COVID 19 Update 22 October 2020


During the forthcoming Lockdown we will continue to carefully provide the services we already are doing.

However we will tighten up on our distancing .....

~ clients will be asked to stay outside the buildings

~ your pet can be taken inside for a full examination as required

~ this will include euthanasia. We are sorry, but you will have to say your goodbyes and leave them with us 

~ if you wish to rearrange upcoming appointments please call us, otherwise assume your booking still stands.

~ we intend to go back to ‘the current normal’ on Monday 9th.
