The 5th Emergency service - we’re still here for your pets!
We would like to assure all of our clients that the Oxford Cat Clinic is currently open as normal during the Coronavirus (Covid 19) outbreak and at present we are continuing to provide our usual service and opening hours. We will be posting updates on Facebook and our website, and sending you e-mail updates as the situation develops.
Reducing Spread of the Virus within the Clinic: We continue to maintain our high standards of cleaning, with additional frequent cleaning of high contact points such as handles, keypads and consulting room tables. To minimise risk further we respectfully ask that you restrict the number of people coming in with your cat to the clinic, and that you clean your hands on entering and leaving the building. We have hand sanitiser wipes available in reception and hand-washing facilities in our consultation rooms and bathroom. If you prefer to wait in your car with your cat that is quite acceptable. We are still taking cash but would encourage you to use a credit or debit card if at all possible. We thank everyone for helping us in protecting our staff and clients, so that we can remain open and caring for our patients as normal.
If you are self-isolating or concerned that coming into the Clinic may not be the best course of action for you, then please call the clinic in the first instance. We are happy to arrange a telephone consultation to discuss your cat’s issues. Some problems can be fully addressed during this call but if we do need to see your cat we can then work with you to find the best way of getting your cat to the clinic.
Following the NHS guidelines, if you are suffering from any symptoms i.e. sore throat, persistent cough and/or fever, please stay at home. If your cat is unwell, please contact us as normal, and we will make arrangements to see your cat ASAP.
Regarding supplies of food and medication: Currently stocks are fine with no concerns at our wholesalers, but please do give us 48 hrs notice, to cover increased demand, when ordering repeat prescriptions or food, and give us warning if you will be ordering a larger than usual amount of food. To place an order please click here.
We respectfully remind all of our clients to remember to check in on any elderly or vulnerable friends and neighbours. If they are concerned about pet food and medical supplies please ring us to discuss the options. We are more than happy to help care for our vulnerable local community by dropping off cat food or medication whenever possible.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding throughout this current situation. We hope that you remain safe and well. If you have any questions or are worried about your cats health, please call us: We will always do our best to help.
