James Ryder BVSc CertAVP MRCVS
James graduated from Bristol University in 2012, and worked in mixed practice in Worcestershire for 18 months before making the move to Garston Farm Vets in Frome to become a farm animal vet. James enjoys the day-to-day variation of being a farm vet out and about and has a keen interest in bovine fertility (embryo transfer in particular), as well as lameness treatment and prevention. James has completed a Certificate in Advanced Veterinary Practice and is working towards his Diploma in Bovine Reproduction at Liverpool University. He became a partner in 2019 having settled down in the area with his wife Amy, an equine vet at the practice, and their 1-year-old son, Felix. He can often be seen accompanied on his rounds by his yellow labrador, Pickles. Outside of work, James is a keen Bath rugby fan and cyclist and gets out on his bike as often as he can.
