We know your pets need the vet but we also strive to create a safe environment for you and your family. In order to keep you and your pets healthy at this trying time we are implementing the following measures.
If you are:
Unwell with and cold or flu like symptoms
Have travelled overseas in the last 14 days or

Please call us and discuss how we can arrange an alternate option for your pets treatment before entering the building or inviting us into your home.
Some of the options we can provide are collecting your pet from your home or the car park and discussing their treatment over the phone.
Medications and products can be delivered to your doorstep or letterbox. We are also more than happy to bring them out to the car park. Please call ahead to assure items are in stock and ready for you and again when you arrive.
At your visit
We ask that if you are early for your appointment you wait in your car until your appointment time.
Please utilise social distancing and ask that you visit the clinic with the minimum number of people possible and rub hands with the available sanitiser when entering the building.
If you have your children with you please call us from the car and we will be more than happy to bring out what you need and come and collect your pet.
We also request that you take advantage of contactless transactions and avoid cash wherever possible.
Corona virus and your pet...
The Australian Veterinary Association advises that "at this stage there is still no evidence that dogs can play a role in the spread of human disease, or that they become sick."
Canine corona virus is a completley diffent disease and does not cause respiratory signs.
Common sense and hand washing is as always important, particularly for children when handling pets.
By working together we can continue to care for your pets and keep us all healthy.
Your understanding is greatly appreciated,
Dr Laura Schram
