We would love to meet you and care for your pets in our friendly practice. We were nominated for the Pet Plan Practice of the Year 2016 and 2017. Barton Lodge Veterinary Centre provides the best of modern veterinary treatments for pets and their owners in our caring environment. Our veterinary practice is run by Clincal Directors Roger Wickenden and Pedro-Martin Bartolome. 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. We run an appointment system with all first consultations 15 minutes long, allowing us to thoroughly assess your pet. View our services and details of our very popular Pet Health Club.
Reception is open between 8:00am and 7:00pm. Having extended opening hours gives more convenient access for our clients. A 24-hour 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. All hospitalised patients are cared for here out of hours by Vets Now emergency staff.
There are 5 veterinary surgeons and 6 veterinary nurses plus 4 receptionists and 2 practice administrators. All the members of our staff are committed to providing the highest standard of veterinary service and care for our clients and their pets.
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 re-approved 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.
