WE ARE OPEN
Easily Make an Appointment today...
Now that social distancing guidelines have been reduced to 1 metre we are able to start making some changes to the way we operate.
Going forward anyone visiting our branches no longer needs to call on arrival, instead please pop into reception and providing that there is enough space for you to maintain distance from other clients and staff members please take a seat.
We ask that anyone coming into the practice wear a face mask or covering and use the hand sanitizers provided upon entering and before leaving the practice.
It is now possible for ONE person to enter the consulting room with your pet and the Vet. We still ask that no more than two people attend your pet's appointment.
Finally, we still encourage card payments wherever possible.
We still have restrictions in place with regards to the appointments that we are able to see but are regularly reviewing this and hope to resume normal service as soon as it is safe for us to do so. Please keep checking our page for further updates.
Once again thank you for your cooperation and patience.
The Abbey Vets Team
At the moment FREE INTRODUCTORY CONSULTATION AND FREE PUPPY and KITTEN CHECKS WILL NEED TO BE PUT ON HOLD as we have not enough appointment times available for sick or injured pets due to Covid restrictions.
We will bring these back in as soon as possible.
Why visit your local Barnsley vet?
This is an extremely good vets. We have used the main Dodworth branch as well as Darton and Hoyland branches and have have always received a totally professional but caring service. Recently the vets at the Dodworth branch literally saved our GSD Jake’s life when he suffered a twisted stomach. Many many thanks to Mr Duffy for his incredible surgical skill and Mihai and his team for aftercare that was beyond measure. I have used this practice since the late 1990’s and I do not hesitate in my recommendation.
To all of you in Reception - on the desk and on the phone - whenever we contact you - an appointment - support for crisis - and all the other sad things you have to do - you really are the front line. You are unfailingly courteous, sympathetic and helpful and we are grateful, not just for your support over Milly, but on all the other occasions when you all make a difference.Thank you all.

Hi, please can you pass my most grateful thanks onto vet, Natalie....
Fianna, my Huskamute, came in for two lumpectomies yesterday , and on arriving home became extremely distressed. She has quite an extensive and painful wound on her side (& head) due to the op, and I at first didn't want to stress her any further by putting her back in the car for another journey back into you as she was obviously in a lot of pain.
Natalie arranged for some additional pain meds for Fianna, and thankfully, these really helped. Fianna is much more settled this mornin. A HUGE thank youto Natalie, plus whichever theatre nurse I also spoke to on the phone when I rang into Barnsley yesterday afternoon.
Keep up the fabulous work!
Hello Mr D,
My friend's mum came in with her cat Oreo Judd on Wednesday who was severely constipated and had to be admitted. She asked me to tell you that the staff that dealt with Oreo, Eleanor, Mariline and the nurses were all amazing in what she noticed to be a very busy shift. She said that they were all lovely and has posted on facebook about the 'fabulous treatment' they received at Abbey.
Hello I just wanted to say I went to Deepcar Vets yesterday afternoon to pick up my dog and cats prescriptions, the young girl on the reception was so very friendly and helpful with choosing the right flea and worming treatments and was just really lovely. I thought I would tell you as it’s nice to know your staff are doing so well.
I've a fear/noise reactive BC whom is very nervous I didn't even have to explain the vet knew and ignored him and just let him sniff and come to her which was a great start I've seen vets put their arms out and he panics she was so good with him she knew he was stressing out by his body language and his licking – very good.
I am writing this completely heartbroken following the loss of both my adored dogs within the space of a week butI just wanted to say a massive thank you to the team at Hoyland. Over the years the Hoyland branch have provided excellent care and service and I really appreciate it.
We would like to thank vet Katie and nurse Sara on the kind and professional way they helped our Suey on her journey over Rainbow Bridge.
We would also like very much to thank Rebecca (Cudworth branch) for caring for Suey after her stroke giving us an extra 2 years. Without Rebeccas help it would not have been possible
Please would you pass on our grateful thanks

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.

CHANGE IN OUT OF HOURS EMERGENCY COVER
After caring for our clients and their pets for the last 45 years with full 24hour Emergency Care – we find we are no longer in a position to be able to carry on providing a full night service.
The toll on our Abbey Team, Vets, Nurses and Receptionists during this horrific 12 months of Covid has been extreme to say the least.
We will continue to provide full 24 hour Veterinary and Nursing care to Hospitalised pets and attend to emergencies during our opening hours.
However, we can no longer be on call for any new emergencies which may come in after our normal working surgery hours.
It saddens us greatly and we sincerely regret this decision but currently, we are unable to continue to provide this service.
From now on at night 'VETS NOW' in Sheffield and Doncaster will be responsible for assisting you with any emergency, essential queries or urgent medical needs you have for your pet. When we are closed our telephone answering machine will provide this number.
They are a night service only and do not open during the day.
We will still be responsible for handling your pet-related Emergencies between:
8am and 8 pm Monday to Friday
8am until 5pm Saturdays and Sundays.
8am until 5pm on Bank Holidays
As normal, routine booked appointments on Weekends and Bank Holidays are at our standard fees.
