Great knowledge, kind caring staff. Lovely receptionists and brilliant vets and nurses. They recently offered free laser treatment to my lab to road test a laser they had on trial following my labradors three orthopaedic operations . The difference in him since laser has been incredible. Thanks Paragon you are wonderful. Ps the Equine team are second to none as well.
5* treatment every time! Since moving to the area 2 years ago they have looked after our dog and cats and I wouldn't take them anywhere else! Whether it's routine vaccinations or illness/injury they are just fabulous. They always take the greatest care of our anxious cat and when we had to make the heartbreaking decision to say goodbye to our oldest cat they allowed us to do so with compassion and gave us all the time we needed. Our collie actually gets excited about going to the vets he loves it there so much!! Brilliant team doing a great job
I would highly recommend Paragon Veterinary Group....18th month ago when he was 1 year old, my lab had a nasty encounter with my horse & was left with a damaged eye which needed to be removed I was worried sick but the staff there kept me well informed whilst he was in there & I was allowed to visit whenever I wanted which was brilliant as I’m such a worrier (he stayed in for a few nights) he seemed to bond with a few that was looking after him while he was in there too which was lovely. He’s now doing great & it doesn’t affect him at all

Been using this vets for years would never change. They are a lovely bunch of vets and nurses, to the animals and any anxious owners. FABULOUS
The vets at Paragon are amazing. They are compassionate and knowledgeable and always think outside the box. From Border Collies to gerbils they have looked after all my pets and the service has always been amazing. Red our eldest collie at 16 has been really well looked after these past two years especially and I trust them to always do what’s right for my animals. I would never ever trust any other vets with my animals. They are the best.
I was there as a contract worker but it seems like a very well run practice with friendly staff. 😊
Very good vet: the staff go the extra mile for your dog and you, and are very sensitive to your concerns.
Very happy with the service they provide

Excellent Vets. Paragon at Newbiggin are excellent. Friendly service and they fit you in as soon as possible. Would highly recommend.
I wanted to take the time again to thank the amazing Paragon team for their care, dedication, affection and efforts with my boy Alfie. Throughout his time in your care you kept me informed and updated throughout his treatment process and thank you to Ann and Sarah for the clam, painless and respectful send off. I am truly grateful and thankful to Ann for her time, communication, understanding and compassion. I cannot thank you all enough! Alfie was a credit to me and my whole family and he is well and truly missed!
Great experience at Paragon, Karen on the desk was very welcoming and showed us around the new hospital. our kitten had an infection this was dealt with professionally and prompt, Vet Ann was very nice and accommodating and gave us lots of information, very friendly practice, would highly recommend, will not go anywhere else. 5 stars...
