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.

Veterinary Nurse

‘I started on the path to becoming a veterinary nurse a bit later in life having previously worked for insurance companies and housing associations amongst other roles, none of which felt like the career for me.

Whilst volunteering for a local dog shelter in 2016 I got talking to people who worked within the veterinary care industry. This prompted me to undertake some work experience within vet practice and I have never really looked back! I went on to do a diploma in animal management then began a veterinary nursing degree and am due to graduate in July 2021. I enjoy how varied the role is with so many different skills required and no two days the same. It is also hugely rewarding being able to contribute to the health and welfare of all our patients.

I have always loved animals and currently have a 7 year old border collie called Digger. In my spare time I enjoy sport and being outdoors exploring the countryside. My time at work is split between the Poulton, Garstang and Cottam branches and I hope to continue with Lanes Vets following completion of my studies.

Due to the current Coronavirus pandemic we are unable to organise any events or show you any local events as the majority have been cancelled. As soon as we get some dates for events we will be sure to let you all know and ensure they are advertised.
