Roger's story

Barton Lodge Vets has experienced two generations of the Wickenden family at the helm. Now in its 60th year the practice’s outstanding reputation is being entrusted to Independent Vetcare &
Pedro-Martín Bartolomé DVM MRCVS as Roger Wickenden BVet Med MRCVS finally steps down having run things since the mid 1980s.

“We became part of the IVC family in February 2016 and what a couple of years it’s been! Having been the Practice’s Clinical Directors for the last three decades, both my wife Cath and I, have enjoyed the camaraderie of like-minded people across the group. Our opinions have been given the opportunity to be voiced and heard, and we have helped to develop the company our practice is proud to be a part of.

We found the right home for what is not just our practice, but also my father’s before me. Together with their recruitment team, we have found the new captain of the ship in Pedro and are delighted to be able to retire in the knowledge that Barton Lodge Vets will continue to flourish for generations to come.”
