Coronavirus Emergency – Pets

Please Keep your Dog on its lead when out walking

Its really important at this time that you keep your dog on its lead when you are out walking.

Other people can still be very anxious if a loose dog runs up to them because of a perceived risk of cross infection (although it is still unclear if this can occur).

Make it safe for everyone – keep your dog on its lead when you are out and about.

Veterinary Services

Hopefully everything is back to normal now with your vets. If in doubt, ring the surgery before visiting.
