About us here at Abbey House Vets. Welcome to our practice and thank you for entrusting the care of your pet to us. 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 set our own very high standards which are authenticated by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) inspection where we reached the highest tier 3 accreditation at the hospital in Morley. We are continually updating our facilities and investing in equipment. We are also extremely proud of all our team and it is a credit to their commitment and compassion that we can provide this level of care for your pets.
We have veterinary appointments available throughout the day at all of our branch clinics and throughout the night at the Morley hospital for emergency cases. If you are concerned about your pet’s health then we always recommend bringing them in to be examined by a veterinary surgeon.
A lot of our work is about preventing health issues in our pets and this includes encouraging our pets to have regular vaccinations, the treatment of parasites such as fleas and worms and managing our pets weight.
Three of the five branches have operating facilities. Our branch clinics at Kippax and Croft House perform neutering and routine surgical procedures along with x-rays and laboratory tests. All of the clinics have fully stocked dispensaries.
History of Abbey House
Abbey House was founded in 1977 as a small family run practice based in Morley. In 1980 branch clinics were established 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 branch 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.
