Freedom day! Why you won’t be noticing any differences when you visit the vets
Monday 19th July 2021 is being hailed as Freedom Day. We don’t want to be party poopers but we won’t be making any changes at the surgery just yet.
Our team is not yet fully vaccinated and for the next month at least any close contact with a client who tests positive can still result in a large proportion of our team needing to quarantine. You’re keeping us really busy at the moment and we just could not continue to open the doors every day if that were to happen. That and the fact that the risk of infection remains and some of us are in the high risk category and several of us have high risk family members.
So for the next month at least we will continue to ask you to wait in your car or under the shelter with your pets and we will come out to you for a chat then take your pet in for an examination. Of course we miss chatting to you in the consulting room but i think it’s fair to say that most pets are actually really relaxed on their own with us as anxiety can transmit to them from you.
When you arrive at the surgery, come to the side window where our reception team can check you in. Then take a seat in your car or under the shelter at the back of the building and we will come and find you. After we’ve examined your pet we will come back out to discuss our findings and make a plan with you.
We will be wearing masks and we would prefer that you would too so that we can talk properly face to face. For anyone with hearing difficulties, please just say. We’re happy to swap our masks for a visor.
The pandemic isn’t over yet so let’s stay safe and help us stay open!
