A YORK veterinary practice is supporting its patients through the Coronavirus pandemic by providing a medicine delivery service.

Birchwood Veterinary Practice is playing its part during the COVID-19 pandemic by delivering medicines to the doorsteps of some of its clients.

The veterinary practice, based in Gate Helmsley near Dunnington, is delivering prescriptions and preventative products to its clients throughout East Yorkshire and York.

Principal Vet at the practice, Michael Gilbertson, said: “We know this is a difficult time and many of our clients are in the high-risk group and are therefore unable to leave their home for routine activities.

“We realise and understand just how important pets are to people, even more so at the moment because people are not receiving visitors.

“Therefore, if someone’s pet needs medication we will do our best to deliver these to their door, while observing all self-distancing rules.”

The veterinary practice is open for emergency or sick patients on an appointment basis only. If your pet needs urgent attention, call them on 01759 373611.
