History of Our Practice

abbeycentreThe origins of the practice date back to the early 1900s when the practice was the only practice in Northampton and situated in Derngate in the town centre.

Dealing with all species it was a traditional mixed practice where most of the clients were farmers with draught horses and farm livestock.

In 1974, the practice re-located to the Kettering Road site where following extensive development became the first and still to this date, the only Veterinary Hospital approved by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons situated in Northampton.

woottonfieldsIn the early 1990s the practice opened a branch surgery at the Abbey Centre in East Hunsbury which was followed by the purpose built Wootton Fields Veterinary Surgery opening in 2004.

With such an extensive history the practice has continued to offer the most up to date treatment and care for animals whilst still maintaining traditional values.


Spinney Lodge Veterinary Hospital is a Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) accredited Veterinary Hospital and the only one in Northampton. This means that the service we provide meets the highest possible criteria defined by the RCVS.

We are inspected every four years and monitored by the RCVS to maintain accreditation for high standards of care. We believe that in holding hospital status we can offer our clients the additional reassurance associated with this accreditation.
