Situated in central Hemel Hempstead we are also in easy reach for travelling from Berkhamsted, Kings Langley and Bovingdon. We are in a convenient location for clients, on the junction of Midland Road and Alexandra Road. There is a large free car park right next to our practice building. View 'Opening Hours' for our clinic appointment times. We run an appointment system with all first consultations 15 minutes long, allowing us to thoroughly assess your pet. Further details and maps are here to help you to Find Us. Take a Practice Tour and view our Services and details of our very popular Pet Health Club.

Reception is open between 8.00 am and 7 pm. Having extended opening hours gives more convenient access for our clients. You can view more information about our teams in 'Our staff'. A 24 hr emergency and Night service is located at the practice and is run on-site by experienced Vets Now staff. So at nights, weekends and Bank holidays you will always be seen right here and if your pet then needs an urgent hospital admission the facilities are here.

Barton Lodge Veterinary Centre was established in Hemel Hempstead nearly 60 years ago. Dogs, cats, rabbits, and small furry pets are all treated professionally and our qualified, trained and friendly staff provide a high quality service. Because our receptionists, vets and nurses are all pet owners too, we can all understand and sympathise with the feelings and concerns you have for your own pets.

Roger and Pedro, plus the veterinary surgeon team, all contribute to a wide range of skills within the practice. They each have their own particular fields of interest and have followed in-depth studies in various aspects of surgery and medicine to add to the comprehensive care and expertise provided for pets by Barton Lodge vets.

For twenty years our Head Veterinary Nurse Nicci Hawes RVN has lead our team of enthusiastic qualified and student Veterinary Nurses. Barton Lodge Veterinary Centre is an offical approved Training Practice where Veterinary Nurses gain their VN qualification. We are reapproved at annual inspections, most recently Autumn 2016 and have received RCVS Practice Standards accreditation. Barton Lodge Veterinary Centre has gained recognition of our whole practice committment to staff training and development. The refurbished premises and facilities were re-accredited for the RCVS Practice Standards scheme in October 2014, ensuring that an on-going high quality service is being provided by both the Barton Lodge and Vets Now staff teams.
“ Really friendly service, staff have been brilliant and gave me all the advice I needed and more for me and my new puppy. Highly recommend and already have done to a family member who is now registered with Barton Lodge. Thank You! ”
