We are looking for a new owner to help take the practice through the next stages of growth and development

About the practice

Vets for Pets Wakefield is a well-established, stand-alone practice located amongst other retail units, with free parking right outside. It’s easily seen from the road and gains from the passing trade of the surrounding area. It is easily commutable, thanks to its proximity to the local A roads and M1 motorway.

The practice includes:

  • A spacious waiting area, with a separate cat waiting area
  • 3 generously-sized consulting rooms, which have easy access to the pharmacy and lab areas
  • A dedicated office with 3 desks

  • Separate dog and cat kennel rooms
  • Colleague rest area

"I am very happy with Horbury road, Wakefield surgery. That happy I have been coming for 17yrs and still using the same vets. Very knowledgeable. The value and quality about Vets for Pets is, I have the same vet doctor which is very important to me. They know your dog and you as a whole. It’s good to establish a good relationship with your vets and the team including the reception staff. I have not had one bad experience in the 17yrs I have been visiting the vets. That’s speaks volumes to myself. One very happy customer 😃"

"Very good receptionists. Clean waiting area complimented by an excellent and very informative Veterinary consultation and treatment. Have used this Practice before and I am pleased to say that they have not only maintained their standards, but have improved them. In the current Covid crisis this was a commendable experience and all within a very good pricing. Thank you."

"I love this practice and have never ever had a bad experience there, all my animals have been treat with the utmost respect by all your vets and team no matter how bleak the prognosis, loosing Minnie three years ago broke me and your guys did everything they could to explain to me letting her go was best as she was so poorly, Jess also as the beginning of this year after her stroke at 22 your entire team there made the transition and process as painless for us both as humanly possible, Poppy’s care has been exemplary and I have every faith in the advice and treatment I’ve been given for her current issue, I’d like to thank Pop for this and his advice moving forward, the whole team and staff at the practice from reception to the vets should be proud of their operation and the way they make us as customers, patients and owners alike feel. Thanks so much to Steven and the rest of the team."
