About the Surgery

Croft House Vets was established in the early 1980’s and became part of Abbey House in 2015 when owner and veterinary surgeon Cath Oakes retired. Most of the other staff remain the same.

The clinic is situated with easy access on Soothill lane in Batley with plenty of free parking on site. They have their own operating facilities so many day procedures can be carried out on site without the need to transfer patients to Morley.

The clinic in Batley has 3 vets, 2 of whom work at other branches as well as at Batley, 3 qualified nurses, a student nurse and 3 auxiliary nurses.
