CORONAVIRUS UPDATE – November 16, 2020
Sunday opening has temporarily ceased due to Covid 19 Lockdown 2
We are now carrying out routine consultations and surgery now.
All practices are now open at our normal times but will remain temporarily closed on Sundays.
If you have any questions or wish to book an appointment please do not hesitate to contact the practice.
We will assess your pets vaccination needs on an individual basis following a brief assessment over the phone. If we feel this is essential, we will arrange for your pet to receive their vaccination.
For all pets that come to the practice, you the pet owner will still be required to wait in the car/outside whist your pet is being seen by a member of the team.
Thank you for your understanding and continued support. If you have problems contacting us, please either email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact us through our Facebook pages.
CORONAVIRUS & PETS
We have received a number of enquiries from pet owners concerned about Coronavirus in their pets.
Whilst a dog in Hong Kong has tested weakly positive for Covid-19, it has shown no symptoms and it is not yet known whether the dog was truly infected or had been contaminated by an infected person. There is, as yet, no evidence that pets can spread or be affected by coronavirus.
It is however, always sensible to employ good hygiene around pets, for example ensuring you wash your hands after touching them.
If you contract coronavirus, current advice is to avoid contact with your pet, avoiding cuddling and petting them, and where possible asking another person in the household to care for them.
Obviously this a new disease and more information may be available with time. We shall endeavour to keep our clients updated.
SAFEGUARDING YOU & OUR STAFF
Due to the confirmation of cases in the area, please could our lovely clients follow the advice below in order to safeguard our staff:
- If you have symptoms please do not attend for routine appointments.
- When attending for an appointment, please limit the amount of people coming with the pet.
- Please use the hand sanitisers that are on reception.
With huge thanks in advance from Andrea, Jerome and the team
