We are happy to announce that Aire Veterinary Centre Ltd is now offering a Healthy Pet Club Plan.

The practice was offering a scheme before, similar to this Healthy Pet Club Plan.

The difference however is that this plan offers monthly DD payment options, whereas the previous plan we were offering was on an annual payment basis.

The savings are also better than what we were able to offer before.

For more information on The Healthy Pet Club, please call our reception team on 0113 2786072 or alternatively visit our links page for a direct link to the HPC website.

We're looking forward to seeing you soon!

After a great pet portrait day with Robert Ashton on Saturday 6th May, we're organising another one in July 2017, most likely Saturday 29th July.  

If you'd like to take part in this photo shoot in July, please leave your contact details at reception with an indication for the photographer about number of pets to be photographed together or whether you'd like a picture taken together with your pet(s).


It doesn't often that we get an appeal from the BBC to try to draw together people, little people and pets for a program.

CBeebies will be filming in Leeds and they're looking for little people aged 4-7, who have pets with a condition. 

Please contact the organisers directly for an application form, details of which can be found on the flyer to the right.

Hope to see some of our clients on CBeebies!!

As mentioned in our Aire Specials section, there is a lot of variability in Pet Insurance.  Our staff are very experienced in dealing with insurance claims.  

As we are filling in a great number of claims per year, we are also witness to the heart ache of clients when they find out they don't have the cover they thought they had when dealing with an emergency.

In the Pet Insurance Update, we cover some of the pitfalls clients can find themselves in when choosing insurance for their pets.  We endeavour to explain to clients as much as possible how choosing certain insurance types could affect them.

From a personal point of view, I have chosen a LifeLong Cover for all my pets.  Ruby, my sweet collie, was diagnosed with a tumour in her foot in 2011 and I am aware that the next step in treating her might well need to be amputation at some point.  So far, this has not been necessary yet.  With an annual renewal policy, the cost of referring her to a colleague for that procedure would not have been covered after the initial year of investigations in 2011.  With this LifeLong Cover I am assured that if Ruby needs surgery at some pointin the future, even though we're years on from the initial diagnosis, the LifeLong Cover is in place to finance that event.

It's been confirmed that a tick-borne disease that was a known disease in the South of Europe has now been found in the South of the UK. We are unsure as to whether it will affect any of our client's pets yet for those travelling to South UK with their pets may find this relevant.
