Vets4Pets Bradford Idle was originally Vets4Pets Eccleshill, but when our landlord refused to renew our lease we moved to brand new premises inside Pets at Home in March 2017.  It’s the same great team, with a few new faces to cover our extended opening hours. We are now open 7 days a week.

It’s run by local vet and mum of two, Tamsin Chance, and between our staff we have over 100 years of clinical experience!

Tamsin Chance MRCVS and Francesca Connolly MRCVS are both holders of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons Certificate in Small Animal Surgery (CertSAS) and run a dedicated surgical service. They also accept referrals from other practices. Marta Valtorta MRCVS has 10 years experience and especially enjoys consulting, getting to know the clients and patients very quickly. She is an Official Veterinary Surgeon which means she can issue passports and arrange export certificates. Emily Taylor MRCVS is our resident crazy cat lady and particularly enjoys complex medical cases. Our popular and friendly practice manager, Tracy Watson, is a familiar face having worked at the practice for over 11 years. Our 4 qualified Registered Veterinary Nurses have  a wide range of interests and experience, including weight clinics,  anaesthesia, exotics and wildlife, and emergency medicine and surgery.
