Read John Davies Riand bio

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 2010. 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). Leeds started with just Lauren (now head nurse), Lesa and John, with Hilary covering Saturday mornings. Now we are a flourishing 5 vet, 6 nurse, 3 receptionist family run practice and we will always endeavor to provide the best Veterinary care in Leeds. And yes Lauren, Lesa and little old us are still here, just now joined by our ever expanding veterinary family.

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 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. I currently have no pets at home but thousands when I come to work. My spare time is for family and friends and I also love movies, reading, knitting and on occasions, baking.

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.

Vets4Pets Leeds is committed to bringing you affordable, high quality care via a modern, well equipped practice, including a lab, pharmacy, digital x-ray and ultrasound. Plus, on site car parking too!

The friendly team can't wait to meet all of their new clients!
