I qualified from Glasgow University in 2001. I initially worked on the Foot and Mouth Epidemic, based in Ripon, and then went into mixed practice near my home town of Sudbury in Suffolk. After a year of this Hilary and I 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 realise 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. I became a partner in Wakefield Vets4Pets in 2006, and left to start up Leeds Vets4Pets in 2010. I like all aspects of general practice and love the varied interaction with all of our patients and clients. My 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 me that performs the operation. At home, I 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 me when I 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.

I graduated from the Royal Veterinary College and following a short stint working in London moved up to Yorkshire. I started working for Leeds Vets4Pets in 2010 leaving in late 2015 to travel the world visiting India, South East Asia and Australasia. After arriving back I settled back into UK life until our daughter joined us in January 2017. Elsa and myself 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. I love interacting with both clients and patients alike and carry interests in general surgery, ultrasound and physiotherapy into my job. I will be starting a surgical certificate in the near future to help in his daily work. Out of work I find sport a great release from the daily commute. I partake in team sports and compete in triathlons against John (and others of course). Our canine buddy of many years Tiernan keeps me company on my training runs along with many walks in the great Yorkshire countryside. The rest of my time is split between tearing around after our cats Worm and Maureen and our highly active daughter and new son.

I graduated from the Royal Veterinary College and following a short stint working in London we moved up to Yorkshire starting in a multidisciplinary veterinary hospital. I became partner 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.  I have particular interests in dermatology and rabbit medicine so working with Pets at Home looking after their small furries has been particularly enjoyable. I use my time outside of work to practice Yoga, visit my friends and family and plan our next travels. The rest of my time is split between tearing around after our cats Worm and Maureen and our highly active daughter and new son.

I qualified from Liverpool University in 2001. Initially I worked in mixed practice treating "All Creatures Great and Small" including dairy cows, sheep, dogs, cats and horse. After two years I decided to focus down my clinical work to small animals so I could improve my knowledge and skills in one area. In 2010 I decided to further my study and attained the Certificate in Small Animal Surgery. Having worked at various practices in the Yorkshire area I joined Vets4Pets Leeds In November 2015 as a locum vet. I enjoyed working here so much I decided to make it my permanent home! My main clinical interests are surgery, particularly soft tissue surgery, ultrasound and ophthalmology. I also enjoy the challenge and rewards getting to bottom of those tricky cases and seeing my patients recover and the joy this gives to their owners. I enjoy the type of travelling that broadens the mind and have volunteered as a visiting veterinarian at both WVS India training centre for vets in surgery and at a Peruvian rescue centre for street dogs. Out of work my hobbies include walking (sometimes long distances!), running, cooking, Spanish and meditation.

I graduated from the University of Bristol in 1996, having also obtained a degree in Pharmacology. I then worked in mixed practice for five year before spending a year working and travelling in Australia – where I loved being involved in treating the native wildlife. In 2002 I moved to Leeds with my husband Fergus, and have worked for small animal practices and charities in Yorkshire ever since. My particular areas of interest are ophthalmology, emergency and critical care, animal welfare education, and rabbit and small mammal medicine. I have two school aged children (Anna and Archie), two dogs (Jimmy the Jack Russell and Alvin the bull lurcher), two gerbils and a goldfish! In my spare time I like walking my dogs, playing the cornet, socialising and reading.

I have worked at Leeds Vets4Pets since it opened in July 2010. 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.

My career with animals started within a grooming and boarding establishment whilst completing an Animal Care apprenticeship and training as a professional dog groomer. From being young I had always wanted to be a veterinary nurse, so I begun working for Vets4Pets in 2013 as a Student Veterinary Nurse and qualified as a Registered Veterinary Nurse in 2015, from there I continued my studies and have just gained my Certificate of Veterinary Nursing in Emergency and Critical care. I enjoyed the varied days that come with being a nurse, and experiencing different cases we get every day. At home I have a 1 year old cat called Benny T and I enjoy reading, sewing and attending music events.

