No need to check you know of James Herriot, right?
Just a refresh for perhaps the younger crowd😉… James Alfred ‘Alf’ Wight OBE, FRCVS, was a veterinary surgeon who used the pen name ‘James Herriot’! He worked briefly in Sunderland at a vets from 1940 but moved to Thirsk, Yorkshire, where he worked for the rest of his life. He wrote many publications to which one became a TV show.
The vet drama first appeared in the 1970s and now has a new look to coincide with the 50th anniversary of his first published book.📚
📺The series started on Tuesday 1st September and is shown every Tuesday at 9pm! Showing on Channel 5, previous episodes should be available to watch on demand.
The story line is based around newly-qualified vet James as he heads to work in a Yorkshire practice.
Here’s baby River to start your Monday with a smile.☺️

A new law meaning it is now mandatory for all horses, ponies and donkeys in England, Wales and Scotland to be micro-chipped.
It enables adequate tracking of owners of abandoned, lost or stolen horses. It will help reunite owners more easily, prevent abuse and improve welfare. If not chipped, you could face a fine up to £200.
‼️⭐️The deadline for England is 1st October 2020.⭐️‼️
Please contact our Large Animal Office team if you need your animal micro-chipping.📞
Is it a legal requirement for vets, farriers and auctions to check chips?? Surely that should be an essential part of the deal as it should be for dogs and cats? But sadly isn't.
Not all vets are as good as you all are. You are all the most caring people I know not only for the animals that come through your doors but the owners as well. That’s not just the vets it’s all the nurses, kennel staff, the ladies in reception and
the admin staff. Some are just out for the money. Even through covid you have been there for us in any situation never closing your doors been there for us in emergencies births and deaths. This is why I wouldn’t go anywhere else
