Medivet Hendon 24 Hour Hospital

The Medivet Hendon 24 Hour Hospital is one of nine 24 hour centres operated by Medivet. Each patient we treat at Hendon is treated as if they were our own and this is reflected in our loyal client base and friendly staff. We hope to meet you and your pet soon to show you the care and commitment that we deliver here at Medivet Hendon.

Our practice is situated on Watford Way and provides ample parking on the forecourt. The welcoming reception is large and spacious. We understand that the waiting period for your pet can be the most anxious time of their visit to the clinic. In order to assist in providing your pet with the most comforting visit to our clinic, we offer a separate area for cats and dogs, to help ease your pets' nerves. Our reception team will gladly provide refreshments for you and greet your furry friends.

Richard L - CircleDr. Richard Leonard - Senior Partner and Veterinary Surgeon

I qualified in Dublin in 1980 and worked in Stud and Farm practice for 2 years before going to work in small animal practice in South Africa. In 1987 I moved to London and joined Medivet with a view to open our first 24 hour centre at Hendon. I am married and have two children and three dogs.

Dr. Jerry Dunne - Partner and Veterinary SurgeonJerry Dunne - Vet

I hold a degree in MVB as well as a general practitioner certificate and small animal surgery (GPCertSAS). I also hold a post graduate certificate in small animal surgery (PGCertSAS). Before joining Medivet Hendon, I worked in a mixed practice for 2 years in Snowdonia before completing a further 9 years in a small animal practice. I have a special interest in surgery, particularly orthopaedic and spinal, as well as CT imaging. I have one pet, Sammy, who lives back on the dairy farm I grew up on in Ireland. In my spare time I enjoy hiking, mountain climbing, surfing, sailing, playing the cello, violin and piano. 


Your pet is never left alone whilst staying with us at Hendon. The nurses take great joy in bonding with your pet and are available day and night to talk you through your concerns, or just to give you a happy update. We love meeting and learning about you as well as your poorly companion. We have a large garden for the dogs, who are walked every 2 hours. The cats have their own quiet ward at the other side of the building. Visiting is always welcomed here; we also like to show off our facilities so feel free to ask for a tour!

Please be aware that appointment times are meant as a guide. Animals are unpredictable and so are their illnesses. So this can mean that a routine check-up may take a long time as the vet has discovered a more serious problem, or emergencies can present at any time. And believe us, they do!