I have worked in the veterinary industry since 2014 and qualified as a Registered Veterinary Nurse in 2019.

From a young age I knew I wanted to work with animals, and so gained experience in many different establishments, including a zoo, wildlife rescue centre and veterinary referrals laboratory. During my nursing studies I volunteered with elephants in Thailand, providing veterinary care to help with their rescue and rehabilitation. I plan to use my nursing qualification to help at more animal charities in the UK and abroad.

I love meeting everyone’s pets, especially cats and small furries. I have owned cats throughout my life, as well as rabbits, guinea pigs and hamsters. One day I hope to own a Dalmatian.

I am a dedicated ballerina and can often be found surfing in the freezing North Sea at the weekend.

I started working for Leeds Vet4Pets in September 2017 when I started my course in Veterinary Nursing at Askham Bryan College. I love my job and no day is the same. My career with animals started whilst volunteering at the RSPCA as an Animal Care Assistant and working as a Veterinary Care Assistant in a mixed veterinary practice.

I am passionate and enjoy all aspects of veterinary nursing and also have a keen interest in canine behaviour. Currently I own a cheeky black cat called Loki and two Labradors called Odin and Phoenix.

In my free time I do scent work classes with the dogs and enjoy finding new walks with them in the Dales. I am also a keen musician playing the clarinet, saxophone and am learning the piano as well.

I started working for Vets4Pets in July 2010 when we opened. I previously worked for a bank in their call centre, this job is so much better.

With a passion for animals and a particular interest in conservation, I left my career in the tourism industry in Cornwall, and in 2010 completed a National Diploma in Animal Management at Bridgwater College in Somerset. Since returning to Leeds I’ve been an active volunteer at Dogs Trust, and love helping out on their fundraising days. I started working for Leeds Vets4Pets in May 2017 and really enjoy it. No day is ever the same and seeing pets go home happy and healthy is really rewarding. In my spare time I enjoy walking, swimming, travelling (especially New Zealand), attending music events and cake decorating in which I have won several international awards. Not forgetting spending time with my gorgeous cat, Bella.

I started working as a receptionist for Vets4Pets in November 2019 after previously working in the RSPCA national control centre. Everyone here clearly works in an industry that is passionate to them, with both animals and their humans at the heart of everything. It's a pleasure to join such an accommodating team, and the perks of cuddling everyone's pets is pretty great too! When I'm not at work, I spend my time on computer/board games, playing musical instruments, or being the entertainment for my two young cats: Luna and Yuki!

We would like to extend a very warm welcome from our family run veterinary practice to you, your pets, and your family.  We are very pleased to be given the opportunity to assist you with any advice, support and veterinary treatment that your pets may require and we hope to build a long and fruitful relationship with you and your pets.

Although we are here to provide care to sick and injured pets, we would like to emphasise that we see keeping healthy pets healthy, as an equally, if not more, important role as a veterinary practice.

We offer a modern, air-conditioned, clean and well equipped practice with extremely knowledgeable and friendly staff with a wealth of experience. The practice is purpose-built to provide state of the art veterinary care for your pets. Appointments with veterinary surgeons and nurses are available throughout the day for your convenience and we endeavour to keep these running to time.  Outside of our normal working hours our clients have access to a dedicated veterinary emergency service which is continually manned by both veterinary surgeons and nurses.

We are very proud of our family-run practice that opened in July 2010 and we hope it was apparent from your first visit or phone call to our clinic how highly we value our relationships with both owners and their pets, and the high standards of quality care that our patients receive.

Although the delivery of high quality veterinary care can be costly, we endeavour to maintain reasonable and competitive prices, and we have several promotions throughout the year which provide you with opportunities to get even more value for your money.

We look forward to taking care of your pets in the future.

EVERY DAY 9AM - 7PM
