About the Surgery

Abbey House Rothwell is situated close to Rothwell town centre. There is free parking at the side of the building for one vehicle but ample space at the park which is just 2 minutes walk away.

There are four receptionists a veterinary nurse and one veterinary surgeon, the clinic is small and friendly but benefits from the support of both the main hospital in Morley and the branch in Kippax. Routine procedures such as neutering are carried out at Kippax but any more serious procedures would be carried out at Morley by one of our specialist Veterinary Surgeons.
