An update on Covid-19
The government has announced that new cases and deaths due to Covid-19 are on the decline, that is good news. We are now waiting to see what the new regulations will bring.
In the meantime, we are in the position where human safety outweighs animal welfare and we have to apply social distancing and do our very best to keep people safe and still look after animal welfare – a challenging task.
Clients at our practice are asking questions based around vaccination and neutering. This is understandable as vaccination dates start to pass and puppies and kittens get older and become more likely to have their own puppies and kittens!
Our advisory body has put together a guidance sheet for the public to indicate how decisions are made both on vaccination and on neutering. Our vets are currently calling the owners of pets whose vaccinations have lapsed and individually assessing them. Please call and ask to speak to a vet if you are in anyway unsure of what to do, or feel your pet’s vaccination is overdue, please be patient.
I’m afraid it’s still not business as usual, but hope that the interpretation of these important questions is a little more clear.
