The practice has been based at Carlisle House since 1994. This imposing building was originally built as a Vicarage, and had also been used as a Children's Home and a Masonic Lodge before being extensively refurbished and reborn as the Caldew Veterinary Centre - various phases of development have seen it expand into the purpose built premises it is today.

We have recently completed Phase 2 of the development of Carlisle House into a modern, state of the art veterinary facility.
We are pleased to show our facilities to our clients and if you would like a tour round please ask a member of staff and this can be arranged.
We have a virtual walkthrough of the facilities available:
Although all species are covered from every centre our main equine facilities including in-patient and diagnostic facilities are at our Newbiggin site.
We have several IVF collection centres with our laboratory and support team for advanced breeding based at our Newbiggin centre.
Townhead Veterinary Centre at Newbiggin is continuing to develop in all areas. Our main equine and advanced breeding facilities are based on the farm here. The small animal facilities are constantly evolving, and we offer a complete range of services in a friendly and professional environment.
This site is is based within the grounds of Wetheral Oak Tree Animals' Charity. It is equipped for all small animal consultations such as general health checks, vaccinations and preventative health care including providing flea and worming treatments. Further diagnostic procedures are carried out at Dalston due to available facilities.
You will always see a friendly face here as it is run by our small animal team.
We moved into this site within the yard at the Oak Tree Animals' Charity at Wetheral in October 2019. We refurbished the premises to include a waiting area and a modern veterinary consulting room.
The "Animals' Refuge" as it was known was founded in 1909 by Francis Cox, who campaigned for better working conditions for pit ponies and other working horses, and the Charity has now grown to provide a home for horses, goats, sheep and cattle. It’s also a safe haven for hundreds of stray, abandoned or unwanted dogs and cats who are rehomed through their Adoption Programme. For more information on Oak Tree Animals' Charity click here
