**COVID Update – July 2021**

We are all very excited by the prospect of having more freedom. However even after the restrictions have been lifted please still wear a mask and keep socially distanced when visiting the practice, even if you have been fully vaccinated.

You may wonder why at St Peter’s Vets we are continuing to implement social distancing and wearing PPE. Anyone who steps inside our premises will have to register with the NHS Track & Trace app. If one person gets notified by the app that they have to isolate, it will put us all at risk. The Environmental Department for Health will close us down for 10 days following a notification of a COVID-19 outbreak. This would stop us from providing the essential service of veterinary medical care and welfare to your pets.

We have managed to stay open throughout this pandemic and would hate to come this far through it and have to close at this stage.

Please, please, be respectful that whilst restrictions have eased, COVID-19 has not gone away and continues to circulate. We want to make sure our team can be there for your pets.

All our surgeries are remaining open at their usual times with Petersfield open for Emergencies 24/7.

If you have any immediate health concerns regarding your pet, then please call the surgery. If your enquiry is non-urgent then please email us on: contactus@stpetersvets.co.uk  For all flea/worm treatment and repeat prescription requests, please email: routines@stpetersvets.co.uk

If you are unable to email us or would prefer to contact us by phone, please do so using the following numbers:

PETERSFIELD – 01730 266431

HORNDEAN – 02392 592526

LISS – 01730 894222

We are still not expecting any issues with supply of food or medications so there need to stock up on these. PLEASE BE REMINDED THAT ANY ORDERS FOR MEDICATION OR FOOD SHOULD BE PLACED 24-48 HRS BEFORE COLLECTION. Flea and Worming treatment are available on a “click and collect basis” – please make sure you phone and pay before collection.

If you are shielding, in isolation or unable to get to the surgery then please contact us as we can arrange for a telephone consultation.

IF YOU HAVE AN APPOINTMENT BOOKED WHICH YOU CAN NOT ATTEND THEN PLEASE LET US KNOW ASAP.

Let’s make sure we all continue to stay safe and well. We would like to say a huge thank you to all our amazing clients and staff with their ongoing patience and understanding.🌻
