4.11.2020 - Lock-down II
As we all approach a second lock-down we will remain open and continue to consult remotely via the car park. This allows us to work in a very secure manner, keeping our clients, staff and all our loved ones as protected as possible. We strive to keep on time with our appointments but inevitably remote consulting as well as clinical presentations will sometimes create delays. When you arrive please stay warm and dry in your car. If you are attending on foot then please wrap up warm and bring a brolly. Text us on 0734 00 55 400 so that we know you have arrived. Further details below.
The practice will remain open with our normal hours, as will our emergency service VetsNow. If you need advice or your pet needs attention we are happy to see you. All medications will be available for collection as usual. We do not know of, or anticipate, any related supply shortages for medications so there is no need to stock up. We are confident that we can maintain our services throughout the second lock-down in the safe manner which we have adopted since before the first lock-down.
During the pandemic there has been more pressure on our phone lines than ever before. Please consider booking an appointment through this website.
We have been heartened by the wonderful support we have had from our clients during the pandemic. With your help the transition to remote consulting via the car park has been remarkably smooth. We have been delighted to have been able to continue to offer all our normal services in a very COVID secure manner.
In order to assist with the governments desire to minimise unnecessary travel we would ask you to combine any reasons to visit into as few journeys as possible. If your reason to visit can be safely delayed until after lock-down we would ask you to do this. If you are unsure then speak to us and we will help you assess how urgent your needs are.
The greatest aid you can give us to enable the smooth running of the practice is to TEXT us when you arrive. Please see the details below about how to attend the practice safely.

In the event of no agreement or extension by 31st December 2020 the current pet passport scheme will stop. All animals travelling would be required to have passed a rabies serology blood test. The earliest you can travel with your pet after a successful blood test is 3 months from the date of sampling.
If you intend travelling you need to start planning in-case there is no agreement reached with the EU. Please contact the surgery to discuss the implications further and to see whether a booster vaccination is recommended prior to any blood sampling (this adds a further 30 days to the process).
