Welcome to Abbey House Vets, your trusted partner in your pet’s wellbeing.
Here at Abbey House, we understand the special bond that exists between pets and their owners, and we will do our very best to look after you both.
We take pride in setting and maintaining exceptionally high standards. Our commitment to excellence is not just a promise; it’s validated by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) inspection, where our Morley hospital achieved the highest tier 3 accreditation.
We understand the importance in staying at the forefront of veterinary care. That’s why we continually invest in our facilities and equipment, to ensure your pet receives the best possible care. Our exceptional team is the backbone of our practices, who go above and beyond to ensure the wellbeing of your pets.
We operate Vet and Nurse clinics at all six of our locations, offering a range of services to address your pet’s needs. Our dedicated out-of-hours team at Morley Hospital is always ready to provide emergency care. If you are ever concerned about your pet’s health, then we always recommend bringing them in to be examined by our team, to provide you peace of mind.
We strongly believe in a proactive approach to preventative health care. Our focus includes regular vaccinations, parasite control (fleas and worms) and weight management to keep your pets healthy and happy.
Three of our clinics – Kippax, Halton and Batley – feature operating facilities for neutering, routine surgical procedures, x-rays and in house laboratory tests. All our clinics are equipped with fully stocked dispensaries, to provide your pets with the medication they need.
Our Morley hospital is fully equipped for all surgical and hospitalised cases. Staffed 24/7, 365 days a year, we handle first opinion cases and referrals, covering specialities including ophthalmology, dermatology, surgery and medicine.
History of Abbey House
Abbey House was originally founded in 1977 as a small family run practice based in Morley. Over the years, it has undergone significant expansions and developments.
In 1980, Abbey House expanded its reach establishing two additional clinics in Rothwell and Cleckheaton. In 1992, the practice moved its main site to the hospitals’ current location, 52 Commercial Street in Morley. In 2001, Tom Clarke and Lisa Davies took over the partnership on David Slinger’s retirement. Both had been working as veterinary surgeons at the practice for a number of years. Leeds Emergency Vets was set up in 2002 to take responsibility for the out of hours care for all Abbey House patients and those of the local practices who signed up to the service as well.
Another clinic with operating facilities was opened on the High Street in Kippax in 2007, and then in 2015 the partnership bought Croft House Veterinary Clinic in Soothill, Batley on the retirement of owner and veterinary surgeon Cath Oakes. In 2017, Abbey House became part of Linnaeus Veterinary Group. Lisa and Tom have since retired from the practice. The practice is now led by our Lead Clinical Director Daisy Roe and Clinical Director James Baker.
