Veterinarians Declared an Essential Service During COVID-19 Crisis

Friday 27-Mar-2020

The Hon. David Littleproud MP, Minister for Agriculture has this evening released a statement which is very reassuring news for our patients and our clients:

"The Federal Government considers the role of veterinarians essential to the agricultural sector and therefore to our nation's food security but also in protecting companion animals and our nationís wildlife.

"The Federal Government has not put any restrictions on veterinarians other than the practice of social distancing and hygiene practices during the COVID-19 crisis."

Our clinic will be open as normal and able to provide our full range of services.
