Paragon Veterinary Group is a Cumbrian-based veterinary practice with over 80 years experience in caring for animals. The name 'par-a-gon' refers to a model of excellence or perfection, and over the years we have gone from strength-to-strength to build up our reputation to the highest possible standards in our field.
We combine high standards of companion animal clinical veterinary practice with a commitment to nursing and all-round patient care.
Our busy equine team covers the full range from companion donkeys through to racehorses and top-flight competition animals.
Working out of centres in Dalston near Carlisle and Newbiggin near Penrith, Paragon employs highly experienced and dedicated farm animal vets
We offer embryo transfer services, sexing, IVF, semen collection and a residential unit to farmers here in the UK and Ireland.
Excellent Vets. Paragon at Newbiggin are excellent. Friendly service and they fit you in as soon as possible. Would highly recommend.
My wife Karen and I would like to say a massive THANK YOU to Paragon Vets especially to Graham Lewis and his team, who operated on Maxy removing the lodged golf ball from Maxy’s small intestine and ultimately saving his life! Maxy received brilliant care from all staff from start to finish, and we were kept fully up to date with his prognosis and progress. Maxy has fully recovered and now has his “spring” back in his step. Fantastic news for us!
I attended a clinic with my elderly border collie today for a 2nd opinion regarding a health issue. Laura and Karen were so caring and knowledgeable, they checked what was needed and were able to give me the results right there and then. They answered all my questions honestly and compassionately. Listened to my worries that in the past I feel, had simply been brushed aside and put down to my dogs old age. They put my mind at rest on so many levels and I feel they truely care about older animals having the best quality of life that is possible. I have transferred all three of my dogs care to Paragon veterinary group this evening as I was so impressed by their care, professionalism, knowledge and surgery. I highly recommend them. 5 stars from Jess & I ❤🐾
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
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...
All the team at Paragon are fantastic! They really get to know your pets (especially when you have a cat that gets in to as much trouble as one of ours!) and treat them the way that’s best for them. They are always professional and compassionate. Wholeheartedly recommend!
Thank you to Paragon vets and to Sam the vet and her team. We cannot thank you enough! We hope you enjoy the little gift from Bailey for the hard work you did to save him. Thank you once again.
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 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.
This is a brilliant veterinary practice. We were on holiday in the area with our two dogs and one of them needed a blood test for a condition she has. The vet was exceptionally professional; she exchanged the medical notes with my home vet and made sure we had the test results within 24 hrs. All other staff we encountered was friendly, professional and knowledgeable. We were made to feel very welcome. The cost was very affordable too and excellent value for money.
Keep up with all the news and activity at Paragon!
