We would like to reassure clients that we are still open for necessary appointments, surgeries, medication and food requests.

We ask that all clients coming to the practice contact us first and upon arrival follow the following steps:

• Please call your branch to let the receptionist know that you have arrived, please wait outside and the receptionist will call you as soon as either the Vet is ready to see you or your prescription/food is ready to be handed over.

• We ask that only one person enters the clinic with your pet.

• Wherever possible we would encourage card payments over cash, however, cash will still be accepted.

• Hand sanitizers are provided at all clinics - please use.

Thank you for your co-operation and patience.

Why visit your local Barnsley vet?

To get affordable essential healthcare

From vaccinations to health checks, pets need regular healthcare. It’s essential and it costs. That’s why we offer Pet Health Clubs to save you money, spread these costs over 12 months and ensure your pet still gets everything they need.

For peace of mind as your pets grow up

Those first months with your new puppy or kitten are times to treasure. We want to make sure it stays that way with our monthly health checks for all pups and kittens. We’ll track their development and keep a look out for any signs of future problems.

For must-have Microchipping

All dogs in the UK must be microchipped. But other pets can be too, so if they are ever lost or stolen, a simple scan of their microchip will ensure whoever finds them knows to get them right back to you. We provide this service for all pets from cats and dogs to rabbits, birds and even tortoises.

To get help with pet care

Do you ever feel overwhelmed by the responsibility of looking after your pet? It’s perfectly normal. That’s why we provide nurse clinics so you can get advice, guidance and help on anything from puppy socialisation to senior pet health.

To protect your pet from disease

It’s a joy to see your puppy or kitten bouncing around full of life. To make sure they stay happy and healthy you’ll need to ensure all of their vaccinations are up to date. And that’s exactly what we’ll do when you bring them in for their routine vaccinations.

To get advice on pet insurance

Up to 1 in 3 pets need emergency veterinary surgery or treatment every year. That makes pet insurance claims even more common than home or car insurance claims. If you don’t know where to turn for your pet insurance, we’re happy to advise you.

Lucy had been a patient at Abbey vets for quite a few years and the reason we drove miles for her health care was because of the last word in that phrase…care… One constant in her life has been the personal attention, expert treatment and good advice she has benefited from at Hoyland Abbey vets. Now our little girl has gone I want to thank everyone at the Hoyland Branch for your care and help over the years and a genuinely heartfelt thank you for sending that card and poem, it made arriving home on this first awful work day without her just that little bit easier. If anyone is reading this looking for a good veterinary service I cannot recommend this company highly enough.
