Having opened in April 2010, our clinic in Stanhope has become more and more popular. This lead to a us moving to a new larger premises in January 2016 . Our new clinic is located in the furthest back units of the Durham Dales Centre in Stanhope. There are loads of parking spaces in a safe off road car park. Our new surgery is bigger, brighter, more modern and a waiting room where we can accomodate all sizes of dogs etc.
* Please note the surgery is closed from 12.00pm to 1.00pm each weekday.
We have consultations with the veterinary surgeon every morning and evening that we are open. Saturday midday appointments are also available.
We do not perform any surgical operations at our Stanhope branch. We offer a service whereby we transport your pet over and back to our main surgery in Alston for surgical procedures. Please ask at reception about this free service.
Consultations with the vets are by appointment, please call us on 01388 528866.
Many thanks for the prompt service provided on New Years Eve when our Clumber Spaniel broke her leg - great service as always!
I love this practice... always make each dog feel like the most important patient they have. They take time to answer questions and don't mind if you cry on the phone when your furbaby is having an "episode", lol
I have a caravan out in Eastgate. Took my cat to Rachel for a second opinion and changed over to this practice even though a 1 hour drive from home. Fantastic staff. Rachel and Karl are first class vets and lovely people that have helped my young cat so much with his many health problems and got him fit and healthy. Highly recommend them.
Rachel carried out a vetting on a horse for us on 19th April. We were travelling a long distance, didn't know any vets in the area but were recommended to contact Old Stone Vets. I am so glad that we did. What a professional and friendly practise, from the lovely lady on reception through to Rachel who did a fantastic job at the vetting. She had taken on board exactly what we were looking for in our potential new horse, and tailored the vetting exactly to suit that. We are delighted that the beautiful horse flew through the vetting and is now home with us. It gave us a lot of confidence having someone so knowledgeable and thorough as Rachel carrying out the vetting and we would recommend her and Old Stone Vets to anyone needing either a horse vetted or who needs a first class equine vet for their horses.
Rachel was lovely when she did the horses teeth, very calm and gentle with them, very happy
Bracken our collie needed treatment whilst we were on holiday. I found the care for my dog Bracken at the Old Stone Vets, Alston to be very caring and compassionate. All the staff are very kind and professional. They go the extra mile in their treatment and after care. I would recommend them.
