About Us


Welcome to Yoredale Vets, a family-run practice which has been serving the needs of clients throughout the Yorkshire Dales for more than 40 years. With four surgeries across Leyburn, Masham and Bedale, Yoredale Vets is proud to provide a tailored service to all clients including small pets, horses, and farm animals. No animal is too great or small!

Yoredale Vets was formed in May 2014 when Linscott Vets merged with Hollin Rigg Vets (J & J.L. Watkinson). Both long-established and popular practices since the 1960’s and 1940’s respectively, Yoredale Vets offers a wealth of knowledge and experience with significant expertise in livestock production.

The practice has grown from strength to strength since formation whilst maintaining an unsurpassed level of personal service and client contact. Based in Masham, Bedale and Leyburn, Yoredale Vets play an important role within the local farming community and is able to offer the very best in modern facilities and techniques, safeguarding the welfare of herds and flocks and therefore the profit margin of our clients.

With over 90 years combined experience, our vets are dedicated to providing the highest level of care to both clients and their animals. We run a 24-hour emergency service, should you require veterinary care out of normal working hours.

Our centrally held database ensures that all of your pet’s details are fully accessible whichever of our four branches you visit; we are also able to offer transport to patients between branches when cases require. Our excellent facilities include sterile operating theatre, digital x-rays, ultrasound scanners, dedicated dental area, hospitalisation ward with separate isolation area, and in-house laboratory services.
