Updated opening hours

From today our Paignton and Dawlish surgeries will be closing at 7pm. Our Teignmouth and Torquay surgeries remain open from 9-6.

Coronavirus 7 – January 2021

In line with the governments’ strong ‘stay at home’ message, veterinary practices are remaining open to focus on providing services that are essential for animal health and welfare or public health, including to relieve pain and suffering.

We will risk assess each case and exercise our clinical and professional judgement to decide whether face-to-face treatment or care is essential at this time, whether services could be provided remotely, or whether treatment can be safely postponed until after the lockdown. Remote services, such as teleconsultations, will be charged for.

Please always call the practice first to arrange the best approach to meet your pet’s needs at this time. As with all aspects of life during the Covid-19 pandemic, you should follow social distancing measures when interacting with your veterinary surgery. This will mean you needing to wait outside and allow your vet to assess your pet alone.

Across the UK, members of the public must, by law, wear a face covering in veterinary practices, unless they are exempt for age, health, or equality reasons. We request that everyone wears a face covering when accessing our services.

Vets are working hard to balance animal health and welfare, public health, your safety and the safety of their teams. As always, decisions will vary between practices and in different parts of the country.

We’re asking the public to respect our veterinary teams and understand that they are doing their very best in difficult circumstances.

We are delaying all annual boosters until they are nearing 15 months and our reminders will be sent with these new timings. If your pet’s booster is approaching 15 months since the last one we are able to continue the protection afforded by vaccinations. We are permitted to perform all primary courses for kittens and puppies. As a practice we have taken the decision to delay dog castrations unless there is a medical reason. Cat neutering and bitch spays are permitted.

In some cases we will initially assess the animal remotely via a telephone consultation. This will be chargable as normal. If we then decide that your pet needs to be seen there will be no further charge for this physical examination.

If you are self-isolating due to having or being in contact with coronavirus we request you do not come to the surgery so that we can keep our other clients and staff safe.

Coronavirus update 6

Due to the continued lock-down as announced by the British Government, Bay Vet Group, under advice from the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons and British Veterinary Association will now be able to perform some routine work as well as the urgent and emergency service already in place at our branches.

Primary vaccinations of cats, dogs and rabbits are now allowed.  Annual vaccinations for rabbits and dogs are now allowed.  Adult cat vaccinations can be done when 14 months has elapsed since their last booster. Neutering where incest is possible or in multi-pet households can now be performed. These will be performed at our Torquay and Teignmouth surgeries to maintain separate teams.  BOOK ONLINE or call

We will still be maintaining social distance and owners will not be allowed in the building.  We will continue to consult via phone and video and if we deem it a requirement to see your pet we will arrange to be seen at either or Dawlish or Paignton branches.

We will continue to offer courier delivery of all repeat medications or they can be collected by prior arrangement.  These changes are to protect the health and well-being of our team and clients.  These measures are to help improve social distance and reduce the chance of viral spread.  We request you respect these rules so that we can stay healthy and continue to be able to treat your pets if required.

Coronavirus and your pet

We recognise that there maybe questions around animal transmission of Coronavirus Covid19.

There has been a single reported case of a dog having become infected by Covid19 in the news recently. However, the World Organisation for Animal Health states that “There is no evidence that companion animals, such as dogs, play a role in the spread of this human disease or that they become sick.”

If you are diagnosed with Covid-19, the American Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that you restrict contact with your pets as a precautionary measure. If you have to care for a sick pet, it is recommended that you take some basic precautionary measures. Wash your hands before and after any interaction with your pet and wear a facemask.

In the very unlikely event that your pet shows clinical signs, please do not bring it in to the practice. Please ring us for further advice. Visit our “Contact us” page for all our contact details.

As the situation changes, we may issue further updates.
