Updated: January 2021
Following the Government’s lockdown announcement on 4 January 2021 we have updated our website with details of the veterinary services we are currently able to provide.
Covid-19 safety measures, like social distancing, mean we can’t operate our Pet Hospitals at full capacity. So, we only have a limited number of appointments available for people to visit our Pet Hospitals each day.
We’ve had to make the difficult decision to reduce the range of services we offer, so that our vets can use these appointments to treat life-threatening emergencies. As a result, we are not providing preventive treatments such as neutering, vaccinations, microchipping, flea and worming treatments, and routine clinics.
All non-urgent appointments will be done remotely over the telephone. Pet medications can be provided by post or collected at our hospitals. If you attend a Pet Hospital for an emergency appointment you must wear a face covering.
We will contact registered clients directly if there are any changes to local services.
What to do if you're worried about your pet
Our Pet Hospitals are prioritising emergency and urgent treatments at the moment, and providing as many services through remote appointments as possible. We are doing our best to provide other more routine care, however this is dependent on capacity and may vary week to week.
If you’re worried about your pet please follow the steps below:
- Check our Pet Health Hub for information about your pet’s health
- In a life-threatening emergency, please call your local Pet Hospital directly
- For any other issues, please use our call back request form and someone will call you back
- If you are asked to attend a Pet Hospital for an emergency appointment, you must wear a face covering. If you are exempt or unable to wear a face covering our staff will ask you to wait outside while your pet receives veterinary care, to help protect our staff, you and other pet owners.
