COVID-19

We are still open and available for treatment of your pets but are taking additional precautions in line with government and health professional advice.

When you visit the clinic please follow social distancing practices and guidance from our staff.

If you are unwell please do not come to the clinic and call us first if your pet needs veterinary care and we will work with you to provide the treatment your pet may need.

Repeat Scripts and food:

Please phone to organise your scripts and food.

We are requesting you pay over the phone where possible and phone us when you arrive at the clinic and we will bring those items out to you.

Are veterinary clinics classed as essential?

Currently, veterinary services are not classed as essential services BUT in every other country where a shut down has occurred, veterinary clinics have remained open to provide treatment to sick animals. The AVA is speaking with government to ensure we are classed as an essential service.

Can our pets get or transmit COVID-19?

There is currently no evidence that dogs or other domestic animals play a significant role in the transmission of the virus responsible for COVID-19 or that they become sick.

We will remain open to provide ongoing care for you and your pets but will do so in a manner that also protects the community.

This is a challenging time for everyone but we thank you for your patience and understanding. Together we can continue to provide the care your pets require whilst doing our part to slow the spread.
