Julian has been working in mixed practice in rural North Yorkshire for the majority of his twenty-one years as a vet, much of this in the market town of Thirsk, made famous by James Herriot and his books. During this time, he has seen many varied cases, unusual animals great and small and has met and become friends with a huge mixture of fascinating farmers and pet owners. In 2015, Julian became involved with the hit TV series The Yorkshire Vet, which continues to be a popular Channel 5 programme. He contributes a weekly column to The Country Week section of The Yorkshire Post, documenting his weekly veterinary anecdotes. Julian currently works in the market town of Boroughbridge, continuing his passion for independent mixed practice, where he works with his wife, Anne who is also a vet.
