As an essential service, Berwick Veterinary Hospital will remain OPEN during the upcoming lockdown period.

Several policies are now in place to minimise the risk of COVID-19 exposure:

  • All surfaces within our consultation rooms are thoroughly disinfected between appointments


  • All common surfaces including door handles, telephones and eftpos machines are thoroughly disinfected at regular intervals.


  • Hand sanitisers are placed throughout the clinic for use by staff and clients


  • Any client who is feeling unwell or is worried about coronavirus can contact the clinic prior to arrival and a consultation will be tailored to protect both the client and others from possible exposure.


  • We ask clients to:
    • Limit the number of people presenting your pet to just one owner
    • When arriving for your appointment, please wait in your car
    • Please phone us from your car on arrival and we can return the phone call to welcome you into the clinic when we are ready to see your pet
    • Notify our team prior to arrival if you are feeling unwell
    • We are offering FREE delivery of pet food, parasite control and medications to local homes for those clients who are unwell or worried about the Coronavirus (begins Monday 23rd March)


  • Any staff members that have recently travelled overseas or to an affected area are quarantined for a 14-day period and will return to work following medical clearance.


  • Any staff members displaying cold or flu-like symptoms are asked to stay home for the duration of their illness.


  • Our team has been divided into 2 groups, running for 12-hour shifts. This will minimise unnecessary contact between our team. Please be patient with us during this time.


  • There have been some changes to the structure of our consultations. Rest assured that your pet will receive a complete and thorough examination and the outcomes will be communicated with you effectively.

If you have any questions please give us a call (03) 9707 2655
