COVID – 19 continues to have a huge impact on our lives and the world may never be quite the same again. We all stayed home to protect our loved ones and ourselves. Our beloved pets were there for us, keeping us active and providing a much needed source of companionship.
The pandemic, however, has prevented many pet owners from being able to see and speak to their local vet. Many vet practices were forced to revert to emergency services only during the first waves of lockdown and even now, over a year later, it is still difficult to get an appointment with a local vet as they are dealing with the huge backlog of animals needing urgent care and attention.
This is where Vet on the Net steps in. Run by veterinary recruitment specialist, Nicola Baird and accomplished vet, Dr Louise Abuzet MRCVS, Vet on the Net offers online video and phone consultations with experienced, UK registered vets in the comfort of your own home. All the vets on the team have been handpicked to ensure they have the experience, knowledge and people skills to be able to support clients and their pets remotely. Many of the vets also hold further qualifications in areas such as exotic pet medicine, dermatology, internal medicine and emergency and critical care.
An appointment with a vet costs just £24 and are available 7 days a week between 8am and 10pm. Our vets are happy to help with any concerns or questions you may have about your pet, whether that be advice on common and chronic health problems, recommendations for preventative and routine health care or emergency advice on whether you pet needs to be rushed to the emergency vet or can be monitored at home.
Vet on the Net also has a great online shop and pharmacy where you can buy all your pet’s food, accessories and medications for a lot less than going to your vet directly. The pharmacy is closely monitored and regulated by the RCVS (Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons) and VMD (Veterinary Medicines Directorate) and so you know your pet medications are coming from a safe and reputable source. All orders are carefully packed and quickly delivered direct to your door, with free delivery available if you spend £29 and over.
