What We Are Doing

Washing. Diligent and frequent disinfection of surfaces; Frequent hand washing and/or application of hand sanitizer or alcohol (>90%). This also includes frequent disinfection of surfaces.

Social distancing. Please try and limit the amount of people in an exam room.

We understand there are extraordinary circumstances where family members should all be present, but in general we request a one person per animal. This is try to maintain as much distance as possible from other people.

Call on arrival to our clinics. A staff member will come out to you when we are ready.

If you are sick, please do not come into the veterinary clinic. If your pet’s appointment is of an urgent nature, have a friend or family member bring them in.

 

Vets will keep contact to a minimum. Please don’t be offended if we do not shake your hand, on farm or in the clinic.

At barns, please ensure the animal to be examined is in an open area and suitably restrained to ensure our vets have minimal contact with other people.

 

For our large animal clients; make a list of people you can trust to care for your animals should you fall ill. Consider limiting entry to your barns.
