Vets

Chris Hewison

ChrisAfter completing his studies in London's Royal Veterinary College in 1995 Chris took up the vacancy with the practice. Since moving to the area Chris and his wife Caroline have settled near Ripponden with their four flat-coated retrievers. Caroline is also a vet and works in this practice.

Chris is the practice 'webmaster' and his main areas of interest are knee surgery and radiology.

When not at work Chris & Caroline enjoy the Pennine countryside and working with their dogs - and what better way to combine the two than to walk The Pennine Way, an ambition fulfilled in 2000. Other long distance walks completed more recently include the Cumbria Way and the Inca Trail, in the Peruvian Andes

Caroline Hewison

Caroline graduated from the Royal Veterinary College, London in 1995 and joined the practice in 1999 - working part-time. She mainly works at the Elland branch with her husband Chris and also does occasional surgeries at all our other branches. They have four flat-coated retrievers, a chicken and few pond fish.

Caroline's hobbies include walking, cycling and gundog training and showing.

Veterinary Nurses

Dinah Boylan

DinahMy career with Holborow and Tapsfield (now West Mount Vets) began in 1987 at the Gibbet Street surgery which evokes some lovely memories. 

I was fortunate to be involved in the practice development with the opening of Elland and then Paddock surgery, and then the move and expansion to our  premises in 1997 at Pellon Lane which was an exciting move forward.

I began my Veterinary Nursing training at Myerscough College, Preston in 1996 where I was the oldest student but fortunately qualified in 2000.

I have worked at the Halifax, Paddock and Hebden Bridge surgeries before moving to work nearer home at the Elland surgery in 2005 where I feel very "at home".

I have taken further courses in physiotherapy, animal behaviour, pet nutrition, dentistry and have enjoyed been able to attend veterinary congress the most memorable being The World Veterinary Congress in Orlando, Florida.

I have a German Shepherd Dog 'Darby' - who keeps me on my toes and a ginger cat 'Darcy' who has a the unfortunate reputation of being a good hunter, despite a large noisy bell!

Laura Tyers

I qualified as a Veterinary Nurse in summer 2011 after studying for 3 years at Myerscough College in Preston. I did my work-based training at the Halifax surgery and since qualifying have worked at the Paddock surgery. Dinah

I currently work full time at the Elland branch. I enjoy all aspects of nursing but I have a particular interest in the minor procedures that VN’s are trained to perform such as suturing. These are skills which I hope to develop in the years to come.

I live in Huddersfield with my boyfriend and our dog Flo. As a rescue dog Flo has had a shaky start in life but since coming to us in November 2012 she has made herself right at home. She has progressed into a bubbly little character that has a tennis ball obsession.

I also own two horses which live together at my mum’s house and they are the best of friends. Tigger is a mischievous Irish Thoroughbred and Murphy is a laid-back Cob who lives to eat. My main hobbies are horse riding and all things crafty, ranging from card making to cake decorating.

How to find us

The surgery is a short walk from Elland centre.

From the A629 Elland by-pass take the Elland junction and follow the Elland-Riorges Link road, go through one roundabout and at the second roundabout (by the Co-op supermarket) take the third exit onto Southgate. Turn left on Elizabeth St beside the Golden Dragon Chinese Restaurant. West Mount Vets is 100 yards on the left.
