Caring for Hartlepool's pets since 1950

We first opened in Hartlepool in 1950 as Barr and Wall, and have expanded over the years to cover Billingham, Horden and Sedgefield, taking our name, Clifton Lodge, from the building of our original premises.

In that time we’ve had plenty of practice caring for our clients and pets in our community, and our longstanding teams, many of whom have been with us for three decades and more, have seen generations of pets and families come through our doors.

Our friendly team has been selected with our clients in mind, and has developed a mix of nationalities, with vets from South Africa, Australia, Poland, Bulgaria and Spain all providing different skills and knowledge to help us provide the very best service.

Our sites offer impressive facilities, including x-rays, ultrasounds, on-site labs, surgical and dental theatres and hospitalisation kennels. Our Sedgefield surgery offers consults only, but patients can be transferred to any of our other sites if necessary.

If that sounds good to you, we’d be delighted to welcome you to our practice.
