I qualified in July 2020 and have moved from my hometown in Shropshire to Malton in Yorkshire. I love all aspects of veterinary medicine but have a special interest in small animal surgery. At home I have two dogs, a loveable old border terrier called Nancy and a lively spaniel called Wispa. I love taking my dogs for walks, horse riding and baking.

Had to pop by while passing, surprised by the location which is on the edge of an industrial type estate, but as fans of the show it was great to see where Peter and his team are based.

what a fantastic veterinary centre, I had the biggest scare my ragdoll had delivered her kittens but was bleeding and it wouldn't stop. I rang our usual vet in Scarborough but they were closed and I was forwarded on to their out of hours which was Skeldale. Was advised to take her and she was seen immediately and you sorted her out. Can't thank them enough! Fantastic, Tallulah and her babies are doing beautifully

We called in to ask if Peter would sign "The Yorkshire Vet" book for me, which he did.Covid restrictions did not allow me to see Peter, which was a pity. One of his friendly staff took the book into the surgery. I were reet chuffed, Did not mention i was fray Lancashire 😅.

After worrying all day that my cat would be scared as she has never been in a kennel at a vets or even a cattery, she came home relaxed and happy! The staff have taken very good care of her and it shows. They are also very friendly, polite, and helpful! I can’t recommend Skeldale enough!

The staff are always so helpful and you always get an excellent level of service! They can’t be more helpful and the prices are super! The staff care more about the animals than having your eyes out! I always recommend them to everyone! Yes it is a drive from Hartlepool but totally worth it!
