Dr. Matthew Boylan

Medical Director
Born, raised and trained in Ireland, I developed a passion for veterinary medicine at a young age through working and competing with horses (showjumping). Following graduation, I started as a mixed animal practitioner helping all creatures great and small – and I still hold this practice close to my heart and would happily work again as a mixed animal vet. From here I then worked as a locum emergency veterinarian, emergency veterinary surgeon and completed two advanced training programs in general small animal medicine, emergency medicine, anesthesia and surgery.

My main focus is client education to empower clients to make the best medical decisions for their loved ones, and my main areas of interest are in surgery and emergency care.

I share my life with my wife (also a veterinarian), a shoulder cat Sebastian (an indoor/outdoor orange boy) and my newest rescue, Chloe (a pug). I look forward to meeting you all at North Town to help you with your four-legged family members.

Community Parks and Dogs

End of school is here!  As a mum of two young boys, we live in our little park. Dogs pass through with their owners enjoying an evening walk, the kids are playing grounders and building sand castles, and the parents are unwinding from a hectic day at work and after-school activities.
