Latest Update – January 2023
We are so thrilled to have been allowing clients back into the consultation with their pets!
We kindly request that clients adhere to the government recommendations:
- Please do not attend the surgery if you are testing positive for COVID-19 or are generally feeling ill
- If you prefer to wear a mask, feel free! If you feel more comfortable with us wearing a mask whilst we are providing service, just ask.
- Make use of the hand sanitiser available at reception
- Choose contactless payment if possible
As before, do not attend the clinic if you have any symptoms of COVID-19 or are currently in isolation. Please call us on 745999 (or 07700 722994 out of hours) and we will arrange a way for your pet to be seen.
Covid-19 Keeping Pets Safe
First and foremost, there is no evidence to show that animals can pass COVID-19 to humans.
Pets may act as a ‘fomite’ for the virus, meaning that if they come into contact with the virus it may survive for a period of time on their fur – this is more of a concern to veterinary staff when treating animals from COVID-19 positive households. It is advisable however, not to touch animals that do not live with you and to always practice good hand hygiene.
