Welcome to Abbey Vets
Abbey Vets are an accredited Veterinary Practice based in the City of Durham, and in Chester-le-Street.
Christopher Whalley started Abbey Vets small animal practice at Neville's Cross, Durham in April 1994. Since then the practice has grown, offering a professional, high standard, caring veterinary service.
A small branch was opened in Chester-Le-Street in November 1996 and has since developed into a purpose built main surgery on Pelton Fell Road in Chester-Le-Street, which opened in February 2006.
