After a brief spell working in the Yorkshire Dales he returned as a partner in the Holroyd Veterinary Practice. Along with Pam Cartwright he established the Town and Country Veterinary Group in 1999. From 2003, Mike has specialised in companion animal medicine and surgery.

Mr Mike Rimmer

Clinical Director


Mrs Pamela T Cartwright

Veterinary Associate



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.

Mrs Kate Whitaker


Veterinary Associate

'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, I am currently studying for a certificate in this with the BSAVA. 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!'
