Farm Veterinary Care at Levels 2, 3 & 4

September 21, 2021

Hello, Levels 2, 3 & 4! Yes, that is what we have across our practice.farm vet care in levels 2, 3 & 4

Below is information, relevant to those in both levels 2 & 3. If you are one of our clients in the bespoke Level 4 area, please call your normal clinic and we will make a plan as to how we will get supplies to you. Our vets have dispensation to move between the borders to attend to animal health matters so veterinary care will remain consistent.

LEVEL 3

We can provide a full range of veterinary services at Level 3 by following these actions:

  • Keeping a 2-metre distance from you and your staff while on-farm.
  • If you have flu-like symptoms or are in self-isolation, please let us know in advance of the visit, so we can plan accordingly.
  • For most calls, one vet will attend unless doing work that requires additional hands (such as teat sealing). Our Farm Vets & Techs will be wearing masks and we ask you to wear one too.
  • We would prefer to just have one farm worker present. If others are there, they should be >2m away.
  • Prescription consultations and other meetings will now only be able to do by phone or video link.
  • If you need supplies, phone, or even better email your local clinic (this link takes you to their clinic pages where you can find their email addresses). We can have it ready for contactless collection when you arrive, or we may be able to arrange drop-offs for you.
