Nine Lives Veterinary Centre

  Redbourn & Harpenden 

 

Welcome!

Hi! Welcome to our website. Take a peek behind the scenes with Kate's guided tour, she will show you how we help your pets get the most from all their 'nine lives'! 


This page will tell you all the basics - where we are, how to contact us, where to park.


Use the 'dashboard' on each page to have a look at more in depth sections - we've got lots of info on the great services we can offer and price lists to help you. You'll find pages on reptiles and chickens, as well as some guidance & debate on how to manage some common medical problems across the species.


You can order your pets' prescription medicines and foods here too - giving you the convenience & value of an online pharmacy with the reassurance that we have checked and prepared the medicines ourselves.


I look forwards to seeing you again soon, 

Emily
