COVID-19

What do I do if I am in quarantine or self-isolation and my pet is unwell? 

If you are in quarantine, do not break quarantine to take your pet to the veterinarian even if your pet is unwell. By doing this you will put your veterinarian and staff at risk of infection. Ring your veterinary surgery first and ask for advice. Dr Suze is currently still conducting house visits wearing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) if needed and offering telephone/video consultations depending on your personal circumstances. 

Please call us for a chat: 1300 88 25 24 or email: susanna@drszuemyvisitingvet.com.au

 

If your pet needs to be seen, we will be able to work with you to ensure your pet will receive the care they need, whilst keeping safe from COVID-19 infection.
