A reminder for all our clients that our Thongsbridge branch will be re-opening tomorrow 6th July! 😃😃😃😃 Our staff have been busy over the last few days preparing the surgery and are looking forward to welcoming our lovely clients back to Thongsbridge (from a safe distance obviously 😄!).
⚠️If you visit Thongsbridge, please remain in your vehicle and a member of staff will come over to assist you. Please do not attempt to enter the building unless instructed to do so by a member of staff. ⚠️
Our staff will be working extremely hard to provide the same excellent level of care for your pets in these challenging circumstances as well as keeping you and themselves safe!
Once again we would like to thank you all for all the compliments and kind messages of support we have received in the last few months! 😊 ... See MoreSee Less

The Donaldson’s team are delighted to announce more good news! We are RE-OPENING OUR THONGSBRIDGE BRANCH from Monday July 6th with your usual friendly faces ready to greet you. Our staff will explain our biosecurity measures to you to ensure everyone is kept safe.
We are also extending clinic times at Shepley and Mirfield, and these branches along with Thongsbridge will be opening on Saturdays to help those of you who are back at work find appointment times to suit.
Alongside these increased opening hours at the branches, weekends at Somerset Road will be returning to normal service and charges.
And finally- we would like to thank our valued Birchencliffe clients especially for their continued patience and support as we put the final touches to the renovations and improvements at your surgery. While the Covid 19 situation has hugely complicated the planned building work, we have been labouring away to bring you more facilities and capacity to be able to offer you more vet, nurse and rehabilitation appointments and improved reception and waiting facilities. We will be back with you very soon, but in the meantime our Somerset Road Hospital and Sowerby Bridge branch will welcome you with open arms 🙂
Clinic hours from Sunday 5th July:
🔹SOMERSET ROAD HOSPITAL Mon-Fri 9am-7pm Saturday 9am-11am and 2-3pm Sunday Emergencies only Emergency staff on site 24/7/365
Great News on Birchencliffe..I have been to the Somerset Road facilities..and very well we were looked after too..but because I live on the same road as Birchencliffe surgery..I sure do miss the ease of getting there. But an enormous thank you in the recent unprecedented times for looking after all.🐕❤
Thanks for the update on Birchencliffe. Hopefully, Holly will not give me heart failure again till they reopen 😁😁

Hi, I wondered if you know when you will be doing routine appointments again? My dog is overdue his boosters and was also due for neutering before lockdown. We normally go to Birchencliffe 🙂
Here are some useful pointers for anyone who is looking to welcome a new puppy into their family! 🙂
🐶 Make sure you are able to see the parents ..... at least the mother and the puppies interacting with her.
🐶Ask to view all relevant paperwork e.g. health and vaccination records, microchip details, health test certificates for the puppies parents (breed dependent).
🐶Pay attention to the environment the dogs are kept in. Is it clean and tidy and do all the dogs look in good health?
🐶Ask questions!!! You can never ask too many!
🐶The more questions the breeder asks you, the better! It shows they care!
🐶Do your research on the breed prior to viewing the puppies. There are hundreds of breeds of dogs out there, many of which can make fantastic family pets but are often overlooked!
Unless you are concerned, we always recommend letting your new puppy settle in at home for at least a week before visiting us for a health check 🙂🐾Do you know the signs of a rogue puppy breeder?! Here are some top tips to help you spot the fakery…
If you’re looking to welcome a puppy in to your home, make sure you find a reputable breeder via our website: bit.ly/30QkCSw #BePuppywise ... See MoreSee Less
We are sure you have all noticed that its red hot today!! 🥵🥵🥵 With weather like this it is essential to keep a close eye on all pets and animals. Remember, if it’s hot for us, it will be twice as hot for our pets who are wearing fur coats! Heat stroke is a very serious medical emergency that can be fatal. So how to prevent heatstroke?
🌞 Ensure all animals have constant access to water.
🌞 Try keeping your dog mentally stimulated in the cool indoors instead of walking in the heat.
🌞 Missing a walk because it’s too hot won’t harm pets but walking them in high temperatures could!
🌞 If the tarmac is too hot to the touch then it is too hot for dogs paws and can lead to burns.
🌞 NEVER leave your dogs or any animals in a car on a hot day!!!
🌞 For rabbits, and other small furies make sure they have water and a shady spot they can go to if they want.
If you are worried at all that your pet is showing any signs of heat stroke then do not hesitate to contact us! ... See MoreSee Less
