest is veterinary ophthalmology, and I am keen to pursue further qualifications within this area. I share my home with 2 feline friends: Ruby the neurotic rescue cat, and Peggy who has three legs but a big heart and loves sucking ears! When I'm not busy vetting I enjoy running and horse riding, and use Pilates to relax and unwind. I look forward to seeing you and your furry family member soon!'
