A popular veterinary practice in Leeds has donated vital medical equipment to a charity that provides free expert care to animals in need all over the world.

Linnaeus-owned Abbey House Veterinary Hospital in Morley is giving Worldwide Veterinary Service (WVS) more than 200 endotracheal tubes, which can be used during operations.

The goodwill gesture comes as Abbey House is changing over to a new type of endotracheal tube and saw it as an ideal opportunity to support a good cause while also helping its own sustainability efforts by reducing waste.

Daisy Roe, lead clinical director at Abbey House Veterinary Hospital, said: “We’re delighted to donate these endotracheal tubes to Worldwide Veterinary Service and a special thanks goes to Vicky Lewis at Abbey House for organising this.

“Worldwide Veterinary Service does a fantastic job working tirelessly to ensure that no animal goes uncared for. We hope the equipment we’ve donated will help many patients, wherever they might be around the world.”

Lyndsey Wildman, charity liaison officer at WVS, said: “Thank you so much for this generous donation of ET tubes. We have already started sending them out to animal welfare organisations around the world, and they will ensure more animals can receive life-saving surgery, whether it is pangolins in Malawi, dogs in India, or cats in Thailand.

“In 2023, we sent more than 800 parcels with veterinary aid to organisations helping animals in 66 different countries, and this would not be possible without kind donations like this. We are so grateful for your support!”
