Our clinical team is extremely supportive, and we aim to offer our clients an excellent service. We encourage case continuity while providing an excellent atmosphere to develop your own interests.

We have branches located across south-east Northumberland. The main hospital has radiography/endoscopy, ultrasonography, dental, laboratory and hydrotherapy suites. We have 4 modern surgical theatres and 6 consulting rooms.

Our vets have a wide range of experience and interests and include several certificate holders. We are a nurse training practice and encourage our nurses to continue their education post qualification.

We provide our own OOH service to give our clients an excellent and complete on-site service.
