Boost for Leeds pet owners as new £1.4m veterinary practice opens doors

A £1.4 million veterinary practice, which will serve thousands of pet owners across Leeds, will open its doors later this month.

Beechwood Veterinary Group is establishing a state-of-the-art facility at Temple House in Seacroft.

A spokesman said: “The additional operating space will enable Beechwood Vets to offer laparoscopy, or keyhole surgery, providing a minimally invasive alternative to a traditional spay surgery, as well as procedures like biopsies of the liver, kidneys and intestines.

“The practice will also have a dedicated room to provide a calm, quiet space for clients and their pets during difficult times, bringing comfort to owners whose pets are receiving end-of-life care.”

Funding for the expansion has been provided by VetPartners, a York-based veterinary group. The relocation will lead to the recruitment of new team members, including vets and nurses. Following the opening of the new practice, Beechwood’s previous sites at Crossgates, and Chapel Allerton will remain open as branch surgeries for routine healthcare, along with the other surgeries in Beeston and Garforth.

Beechwood Vets Clinical Director Louise Mallinson said: “We will be able to offer a much better service at the new practice as there is much more space for improved facilities and it will be much more comfortable for clients and patients.

“Having separate cat and dog facilities creates a much more relaxed and comforting space for patients, especially cats, and having on-site parking will be a huge bonus for our clients.”
