We have divided our practice geographically; dedicated farm vets are located at Wooler, Alnwick, Rothbury and Ponteland in order to service our clients from the nearest surgery wherever possible with experienced, motivated vets and support staff.
At our Wagonway Road surgery in Alnwick, the large animal treatment rooms allow hospitalisation, treatment and surgery on calves, sheep and pigs. Each of our farm vets’ cars is fully stocked to deal with all emergencies. Ultrasound scanners are available at each of our surgeries for on-farm pregnancy testing. We regularly fertility test bulls and tups, ideally six weeks before use.
We have two tipping crushes in the practice for use on cattle. These enable bulls and cows to be safely and efficiently tipped onto their sides to allow procedures, typically foot trimming, to be carried out. A full range of veterinary products are available from our surgeries at competitive prices.
Here are a few positive words from some of our clients:
“As far as we’re concerned, there is only one vet practice we would consider using. The surgery in Wooler has treated our cattle, sheep, horses, dogs, cats for over 60 years and we’ve had great service. The product prices are now so competitive that almost 100% are bought from them. Staff continuity is very good, and always welcoming.”
“We have been clients of the Wooler practice since 1991, happy with all the new partnerships and now as Alnorthumbria, we are just as happy, with the excellent treatment and advice given by the vets. It is also very competitive with prices for animal health products. Also a mention to all the staff who are so helpful, especially one, who shall remain nameless.”
