When you go to the vets you should feel welcome. You should sit in a comfortable chair with a warm cup of coffee and have a chat, or when you need it, a hug. Your pet should have a tasty treat and a pat on the head. Neither of you should feel rushed or hurried or uncomfortable. When I started The Harrogate Vet it was this simple vision that I was aiming for.

I didn’t create The Harrogate Vet to be just like any other practice. We do things differently. We are passionate about what we do, and are proud to do it well.

We are a small team, but we care about every pet and every owner that steps through our door or rings our phone. We will be here for you when your pet is sick. And when your pet is healthy, we will help you keep them healthy.

Over the years, with incredible support from the pets (and people) of Harrogate, the practice has flourished. With this support behind us we have been able to expand our services and to realise our dream of offering our own emergency, out of hours service for our patients.

As well as our original Leeds Road site, we now have a clinic on Ripon Way, Harrogate. Here you will find the same warm welcome, comfortable environment and reassuring smile you have grown used to at Leeds Road.




If you have a question or need some advice (or just fancy a chat) we are always happy to talk. We also like to write so have put some information about common illnesses and procedures here for you to read at your leisure. If you think of something that you would like us to write about, feel free to let us know!
