Teleconsultations

For clients who are unable to attend the surgery due to self isolation or shielding, we are still offering teleconsultations to ensure your pet is able to receive veterinary attention. Please contact us on 01900 826666 to arrange a teleconsultation.

Pets and Covid-19

Whilst there have been some reports of some animals testing positive for Covid-19 around the world, there remains no evidence that pets play a significant role in spreading the disease. However we would advise sensible hygiene precautions and hand washing after contact with your pets as it may be possible for them to carry virus on their coats.

Please continue check our website and Facebook page for the latest updates as the situation evolves.

Thank you for working with us to ensure your pet can receive treatment whilst keeping staff and clients safe
