UPDATE TO COVID 19 PRECAUTIONS AS OF 1ST  FEBRUARY 2022

As of Tuesday 1st February we will be allowing owners into the practice for small animal appointments.  If you have an appointment with your pet please let us know you are here and wait outside until the vet comes to collect you.  If you wish too, you will be allowed into the consultation room for your pets appointment, then can wait in the waiting room to collect any medications and to pay.  

We ask where possible only one person attends the appointment with your pet and please do not enter the practice if you are unwell, have symptoms of Covid 19 or have tested positive.  Please re-arrange your appointment or arrange for someone else to attend on your behalf.

If you are collecting medications please remain outside the practice and we will bring medications out to you.

Written Prescriptions – January 2022

In line with guidance issued by the Veterinary Medicines Directorate (VMD), written prescriptions will now be emailed directly to your pharmacy of choice.  You will no longer be given a hard copy, nor will you be emailed a copy of the prescription to pass on.

Please provide us with the appropriate email address and order number for your pharmacy and prescription order when requesting your prescription. 

Please remember that we need 24hrs notice to produce this for you. We also still require 24 hours notice for repeat medications that you wish to collect direct from the practice.

Many thanks for your understanding.

Lambing Club

Lambing time is fast approaching so why not consider joining our lambing club?!  For a monthly fee you will receive the following:

– free lambings at the surgery (visit fee applies to call outs)

The lambing club can mean significant savings on vet fees during lambing particularly for those farms with larger flocks.
