Covid-19 Update – 2021

Given the latest lockdown restrictions and government and RCVS advice to reduce non-essential travel and contacts, we are currently having to reduce some of the services we offer.

We are still here 24 hours a day to see our registered client’s sick and injured pets.

We are working hard to try and maintain our high quality and efficient service but please be aware that waiting times for appointments, repeat prescriptions, and for telephone reports are likely to be increased. This is due to the time-consuming procedures we have to follow between consultations to keep staff and clients safe. In addition, we are often working with reduced staff numbers, often at short-notice as staff self-isolate due to Covid. We understand that this may be frustrating, but our staff are here to help, and aggressive behaviour or verbal abuse will not be tolerated.

Thank you again for your support and please stay safe.

Some pets enjoy human contact more than others, so you will need to choose your pet carefully. Important factors to consider are appropriate diet, small mammals can be herbivorous, omnivorous or carnivorous and the choice of diet is vitally important for the well being of your pet. Did you know that a rodents teeth grow continuously throughout its life, 1-2cm every month? The correct diet will prevent problems occurring.

Correct husbandry is very important, housing should be thought about carefully, offering adequate space and the provision of toys, hides and cage furniture, these help to encourage natural behaviours and reduce stress. The provision of heat and correct substrates must be considered.

Register your pet with your local vet even if it is perfectly healthy, you will know where to go in an emergency and your vet will be able to give you advice on routine health care. The key to recognising illness in your pet is to know what your pet is like when it is well. Often an owner will be able to detect subtle changes in their pet’s behaviour or appetite that indicate illness well before anyone else can.

Remember, it’s FREE to register your pet with Lanes Vets and you can do it online >
