BSAVA publishes vaccination and neutering advice for practice clients during lockdown

The information sheets outline what a client should expect when contacting their vet to discuss vaccination or neutering for their pet

The BSAVA has produced advice for veterinary practice clients as to whether or not pets can be vaccinated or neutered during the COVID-19 crisis. The information has been produced for vets to pass on to their clients easily, in the form of downloadable Q&A PDFs.

Written by a team of staff and BSAVA volunteers including advanced practitioners and specialists, the information sheets outline what a client should expect when contacting their vet to discuss vaccination or neutering for their pet.

They explain why a vet is required to risk-assess each case and apply their professional and clinical judgement when deciding on the best course of action for the client and pet’s individual circumstances whilst keeping in mind government requirements relating to travel and social distancing.

Professor Ian Ramsey vice president of BSAVA said: “These information sheets should give concerned pet owners the knowledge and reassurance they need about vaccination and neutering protocols during the challenging circumstances of COVID-19 lockdown.

“Produced by the profession, for the profession, they should help busy practitioners in their communication and support for their clients. As Government guidance continues to evolve, we will update the documents accordingly, to ensure pet owners always have access to the latest information to support the health and welfare of their pets.”

The vaccination and neutering advice can be downloaded from BSAVA’s website.

The BSAVA has also produced Guidance for vets on Vaccination and neutering.

For further information for vets can be found in the BSAVA’s COVID-19 resources on the BSAVA website and the BSAVA’s Toolkit for vets in our “BSAVA Resources” section which is part of our dedicated area for vets in practice.
