We have three branches across Leicester which means you’re always within reach of impeccable veterinary attention. Our teams at Leicester Forest East, London Road and Wigston are all dedicated, enthusiastic animal lovers. They each work tirelessly to provide an indisputable service, and will give you all the information you require to provide the best possible life for your pet.

Two of our branches have operating theatres that allow us to surgically treat your animal should they need it. We have an extensive range of diagnostic, surgical and dental equipment as well as facilities to carry out cryosurgery and laser therapy.

David Bentley, one of the practice directors, is a RCVS Certificate holder in dermatology. David runs the Dermvet Skin and Ear Clinic from our Leicester Forest East branch; a clinic to diagnose and treat skin and ear conditions. He is one of very few in the country that uses a Video Otoscope to look closely into the ear canal. This invaluable piece of equipment has prevented many animals from needing surgery.

At Bell Brown and Bentley we appreciate that it can become a burden having to pay a lump sum each time your pet needs a flea or worming treatment. We have developed a Pet Health Plan to help you take a proactive, preventative approach to your animal’s health. For a small monthly payment you can receive a number of benefits including routine treatment, check-ups and discounts.

Every member of our team at Bell Brown and Bentley has a pet. We each understand how important the wellbeing of your animal is, and vow to do everything we can to make sure your furry friend leaves us in the best possible health.
