From time to time your pet’s illness or symptoms may fall outside the expertise that can be provided by your general practice vet. To offer your pet the best possible care your vet may ask your permission to refer your pet to a specialist or referral centre.
Following the A-level results last week, we always get a spike in people asking this question! And of course, this year is going to be very different from normal, with the pandemic making it difficult to access work experience or interviews, and the A Level results being calculated, recalculated, appealed, argued over, and generally a mess.
With the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases increasing rapidly on a daily basis, the UK government has been forced to take extraordinary measures in an attempt to slow down the spread of this viral pandemic. The general public have been instructed to remain at home and avoid all unnecessary social contact. This includes working from home wherever possible; however for certain key professions this is not possible.
The coronavirus outbreak in the UK is happening - this isn’t something we see on our television screens from far away places. Our neighbours, friends and families are at risk. Many of us know people who are suspected or confirmed cases. And carrying on as normal, while admirable in many circumstances, is unhelpful and dangerous now. All businesses and professions are affected by it, but in this blog we’re going to look at how vet practices are likely to be affected, and what you can do to help them until we all come out the other side.
In my last blog I talked about my life at Vet School, and how much I loved the course.

Despite such a great course, student life in general, for me, has not been wholly positive. This is partly down to the course itself, partly down to our campus, but I think mostly down to my own personality and life.
