Senior Veterinary Surgeon & Practice Owner

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 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. I became a partner and owner of the practice in May 2021. I thoroughly enjoy leading our wonderful team and I am extremely proud of the excellent service and high quality of care we provide to both our clients and our patients.

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

Senior Veterinary Surgeon & Practice Owner

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.

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.

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.

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!

Hi, I’m Liam. I qualified as an Veterinary Nurse in 2019. I started working in veterinary in 2014 as a Veterinary Care Assistant, since then I have worked at various practices varying from 1st opinion to out of hours emergency work in a veterinary hospital. I joined Vets4Pets Brighouse in August 2021.

My main area of interest is surgery and anaesthesia, as well as exotics. I have a particular interest in schedule 3 procedures and hope to expand on this in the future.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family and running around after the kids and the dog. I also like to unwind with playing guitar, gaming, rally and martial arts.

I look forward to meeting you and your pets soon!

Hi, I’m Charlotte and I joined Vets4Pets Brighouse in September 2021.  I previously worked as a VCA at an independent practice for two years. I have always wanted to work with animals and would love to further myself in this career by training to be a veterinary nurse.

When I’m not working, I’m kept very busy with my pets, especially my two Rottweilers who I love to take on long walks. I also love reading, seeing my friends and family, and going on holidays.

Hi, I’m Alice, one of the receptionists. I started working for Vets4pets in September 2020 at the Birstall branch. I’ve been at Brighouse Vets4Pets since April 2021.

After spending 4 years living in Dubai I came home to be back with my family and my animals on our farm. I love dogs more than anything. I have 4 but would happily have 400! I currently have 2 German Shorthaired Pointers, a one eyed Jack Russell and a naughty French bulldog. Along with 2 donkeys, 2 ferrets and a flock of pigeons.

When I’m not working I spend most of my time taking my dogs for long walks around Yorkshire or at the gym.

This includes a lab, pharmacy, digital X-ray (including dental X-ray), ultrasound, surgical theatre (where we perform advanced orthopaedic and soft tissue surgeries as well as routine operations).
