Our aim as a practice is to be recognised by our community as the best local small animal veterinary provider and the first place to go for all their pets’ health, welfare, advisory and nutritional needs.

Our mission at Holmefield Vets is to deliver professional veterinary care that pets would choose for themselves at our surgeries in both Brayton and Sherburn-in-Elmet. Our priority is not only to provide them with complete diagnostics and treatment when they are ill but also to offer the best preventative health advice at all life stages. Members of our veterinary and nursing teams will be available around the clock 365 days a year to provide emergency treatment within our own clinics.

We also believe that our treatment of our clients is of equal importance. All members of our 26 strong team of experienced vets, qualified and trainee nurses, reception and administration staff will endeavor to build a strong trusted relationship with them. Using clear communication we will help our clients make the right decisions based on the principles of ‘best practice’ veterinary care. Through this positive partnership we will meet their expectations but aspire to exceed them.
