The main practice centre is in Grimsby on the North Lincolnshire coast. We also run two branch practices for consultations only at Immingham and Caistor. Our vet practice, which is small animal only, is based in a massive old Victorian house in the conservation area of the town, with extensive on-site parking for both clients and staff. The majority of our clients have been with us for many years and consider our family atmosphere and personal, friendly consulting style to be one which inspires their trust in the treatment of their pets.
We don’t have any targets for vaccination, worming, flea treatment and dentals, we just provide high-quality and professional veterinary information and let the client decide what is bets for their pet and their budget. We think that’s the least stressful way to go about these things, for both our clients and for us.
Whether you’re the proud owner of a loyal pup or a cuddly kitty, doing all you can to keep them happy and healthy at all times is sure to be your biggest priority.
Finding a vet clinic you can trust to give your pet the treatment they deserve can therefore seem challenging, but at Abbey Vet Centre, based in Grimsby, we go above and beyond to put our patients and their owners at ease at all times.
We’re proud to run a small yet established emergency vets clinic in Grimsby, North-East Lincolnshire, with two brand surgeries in nearby Immingham and Caistor.
We understand that all owners want the best possible treatment for their pet, which is why we pride ourselves on pursuing accurate diagnoses and offering exceptional in-house diagnostic facilities. We have our own MRI and CT scanners, as well as hospital-standard digital x-ray, ultrasound, bronchoscopy, endoscopy, electrocardiography and extensive laboratory facilities.
For local vets you can rely on, look no further than Grimsby’s Abbey Vet Centre. Contact our team of compassionate veterinarians to book an appointment by calling one of the numbers below during office hours.
There are more than forty hospital kennels in our medical, surgical and isolation wards, so hospitalisation and intensive investigation plus appropriate medical and post-surgical nursing is never a problem here. The extensive accommodation means that it is very easy for a pet to be admitted and examined at length and case-conferenced with other vets if the veterinary surgeon who is in charge of the case wishes to do so.
We have separate soft tissue and orthopaedic theatres to ensure appropriate levels of asepsis are maintained for all our surgical patients. As a result, we have an excellent record of achieving complication free post-operative recovery in the vast majority of cases.
Our advanced imaging facilities (Digital Radiography, Ultrasonography, CT and MRI) enable us to provide ‘start of the art’ diagnoses whatever the problem with which a patient arrives. Our nurses run all laboratory investigations, radiography and electrocardiography which means that the veterinary surgeons are free to chase diagnoses and make decisions about treatment regimes.
Outside normal consulting hours, our own vets provide our emergency service so we always have access to the patient’s full medical history in order to provide the best possible care. We always have nurses on duty to ensure that in-patient nursing is maintained when we stop routine consulting for the day.
The Abbey Veterinary Centre has a permanent team of seven veterinary surgeons. Many of our vets either hold or are working towards post -graduate qualifications which enable them to diagnose and treat patients with complex conditions, both medical and surgical. The experience of our senior vets means that the practice provides excellent veterinary support for recent or relatively recent graduates. All vets rotate equally through wards, consultations and theatre and we actively encourage all veterinary staff towards competence in all fields.
We have a long established nursing team of around 12 qualified and student nurses working for us, led by our Head Nurse who holds an Advanced Diploma in Small Animal Nursing. We value veterinary nursing skills; all our nurses perform all lab investigations (blood sampling, spectrophotometry, preparing blood smears, urinalysis including dry preparations), all radiography, electrocardiography and a variety of nurse consultations (e.g. puppy health checks, dietary and behavioural advice). Where possible, we encourage our veterinary nurses to perform Schedule 3 surgical procedures. This makes full use of nurse training and allows veterinary surgeons to concentrate on interpreting data rather than having to personally perform all the routine investigative procedures themselves.
We like to think that the practice has a happy and relaxed working atmosphere. We consider everyone to be part of the team and to be integral to our reputation and success.
