Additional In-House Restricitons:

Please note the following in-house restrictions we also have in place:


  1. If arriving for your appointment, please telephone from the car to tell us you have arrived.
  2. If we are busy, we may ask you to come in and collect a pager.  This means you can leave your car and go for a walk with your dog, whilst you wait to see the Vet.  Please do not gather at the front door.
  3. When it is your turn, the animal care assistant (ACA) or nurse will come out and you can discuss your concerns.  The ACA will bring your pet in to see the Vet.
  4. The Vet will perform the examination, and then come out to you after the consultation to discuss their findings.
  5. Waiting in the waiting room is not permitted.
  6. You can enter the building to pay or pay over phone. Where at all possible please pay by card, contactless is available in general. The key pad will be disinfected between people using it. We can also accept bank transfer payment if asked. If ordering food/medications by phone you can pay over the phone at that time.
  7. All visits should be by appointment only. We will see emergencies as fast as we possibly can, as ever, but please call us first. We will be having 15 minute appointments so as to reduce the in-out flow. This may mean we will have somewhat less capacity - please understand if you cannot be seen at the time you prefer.
  8. Due to the current situation, we require 48hrs notice for repeat medications and 72 hrs notice for pet food. Please call us in advance so we can have them ready for you. The nurses can drop your medications or food to the car - just call when you arrive. 
  9. Please be patient with our brilliant and caring staff if there are delays, we are doing our best but all of these extra precautions are going to slow up things a little.
