COVID-19 - Service Update

8th January 2021

Our vets are still out on the road in the frost and fog ensuring that we can provide essential veterinary care when you need us. We are strictly following government and BEVA guidelines to ensure that our clients and vets remain as safe as possible while we are attending your horses.
Please call us to discuss your veterinary needs as all cases will be risk assessed on a case-by-case basis. 01749 830666 or emergency pager 07623 984669.

Where physical appointments are required, we request only one handler for visits, as well as the usual, face masks, hand sanitisation or gloves and social distancing. We take these bio security measures to protect ourselves and our clients when we attend horses, and would ask our clients to do likewise, thank you.

Due to the government update and the coming lockdown, we would like to reassure all our clients that we will continue to support them. We will certainly be open for emergency and urgent cases. We will have more information as to the routine procedures that we will be able to support in the coming days, so please bear with us as the  Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons and government guidance is updated for the current scenario.

13 April 2020

Our regulatory body the RCVS and BEVA have recently issued updated guidelines for vets treating horses. 

These are guidelines not rules so are open to interpretation. The principals behind these guidelines are that all interactions be thoroughly risk assessed, weighing the risks against the potential benefits. Each situation, be it an emergency or a vaccination presents a unique set of risks vs potential benefits. 

We at SEP take the Covid19 pandemic very seriously and consequently are employing social distancing practices and other bio security measures to protect ourselves and our clients when we attend horses, and would ask our clients to do likewise. 

In the light of the recent guidance, by taking responsible measures we are able to attend horses that are not emergencies. Each case needs be assessed on an individual basis. To this end we suggest that you call the office or one of the vets to discuss the situation. It may be that we are able to attend even non urgent calls given suitable distancing procedures or even conduct a video consultation to avoid any risk.

We thank you for your understanding and assure you we will continue to do our utmost to look after your horses’ needs in a responsible safe fashion.

Keep safe!
