Due to the Covid-19 pandemic we are currently limited on the services we can provide, in accordance with the guidance set out by our governing body.
We are therefore only able to see particular cases and undertake certain procedures. We are still unable to allow clients into the practice. However, we are open and have a dedicated team here should you need any advice, telephone consultations, triage or repeat medications. Please do not hesitate to call us to ask to discuss your pets individual case and we can advise you accordingly.
We are running on a skeleton staff so please bear with us if you are trying to ring in, as we may be delayed in answering calls due to emergencies.
