Keith Leonard

Practice Owner & Senior Veterinary Surgeon

Read Keith Leonard bio

I’m Keith, the youngest of four sons, all of which are currently practicing vets, as is my father but who will be soon retiring. I grew up in Cheshire and qualified from Liverpool University in 1997. After a period of small and large animal practice I started full time small animal work in 1999 and have worked all over the UK since. In 2006 my wife Julie and I travelled across Africa and our first son Ollie was born in South Africa. After returning to the UK in 2009 and working in several large practices in West Yorkshire, both Julie and myself fell in love with the countryside and people of this region and decided at once to set up home, expand our family (Ollie, Amelia and Charlie) and start our own veterinary practice inside Pets at Home, Birstall. We then opened the Brighouse practice in late 2016. I love all aspects of my veterinary work, and have a particular interest in orthopaedic surgery, completing my Certificate in Small Animal Surgery in 2015.

Senior Veterinary Surgeon

Hi I’m Caroline. I joined the team at Vets4Pets Brighouse in September 2019, having worked at my previous small animal practice since I graduated as a vet in 2006. I enjoy all aspects of my job but have a passion for surgery, both soft tissue and orthopaedic, and this led me to complete the RCVS Certificate in Advanced Veterinary Practice (Small Animal Surgery) in 2013. I made the decision to move practices and join the lovely team here at Brighouse not only because I wanted to take on a new challenge and progress in my career, but I was also excited to be involved in the continued growth and development of this fantastic Vets4Pets practice.

When I’m not working, the majority of my time is spent looking after my two wonderful little girls, and enjoying all that family life has to offer!

Hi, my name is Francesca and I work as a Veterinary Surgeon at the Brighouse practice.
I graduated in Italy in 2016, and moved to West Yorkshire soon after that. I joined the Brighouse team in 2018, after working in a busy first opinion practice in Lincolnshire.
I’m particularly passionate about Behavioural Medicine and stress-free medical procedures, and I’ve obtained an MsC with distinction in Clinical Animal Behaviour from the University of Lincoln. I started learning about dog behaviour more than 10 years ago, and before graduating as a Vet I used to work as a dog trainer.
In my spare time I love walking in the countryside with my two dogs, photography and travelling.

Hi, I'm Alice. I graduated from the RVC in 2013, and then worked in a small animal practice in West Yorkshire for 5 years doing both first opinion practice and emergency out of hours work. After that I spent some time locuming in the area, before joining the team at Brighouse in October 2019.

My main interests revolve around emergency medicine and surgery. I also have recently started to perform veterinary acupuncture, which can be used in a lot of different cases, and is particularly useful in long term pain management.

Outside of work I have two dogs, a cat, and a growing flock of chickens which keep me very busy!

Hi my name is Jayne, I qualified as an RVN in 1995.
Since then I have worked in companion animal practice - spending over 20 years as Head Nurse in one practice before deciding it was time for a new challenge.
I began locum work and after working with the Brighouse team I opted to stay and take a permanent  position here. They are such a lovely team I could not bare to leave !
Outside work my main interest is my Irish Water Spaniel, Murphy. He keeps me busy and is always entertaining.

Veterinary Nurse

Hi, I'm Hazel. As a child, my love of animals predicted that one day I would work with them, to my surprise it would be as a veterinary nurse.

I started my training in 2016 at an independent practice and attended The College of Animal Welfare for 2 years and qualified in 2018 at the rip old age of 18/19, and it is fair to say that I have loved every moment. The variety of clinical cases, array of lovely patients and the emotional rollercoaster that this career brings certainly provides a fantastic feeling of job satisfaction.

At work I love pretty much all aspects of the job, even the gross and grubby bits! However I do like consults and I have a soft spot for misunderstood pudda cats!

I joined Brighouse in April 2019 and am loving working with a larger (brilliant) team and experiencing more advanced surgeries and meeting all your furry friends!

Outside of work I have a bicycle and motorbike obsessed partner and 3 cats - Tinky my 5 year old mischievous boy, Smokey my 13 year old 3 legged resuce and my newest edition, Izabelle a 13 year old fiesty Tortoiseshell.

I enjoy walking, cycling and working out. But I mostly enjoy watching movies, whilst indulging in a big fat takeaway!

Veterinary Care Assistant

Read Katie Lee bio

Hello, my name is Katie and I am the full time veterinary care assistant at Vets4pets Brighouse.

I previously worked at Pets at Home before joining the Vets4pets team in June 2018 as a client co-ordinator. On joining the Brighouse team I decided I wanted to be part of the clinical team so I trained to be a VCA through The College of Animal Welfare.

I have a keen interest in the nursing care of small animals, especially rabbits. In my spare time I enjoy spending time outdoors, especially hiking and spending time with my family.

I have a lovely Jack Russell terrier who I rescued and named Mavis. She often spends the day at the practice, you may meet her sometime!

I live with my partner and our 4 dogs, 3 cats, 2 rabbits and 3 guinea pigs. Out of work I love spending time with our grandchildren. I also enjoy sport, especially rugby league and support Bradford Bulls.
