With lockdown expected to continue for some weeks, the British Veterinary Association (BVA) has issued new guidelines with regard to providing essential veterinary care during the Covid-19 pandemic, enabling more routine preventative procedures to be undertaken in practice to keep pets safe.

Vaccinations

We are now able to carry out primary vaccination courses for puppies and kittens, and also year 1 boosters for puppies and kittens, due to the increased risk of disease outbreak over a longer period of time.

It’s recommended all rabbits are vaccinated given increased seasonal risk to their health.

We are also offering dog booster vaccination for dogs that are 13-15 months since their last vaccination.

Please call the practice to book.

Neutering

BVA guidance advises that we can carry out neutering procedures where considered essential for pet health and welfare and population control. This will mostly refer to cats and rabbits, but will be assessed on a case by case basis. Please call us for advice.

Emergency and Essential Care

We are continuing to see pets for emergency and essential care. Video and phone consultations are available and we can then advise whether we need to see your pet.

Please note:

We are working with a reduced team and are continuing to follow strict protocols to ensure everyone is kept as safe as possible at this time. All queries should still be made by phone, as our practice door remains locked to deter people from calling in at this time.

Should we need to see your pet, strict social distancing measures are in place. See the FAQs page on our website for more information.

If you are unwell or have been in contact with anyone showing symptoms of Covid-19 and are in isolation and your pet needs to be seen, it’s really important that you let us know. We can then discuss the best course of action to help you and your pet and keep our team safe.

If you have any pet worries please give us a call on 01922 411755. We’re here to help.
