Meet the team

Elsa & David Massey

Veterinary Surgeons & Practice Partners


Read Elsa & David Massey bio

We both graduated from the Royal Veterinary College and following a short stint working in London we moved up to Yorkshire. David started working for Leeds Vets4Pets and Elsa in a multidisciplinary veterinary hospital. We left in late 2015 to travel the world visiting India, South East Asia and Australasia. After arriving back we both settled back into our jobs until our daughter joined us in January 2017. We became partners in Leeds Vets4Pets in November 2017 opening up Leeds Colton Vets4Pets in January 2018 alongside John, Hilary and Lauren. The time had definitely come for a new challenge and the opportunity to work alongside each other and the other partners seemed like the perfect antidote. David loves interacting with both clients and patients alike and carry interests in general surgery, ultrasound and physiotherapy into my job. He will be starting a surgical certificate in the near future to help in his daily work. Elsa has particular interests in dermatology and rabbit medicine so working with Pets at Home looking after their small furries has been particularly enjoyable. Out of work David finds sport a great release from the daily commute. He partakes in team sports and compete in triathlons against John (and others of course). Our canine buddy of many years Tiernan keeps him company on his training runs along with many walks in the great Yorkshire countryside. Elsa uses her time to practice Yoga, visit her friends and family and plan our next travels. The rest of our time is split between tearing around after our cat Worm and our highly active daughter.

We both qualified from Glasgow University in 2001. We initially worked on the Foot and Mouth Epidemic, based in Ripon, and then went into mixed practice near John's home town of Sudbury in Suffolk. After a year of this we decided to see the world and work as locum veterinary surgeons as we went. This gave us a wealth of experience, not only in challenging medical and surgical cases, but working with animals and people from many different walks of life. Looking after donkeys in Mexico, and stray dogs in Thailand certainly made us realize how privileged we are to have the standard of veterinary care that the United Kingdom can offer. We settled in Yorkshire in 2004, having fallen in love with the countryside and the people during our time helping farmers during the Foot and Mouth crisis. John became a partner in Wakefield Vets4Pets in 2006, and left to start up Leeds Vets4Pets in 2001. We both like all aspects of general practice and love the varied interaction with all of our patients and clients. However John's main interest is Surgery and he will be completing his Surgical Certificate over the next 3 years. It`s likely that if your pet needs a broken leg fixing it will be John that performs the operation. Hilary's main interest is medical work ups, especially complicated cases! At home, we enjoy family time with our 2 young boys, and our little black and white 12 year old crossbreed Mali (who you may see scamper in behind us when we come to work). After starting and growing Leeds Vets4Pets, we have expanded our family to cover East Leeds with Leeds Colton Vets4Pets where we will be seen but assist in a lot of the behind the scenes work.

Read Lauren Maxfield bio

I have worked at Leeds Vets4Pets since it opened in July 2001. I became a partner here and at Leeds Colton Vets4Pets in November 2017 assisting the other partners in growing the practice from the design stage through to the daily running of both practices. The best part of the job is nursing animals back to full health following their illnesses and surgeries. This allows me to build great relationships with clients and their pets. I have a particular interest in feline behavior and am currently working on my ISFM Diploma in Feline Medicine. 'At the moment, I have a sulky black & white moggy named Mrs Norris, a guinea pig named Bambi and a Labrador called Sammy.
