Abbey Veterinary Services is a well established diagnostic veterinary laboratory (founded in 1985) specialising in histopathology and cytopathology but also provides other services including clinical pathology (haematology, biochemistry, serology and endocrinology ) and bacterial/fungal culture and full urine analysis.

We are one of the biggest diagnostic veterinary laboratories in the UK. We provide our service predominantly to clients within the UK but also have many clients throughout the world. We provide a rapid veterinary diagnostic histopathology, cytology and clinical pathology service and we report on in excess of sixty thousand cases annually. The majority of samples we receive are generally routine but the size of the team allows provision for specialist and collective opinions on difficult cases.

Our team consists of experienced American and European Board certified as well as MRCPath qualified pathologists. Abbey Veterinary Services began in 1985 as the first specialist diagnostic histopathology laboratory in the UK. Since then we have expanded to provide diagnostic veterinary histopathology services to veterinary practitioners and universities throughout Britain, Europe, parts of the Middle East and Hong Kong. The team has grown to include 7 experienced, qualified veterinary pathologists and this is one of the largest teams of veterinary pathologists in Europe.
