How will Covid 19 affect our services to you?

Veterinary Clinics are considered essential services so we will not be closing.

However, for the time that the alert status in NZ is level 4, we will not be carrying out annual health checks and vaccinations, free dental checks or non-urgent services.  We will continue to provide the following services:

  • Treatment of sick or injured animals.
  • Sale of pet food, worming and flea treatments.
  • Dispensing of medications.
  • Completion of puppy and kitten vaccination programmes

Our goal is to ensure the clinic stays open but to minimise the risk to our staff and clients.  The steps we have taken so far are:

  • Inactivating our on-line and phone app booking system to ensure we can discuss in person the best way to deal with your pet health issue.
  • Splitting our staff into two teams who will work on different days (which will mean we have less time slots available for visits).
  • Providing hand sanitiser for clients to use prior to or on entering the clinic.
  • Dealing with pet health problems via telephone consults wherever appropriate.
  • Extending the periods that we can dispense long term medications before requesting a revisit (this is based on NZVA current recommendations).

We would ask you to do the following:

  • If you are unwell or in mandatory self-isolation please do not visit the clinic.  Phone us so that we can discuss how best to help you.
  • When visiting the clinic notify reception you have arrived and then wait in your car until called into the clinic for your consultation.
  • Before entering the clinic please use the hand sanitiser provided at the door.
  • Only handle or pick up stock on the waiting room shelves that you are definitely buying.
  • Have only one person bring the pet to the clinic.   Do not bring other family members or friends (or other pets that do not require treatment) unless absolutely necessary.
  • Maintain at least a 1 metre distance between yourself and any staff or other clients while interacting with them, and a 2 metre distance if not interacting.
  • If you wish to purchase pet food, flea or worming products, or pick up a repeat prescription, please ring in advance so that we can have it ready for you.
We prefer electronic payment rather than cash.
