Can I bring my pet in for an INITIAL VACCINATION COURSE?
A vaccination is not deemed as an emergency and we will not be offering an initial vaccination course. If you have a puppy, we recommend that they are kept inside and not exposed to other dogs. You should book a vaccination course as soon as possible after normal service resumes.
We will review this and provide a further update if the government extends the initial three weeks of enhanced measures to slow the spread of the virus.
Can I bring my pet in for their ANNUAL VACCINATION BOOSTER?
We can postpone this vaccine for up to 3 months after the due date without requiring a restart. During these exceptional times, we ask that you delay the booster until up to a maximum of 3 months after the due date.
Can I bring in my pet for a HEALTH CHECK?
Not at this moment in time because this is not deemed critical. However, depending on availability, we may be able to conduct a health check via a video or telephone consultation. Please ask the practice for further information.
Can I bring my pet in for NAIL CLIPS? Or to have their ANAL GLANDS expressed?
This should be postponed if your pet is not in any danger of feeling discomfort. If you are uncertain whether this is the case, please arrange a video or telephone consultation with the vet or nurse.
Food and medication
How can I get my REPEAT FOOD or MEDICATIONS?
It is important that you continue to give your pet the appropriate food and medication. We are looking at ways of getting these to clients who are due them and postal / delivery services may be an option. Please contact us to make suitable arrangements.
How can I get my FLEA, WORM, TICK and FLYSTRIKE treatments?

Operations and blood tests
Can my pet still have ELECTIVE OPERATIONS such as Neutering and Lumps removals?
These operations are not deemed to be critical during these extraordinary times and we therefore ask that you postpone these procedures, until government guidelines on social distancing change.
What about ULTRASOUNDS and BLOOD TESTS?
We can deem whether this would be critical or not – please contact us to understand more.
