Due to the Covid-19 outbreak - we have had to make changes to the way we must run the Clinic in order to protect the safety and welfare of both our staff and our clients. We would ask you to please note the following arrangements.
We are taking appointments for vaccinations / neutering / dentals and other such regular procedures.
Please feel free to contact us by phone or by email to arrange your appointments.
For food orders and repeat prescriptions we would be grateful if, as before, you would phone / email us with your orders so that we can have them ready for you and avoid any unnecessary delays on arrival at the clinic.
Please continue to socially distance when visiting the Clinic. Please avail of the hand sanitizer available at the front desk.
Thank you to all our clients and their pets, for their understanding, patience and assistance in helping us adapt to the changes that we had to implement to the way we run the Clinic over the last number of months.
The weather has been kind and this has helped us greatly in being able to meet with you all and consult from the garden and car park and thus manage to socially distance.
We are extremely grateful.

🦠 Corona Virus Update 🦠
We have made a few more changes to our policies over the last week to protect our staff and our clients. 👩🏻⚕️🧑🏽⚕️👨🏻⚕️
🐶🩺We are only available to see 🚑emergencies and essential appointments.
🐱Non essential appointments are for example booster vaccinations, nail trims, clinical check ups.
🐰We are asking clients on arrival in the car park to phone and let us know they are there and to wait in their car for the vet/ nurse. We will then take your pet from you. Unfortunately we are not allowing clients to be present with their pet. We will treat your pet and then return them back to you, inform you to what we have done and what/if further treatment is needed.
🐹Essential appointments are:
Puppy, kitten vaccines, any type of injury that needs urgent attention, animals in pain. If you have any queries you can contact the clinic and speak to a nurse who can further advise you.
🥼 💉We are not performing any non essential surgeries until further notice such as neutering, lump removals (unless deemed necessary by the vet).
💊We are still dispensing medication and providing pet food.
For medication please call 24hrs beforehand and order your pet's prescription and we are asking where possible to pay over the phone before arriving at the clinic.
📱💳Where possible payment over the phone is recommended.
Thank you to all our clients for you patience with us at this time, hopefully we can all stop the virus together and we can get back to normality as soon as possible.
