Lockdown January 2021 *Update*
We have now received guidance from our regulatory body and as we had hoped, we are permitted to continue to offer veterinary services in order to maintain the health and welfare of our equine patients.
It is however, ever more important for us to balance equine health with human health and as such, we will continue to risk assess our work and ensure that it can be carried out in a way that is not going to compromise the team or you, our clients. If we have concerns we will discuss these with you in advance of the visit and may suggest an alternative approach e.g. a remote consultation if it is appropriate – each case will be different. Should you prefer a remote consult please let us know – everyone’s situation and risk adversity is different!
To help us work safely, please can we ask the following of you:
Please wear a mask and gloves at the visit, the vets will be doing the same
Please help us to maintain social distancing. If it is unsafe for other physical reasons, we will discuss the increasing the level of PPE for both parties.
Please ensure that only one person is present to to handle the horse ( please do not bring children / onlookers/ pets to the visit).
Please inform us in advance of the visit if you are unwell, are self isolating for whatever reason (including through T&T) or think that you may have been in contact with someone who has since become unwell. We will work with you to find a work around so that your horse is still cared for
Medication can still be obtained from the practice during this period but please call us in advance to arrange this if required.
Thank you for your ongoing support helping us to look after our patients safely!Please call, or preferably email the practice ( firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any concerns – we are here to help. Stay safe!
Best wishes from all at Kings Bounty Equine Practice.
