About Us

Providing outstanding primary healthcare in Bedfordshire

Our vet practice in Barton-le-Clay is an RCVS accredited veterinary hospital.

Facilities at our hospital in Barton-Le-Clay include 4 pet consulting rooms, a safe and secure ward for in-patients and day-patients including a separate cattery. We are also lucky enough to have a state of the art CT scanner as well as top end digital x-ray, dental x-ray, endoscopes and ultrasound.

We also have a branch practice in the centre of Flitwick giving our clients flexibility when booking appointments.

Our experienced and friendly team of vets, nurses and support staff work across both sites and look forward to welcoming you.

What to Expect

  • Welcome: our staff will always welcome you with a smile. You will be asked to weigh your dog when you arrive and, if it is your first visit, you will be asked to complete a registration form.
  • Consultations: usually the vet and nurse will conduct the consultation together. This provides you with the best opportunity to discuss all your pet health queries or concerns.
  • In-Patients: are constantly monitored throughout their time with us. We have vets and nurses on site 24/7 including Bank Holidays. During procedures that require anaesthesia a nurse will monitor the patient’s status at all times and will make recordings of various parameters such as heart rate, breathing rate and oxygen levels. After surgery is completed the patient is monitored 1:1 until they have recovered from the anaesthetic.
  • Client Service: at all times we aim to provide you with whatever you need. We appreciate your input in improving our service, you can contact us at any time by phone, email or post.
  • Discharges: when in-patients are ready to be discharged, a nurse will go through the discharge details and any medication that needs to be given.
  • Payments: for all treatments are required before you leave the practice. Payments can be made in cash or by credit/debit card.
