*Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update*
As we all begin to come to terms with moving forward through this pandemic as guided by the government, my thoughts are with those who have lost family and friends during this crisis. I also pay tribute to those who have worked tirelessly to keep all of us safe.
Following the governments statement on the 10th May, and updated guidance from veterinary professional associations, I have been advised by NAVP (the professional association I am accredited to), that I am allowed to begin a phased return to work. Government and professional guidelines reiterate this is not a return to work as we knew it before lockdown. A risk assessment will need to be conducted on a case by case basis prior to a consultation, putting the necessary and appropriate measures in place in order to minimise risk to all involved.
Visits can only take place if I am able to effectively and safely support the animal, whilst maintaining social distancing and adhering to strict hygiene protocols, in order to follow professional and government guidance to safeguard both the client's health and my own health. This requires confidence in the risk assessment of yourself, myself and the public, including consideration of PPE & movement of people to, from & around the premises.
*The Future of My Services*
Due to a variety of factors, unfortunately I have made the sad decision to wind down my business to make new steps in my career pathway, in order to financially support myself going forward. This has been a very difficult decision to make and has taken a vast amount of thought, but it is the right decision for me and my future.
Unfortunately, as a result of this decision, I am not taking on any new clients. I can however, point you in the direction of the association I am accredited to–NAVP where you can find members based on location and the animals they treat.

At this current time, I will continue to support existing clients and their animals where possible (see above) if requested.
