Julia James – MA VetMB MRCVS

Hi, I’m Julia James and I am a Senior Partner at Larkmead, as well as a Large Animal Vet. During my studies at Cambridge in 1996, I joined Larkmead as a student and shortly afterwards came on board full time following my graduation. I specialise in the large animal area of the practice working with a large variety of animals and clients on a daily basis.

The best thing about my job is the clients. Spending time with them on their yards, trying to look after the health and welfare of their horses to benefit them and their business as well and having a good catch up.

When working with an equine client it’s great to hear all their news and what they have been doing with their lovely horses. Helping them through the ups and downs of looking after a horse and being there for them, sadly, at the end.

At home I have a cat, Ted, and enjoy running, swimming – especially in the lake, and triathlons every so often.
