Merger with veterinary practice Karl-Heinz Wessling

Published On: 27. May 2022

We would like to welcome the veterinary practice Dr. Karl-Heinz Wessling in Lingen as a new branch of the Veterinary Competence Centre Karthaus GmbH and thus part of the Altano Group!

The practice, founded in 1999 by Dr. Karl-Heinz Wessling, cared for its animal patients in the basement of a semi-detached house in the first few years. In 2005, the practice moved to newly built premises in the eastern part of Lingen, where it is still located today.

The team takes care of horses and small animals with a lot of heart and competence.

The focus of the equine practice is on outpatient care, but there are also sufficient rooms available for inpatient stays. In addition to the treatment room and the paved courtyard, the practice has three stalls, a recovery box, a large turnout and two paddocks. Horse owners thus enjoy optimal conditions for a wide range of diagnostic and treatment options. Special emphasis is placed on general equine medicine, mare gynaecology, foal medicine and purchase examinations.

Animals and people are equally well looked after in the small-animal practice, which also offers inpatient care, e.g. intensive care, in addition to the usual outpatient care.

In addition to routine examinations, surgical procedures and dental treatments – to name just a few options – pet owners can look forward to feed consultations, and the practice’s repertoire also includes the certificate of competence for dog ownership.

The founder of the practice, Dr. Wessling, began his veterinary career in Hanover and, after his exams, started working as a veterinarian in the large-animal practice of Michael Oppel in the Bentheimer Grafschaft. From 1995 until he opened his own practice, he worked in the equine practice of Christof Rowold in Haselünne.

In addition to himself, his team in Lingen now includes 2 other veterinarians, 7 veterinary assistants, 2 office staff and, from August, a trainee veterinary assistant.

We are pleased to count this friendly and energetic team as another valuable member of our Altano network in Germany!
