Vet visits given the ‘all clear’ under new restrictions

With regard to the Victorian Government’s latest set of restrictions, the Australian Veterinary Association offers the following advice:

There are no restrictions on clients attending veterinary clinics – even if the veterinary clinic is not within a 5km radius of their home.

Seeking veterinary care is considered ‘health and care’ and is therefore exempt from curfew hours – although appointments should be made within curfew hours, with emergency consultations only outside curfew hours.

It is advisable to seek confirmation of a veterinary appointment via a letter, email or text message to avoid delays if questioned by enforcement officers whilst traveling to and from a vet.
