We will remain open, Monday to Friday 9am – 8pm, Saturday and Sunday, 9am – 5pm as we are considered as an essential business.

To keep all our staff and all our clients safe, therefore ensuring we can stay open, we are asking for our client’s co-operation upholding these measures:

• Please do not attend the surgery if you are showing any symptoms of Coronavirus or are self-isolating please do not attend the surgery. Please call to speak to one of the team for advice

• When attending your appointment, we request 1 client per pet only inside the surgery.

• We are restricting the number of clients we have in the building at any one time. (1 client in the waiting area, and 1 client behind the barrier). All other clients, please inform us of your arrival so we can mark you as waiting. Please wait in your car or outside until there is space to safely to come in the building or you are requested to come in by a member of staff.
