Taking your pet to the vet
Vets will continue to provide emergency, and some other, services. You should contact your vet before travelling to check that a visit is essential and to ensure you understand the arrangements at the surgery.
Animal physiotherapy or hydrotherapy
Animal physiotherapy and hydrotherapy may take place either indoors or outdoors, provided physical distancing guidance can be adhered to. This would include:
- remaining at least 2 metres from the owners of animals being treated
- practicing good hygiene at all times, with cleaning of any equipment used before the next appointment, and with regular handwashing both before and after any contact
In an indoor setting, animals from no more than a single household may be treated together at a time.
Boarding kennels and catteries
Boarding kennels and catteries may operate normally, provided they follow the guidance on physical distancing for their staff and owners when animals arrive or are collected.
