D&T COVID-19 (Coronavirus) 4th May update

Following the Government’s recent guidelines, we can confirm that our practices now offer a full range of services for our patients, whilst still adhering to COVID-19 safety guidelines.

As a practice, we have adopted a contactless approach to appointments. We will continue to provide the same high-quality services with the same friendly, caring people, just delivered in a way that protects our clients and teams from local outbreaks of COVID-19.

We are working in smaller teams to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and therefore lead times for appointments may be a little longer than usual. Please bear with us at this time – we will do our best to make your appointment as smooth as possible.

Guidance for attending your appointment:

To keep everyone safe, please help us by:

  • Maintaining social distancing
  • Wearing a face covering where possible both inside the practice and on our car park. If this is not possible, please contact us before your appointment so that we can discuss how best to support you and your pet
  • Sanitising your hands before and after your pet’s appointment
  • Using contactless payment methods wherever possible
  • Maintaining a safe distance from the practice entrance until you are contacted by a member of our team. If you are on foot, please ensure you are wearing suitable outdoor clothing to remain warm in cold weather spells. If you arrive by car, please remain inside the vehicle awaiting further instruction.

When attending an appointment with your pet:

  • We are now able to allow a limited number of clients on site with their pets
  • When you attend please stop at the wait here sign at reception to be directed by a member of the team.
  • We politely request only one client per pet due to the restricted numbers on site.
  • If we are not able to allow you into the building due to current numbers, we will still happily collect your pet from your vehicle to prevent you having to wait unnecessarily.
  • Please Inform Reception if you would prefer to continue with a contactless service and have us collect your pet from you outside.

Thank you for your continued understanding during this time. We remain committed to delivering the best care for your pet, and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
