COVID-19 Emergency Measures

If you or any member of your household are unwell or have been diagnosed with or are awaiting testing for COVID-19 or otherwise in isolation or in 14 day quarantine after returning from abroad, you must tell us on the phone and we will plan your visit accordingly.


We are open and fully operational but to avoid delays please do not come to the practice for anything without calling us first.

Food and repeat medication orders - please email or send a WhatsApp to 0892345194

In most circumstances we are not admitting people to the practice - we will collect your pet from you outside and drop them back to you.

If you are invited to come in to the practice you must wear a face mask and perform hand hygiene.

We do understand that these measures are frustrating and will lead to delays. We apologise but please be patient with us - we are doing our best to look after you and your little pets whilst also minding the health of your families and our staff. 

If any member of staff demonstrates any symptoms of COVID-19 the practice has to close so please understand the reasons for our safe and cautious approach. A sick vet means no vet.
