COVID 19

Dear clients, in these unprecedented times we wanted to keep you updated in regards to our clinic. We are still looking after the health and welfare of all our patients but will be operating slightly differently for the foreseeable future, to help keep our staff and clients safe and to do our bit to help minimise the spread of the virus.

 

We ask that in both clinic and home visits, only one person is present at the appointment. If a second person is needed to help transport the horse, we ask they remain with the vehicle during the appointment.

We ask you to respect, where possible, the 1.5m rule.

There is hand sanitiser available, and ask clients to use it prior to, and after their appointment with the vet.

 

Furthermore, clients will no longer be allowed into our reception. If arriving for a clinic appointment, please let us know you are here by presenting yourself to the glass reception door or ringing  63911000 if no one is present in the office.

 

If you need to pick up any medication, please ring ahead and we will have it ready for you in our medication pick up box. We will invoice your monthly account if you have one, or ask you to pay over the phone. If paying for appointments or medication at the clinic, we ask to please avoid cash payments if possible.

 

Lastly, if you are feeling unwell, been in contact with someone who is unwell or been overseas/on a cruise ship in the last 14 days, we ask you to let us know. We may ask for someone else to attend the appointment in your place.
