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 Hospital:

Please continue follow social distancing practices and guidance from our staff.

To comply with new government restrictions and advice we are now implementing the following:

 

  • Masks compulsory

  • Only one owner to come into the hospital with your pet.

  • Please ring the hospital when you arrive, wait outside and we will come out to you.                        

If our waiting room is busy you may be asked to wait outside until we are ready to see your pet.

We understand this may be hard in certain circumstances but we are here to help and are happy to discuss options with you.

If you are feeling unwell please do not attend the Hospital.

Repeat Scripts and food:

Please phone to organise your scripts and food in advance.

  • Once filled our staff will contact you and request payment over the phone where possible.

  • When picking up your request please phone the clinic when you arrive and one of our staff members will bring it out to you.

Are veterinary clinics classed as essential?

Yes veterinary services are classed as essential.

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.

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.

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.

 

We want to continue to offer your pets the care they need at this time

while doing our part to keep the community safe.

Thank you for for your understanding and cooperation.
