There are three consulting rooms, compared with just two at the former site, enabling veterinary nurses to hold more clinics such as puppy checks and pet weight sessions, and provide some services more frequently.

There will also be designated cat and dog walking areas in reception, while there will also separate wards for the two to ensure pets can remain calm during their visit.

Wilson Vets also has branches in Spennymoor and Bishop Auckland.
