Equine Vaccinations during Covid-19

Good afternoon to all of our equine clients 😊

We are pleased to inform you that following advice from the RCVS we are now able to start administering some vaccinations.

We will be offering appointments for initial vaccine courses (1st, 2nd and 3rd injections) and annual boosters. Unfortunately we will NOT be offering 6 monthly flu vaccinations as this is not currently a priority.

Equine vaccines can ONLY proceed if they can be administered while maintaining 2m social distancing. The horse must be tied up and tolerate having an injection administered without needing to be held by the owner. If your horses temperament will not allow this, please do not call to arrange an appointment at this current time. Our aim is to maintain the health and safety of our clients and our team at all times.

If you or anyone in your household is currently self isolating or suffering from symptoms of COVID-19, please inform the reception team and they will work with you to arrange the safest way for your horse to be vaccinated.

Please be patient during this difficult time as our phone lines are extremely busy and we are working with a reduced team.

Thank you 😊

Vaccines during Covid-19

Good morning from the Haven team 😊

Following recent new guidelines from the RCVS we are pleased to announce that we are now able to start giving vaccinations to your pets at both of our practices.

We must still follow government guidelines for social distancing therefore we have put special measures in place to minimise the risk to human health for both our clients and our team.
We will be prioritising those pets that are more vulnerable:

🐾 puppy 1st and 2nd vaccines
🐾 kitten 1st and 2nd vaccines
🐾 1st year booster vaccines
🐾 rabbit vaccines

We are currently delaying all adult dog and cat annual boosters until mid-May unless they are at a higher risk of infection.

Please contact the surgery to arrange an appointment.

Here is the gorgeous Murphy who was a very brave boy for his 1st vaccine this morning when he came into the practice without his parents to demonstrate social distancing
