Lockdown 2.0 November 5th 2020
Parkhill Vets would like to reassure all our clients that we will be open throughout the lockdown period to provide you with all your veterinary needs. We aim to maintain all our services at the practice with enhanced biosecurity in place. We will follow guidelines from our governing bodies and if anything changes we will advise you of any changes we make to our service.
Our opening hours will remain unchanged.
We must ensure our team remains safe so that we can continue to provide our service and therefore will request that any client who enters the practice wears a face covering, uses our hand sanitizer and maintains a 2 metre distance from our staff.
Please always phone before coming to the practice and please do not attend the practice if you or anyone in your household are Shielding, Self Isolating, or Symptomatic. If you are awaiting a Covid test result please do not attend either. If you cannot attent the practice please do not worry as we will endeavour to help you the best we can, just give us a call on 01937 582025.
For the time being we will go back to accepting only card or BACS payments. To reduce numbers in the waiting room and time spent in the practice we will not be taking payments at the reception desk.
Our telephone lines have been busier than ever and we have put in extra lines. Please bare with us if you cannot get through immediately- we are in, but probably just tied up with other calls.
Our system of parking in a numbered bay and phoning to let us know you have arrived will continue. A vet or nurse will come to your car when we are ready to see you and escort you into the practice. We are happy for clients to remain outside if they are concerned about coming into our building and are happy to consult outside if you would prefer.
We are proud to be a 100% independent practice and have been so for 100 years now ever since George "Seaton" Powley put up his plate on North Street, Wetherby in 1920. As ever, our emergency service will be available to our registered clients operating from our Parkhill site. Our emergency teams will be there if you need them. We do not out source any of our "out of hours" emergency work to corporate providers so please be reassured that you and your pet can stay local if an emergency crops up.
Our staff are working exceptionally hard to keep our service running as smoothly as it can at this difficult time and we are grateful for your patience and understanding.
Laparoscopic "Keyhole" Surgery (March 2018)
In line with our commitment to improving patient care and the services we provide at Parkhill Vets Ltd, we are proud to announce the arrival of our new state of the art laparoscopy unit.
The significant investment we have made in this equipment will enable us to perform minimally invasive neutering (spay) operations using laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery. This technique is performed through two small incisions in the abdominal wall approximately 5mm long and compared to the more conventional, full surgical "open abdomen" approach, the recovery is quicker with less pain and discomfort. External sutures are often not required. In addition to neutering we are also now able to perform minimally invasive exploratory investigations of the abdomen and take organ biopsies where indicated.
Please follow this link to our services page where you can read more about this exciting new technique.
Vaccination Amnesty 2018
The canine vaccine amnesty 2018 has now finished. We are pleased to announce that the amnesty was very successful this year and we manged to re-start 54 dogs on their vaccinations. In addiiton to protecting them against Parvovirus, Hepatitis, Distemper and Leptospirosis we also picked up other disease conditions requiring attention during the pre vaccination health checks. Thanks to all owners who brought their dogs in this year.
Located in state of the art premises at Parkhill on Walton Road, Wetherby. Our friendly team of trained, dedicated staff provide excellent veterinary care and advice.
We are proud to be an RCVS Accredited Practice under the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons Practice Standards Scheme.
