About Us

Our Hospital

The Barton Veterinary Hospital & Surgery was established in in 1890 in Lower Bridge Street. It moved to New Dover Road in 1928 where it was expanded in 1967. The premises underwent major refurbishment in 2009.

The practice is recognised by the Royal college of Veterinary Surgeons as an Small Animal Veterinary Hospital and a Veterinary Nursing Training Centre.

These accreditations are based on multiple inspections and guarantee the highest level of equipment, staff training and clinical care for your pets.

Today, the BVH is still the only Tier 3 recognised Hospital in Canterbury and one of four in Kent.

Barton Veterinary Hospital was acquired by CVS (UK) Limited in 1999 and now operates as part of this larger group of veterinary practices and veterinary service providers.
