About the Surgery

Abbey House, Kippax opened in June 2007. The branch was extended in September 2008 to include an operating theatre, x-ray and laboratory facilities. Pets admitted at the Kippax and Rothwell branches for routine operations such as neutering or dentals are treated at Kippax.

There is free parking both on the roadside in front of the clinic and also in a car park to the rear of the premises.
