Our Hartlepool practice is led by owners Kathryn Green and Joanne Ciavarella, with Joanne also being the owner of Catterick Vets4Pets and they are supported by an excellent team of Veterinary Surgeons, 3 Registered Veterinary Nurses, 2 Veterinary Care Assistants and Non-clinical staff at each practice.

We are located in the vibrant seaside town of Hartlepool with great transport links. 30 minutes Teesside Airport, 45 minutes - Newcastle airport, 1 hour from Leeds/Bradford airport. As an experienced practice of welcoming overseas vet surgeons, we are on hand to help with housing, bank accounts, NI Numbers, driver’s licenses and personally overseeing the full settling in process as we understand how frightening it can be to leave family, friends and start in a new country.
