  • Current Veterinary professional shortage 

    You may be aware that the profession (like many others) is experiencing a widespread shortage of workers. This means that appointments are limited and veterinarians are working longer hours than ever before. We endeavour to accommodate everybody but at times this can simply be an impossible task. We ask for respect and understanding as we continue to do our work.
