This service is especially for Barton Lodge Veterinary Centre clients. We have paid special tributes to our own dear pets here too.
We had 17 years with Archie. We will miss him so much.
You have been the best of cats and enjoyed such a long and adventurous life. From your epic journeys into the fields and along the railway line, to finding yourself a second home with our neighbour, you have nevertheless always returned to enjoy your favourite tuna, a bowl of Sheba and have a good rest. We will miss you terribly dear old gentleman. Truly Jack you have been the King of Cats. Rest in peace dear friend.
We will always love you.

You were not always the easiest cat to live with. You frightened many visitors and were fierce, guarding the stairs with your claws and warning yowls. You came to us with quite a story and it took many years for you to feel safe again. However, we always loved you and you became a gentle, funny character in later years, enjoying a saucer of milk, your favourite butter and a good bowl of Felix. We will miss your funny ways greatly. Be at peace dear Fernando, may the stars shine brightly with you always.
With much love,
Saying goodbye to our precious dog Bailey was the hardest thing.
For almost 14 years he held a special place in our hearts and our home. From the day we picked him from a litter of six puppies to his last days spent with us.
A dog with ‘attitude’ but a real softy.
A huge thank you to all at Barton Lodge, especially Sonja, who cared so beautifully for our little man on his numerous visits.
RIP Sweet Pea

Our Darling Little Girl
We fell in love with you the day you were walked up our garden path and became part of our family back in 2010.
You were so very loved by everyone who knew you. We think of you every day and you'll remain in our heart's forever.
We'd like to thank Barton Lodge who cared for her especially Sarah who treated Pixie and us with the greatest respect when we knew it was time to say goodbye to our "beautiful old lady".
You're with Missy now, so RIP the both of you.

Our sweet little Millie Dog (Moo). You came to us as a timid, frightened little dog and grew into the most loving, loyal, funny part of the family. Our hearts ache that we had to let you go. RIP little one x
Absolutely heartbroken to lose my little Thumper. It was such a hard decision to make but I know it was for the best on his behalf. I want to say a big thank you to the team at Barton Lodge for everything they have done for Thumper over the years. He lived a very happy life, he was very well loved and he will be missed so much. 11 and a half years old is an incredible age but it was still so hard to say goodbye. I will always love you Thumper, sweet dreams my lil baby boy.
Farewell to our little man. We are so sorry to lose him but knew he was in pain. There's a very big Fritz-shaped hole in our house now, it's astonishing how much they're missed when you don't think you're noticing them all that much. It is as if they are part of the furniture. We will always remember his kind, loving nature, his purring and his warm soft cuddles. R.I.P. mate!
Rambo was our much loved and now sadly missed Patterdale Terrier. He may have been the last of the litter at 8 weeks old to be found a home in November 2000, but he lived for exactly 17 years in the one he waited for. We remember when the call of the wild was too much for you on a walk in Ashridge Woods, and you went missing for 2 hours, but had the sense to follow another family back to the car park for us to find you again. You stole our hearts, you little rascal! We hope you loved living with us as much as we loved looking after you. Thank you Barton Lodge for keeping him fit and well and able to live so long.

Dear Barton Lodge, Thank you so much for your lovely and thoughtful card following the sudden death of our dear dog Ronnie on November 8th. I was rushing back to get to you and my 17-year-old son Lewis was with Ronnie as he died. You supported him so well and he now is pleased that he was with him at the end. It has been a very strange 3 weeks getting used to not having Ronnie here. We are missing him so much. We rescued him via The Dogs Trust and it would have been 10 years exactly on 11th November since we brought him home. He has been a wonderful companion and such a character. He wanted to be a lap dog but was just a bit too big.
