Doing our part to keep pets, clients and our staff healthy during COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak

Updated: 03.11.2020

Davies Veterinary Specialists is fully open and seeing all cases referred to us in all 12 of our specialist disciplines and support teams*.

In light of the recent government announcement, we want to reassure you that Davies Veterinary Specialists is still open. We are here to support our referring practices, clients and patients, and we will continue to deliver our services with safety measures in place.

The team has worked hard to ensure Davies is fully compliant with COVID-19 social distancing rules. The team has all necessary PPE equipment and are following new procedures to protect against the COVID-19 infection. This will mean team members on site will be seen wearing face masks and following stringent cleaning and hand washing procedures, as well as many other new risk reducing protocols.

On arrival, pet owners will speak to a member of our team to ensure they are following our procedures to reduce risk throughout their visit.

Prior to all appointments our client care team will be in touch with pet owners to discuss the appointment and what to expect. If a remote consultation is preferred and appropriate this can be arranged.

If you have any further questions regarding how Davies will be protecting against the spread of infection, please email

*All Davies services are open, these include: Orthopaedics, Ophthalmology, Internal Medicine, Neurology, Oncology, Cardiology, Anaesthesia, Therapy and Fitness Centre, Pain Clinic,  Physiotherapy, Soft Tissue Surgery, Cardiology, Dermatology, Diagnostic Imaging, Veterinary Nursing and Client Care.


If you are a pet owner and you now have an appointment to visit Davies Veterinary Specialists.

(Please note when you have been referred to Davies, a member of our team will be in touch to schedule your appointment in advance.)

If you are visiting Davies, the following precautions are in place to protect everyone who works in and visits our practice:

If you’ve been exposed to COVID-19, had close contact with someone who has, or you’re experiencing symptoms (new persistent cough and/or fever), and your pet needs veterinary care, please call us. We will be able to advise you on how your pets can receive the care they need.

If you have been self-isolated with COVID-19 and have recently visited Davies, please let us know as soon as possible. This is so we can implement measures to protect our staff and other clients.

When you arrive, please wait outside and call our reception team to notify them of your arrival.

We will advise you of how we can safely take your pet into the practice to be examined.

We request that you remain in your car or outside of the practice, where possible, to protect the health and wellbeing of our staff. We will call you during the consultation to discuss any appropriate treatment options.

If your pet is hospitalised at our facility, we are asking clients not to visit their pet at this time.

If you need to change any appointments because you are in isolation, please call us and we will rearrange these for you.

We are following the government’s most recent advice regarding the measures we need to take to help control the spread of COVID-19.
