Our History


Sixty Years

Chantry Vets has been providing veterinary care to the pets of West Yorkshire for more than 60 years. Initially based in Wakefield Town Centre, we have expanded into one of the area’s largest Small Animal practices.


We have 7 branches which are all supported by our main Hospital at Brindley Way, Wakefield. We initially moved from our headquarters at Gills Yard, Wakefield, to Batley Road, Alverthorpe in 2012, but later outgrew this site also.  We opened our flagship purpose-built hospital with state-of-the-art facilities in March 2022 in order to provide greater levels of service to our customers and their beloved pets.  Our Gills Yard and Alverthorpe surgeries now provide first opinion services to the local community in easily accessible locations. 

The practice has gained hospital status in 2013; the highest level of accreditation that is available from the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS).  Every four years the practice undergoes rigorous inspections across all our premises.

Community Engagement

We are proud to have a strong community focus and sponsor many local events and organisations.
