VMG joins call to designate veterinary practices as “critical” to remain open for urgent care

VMG President Richard Casey has written to key government departments to call for veterinary practices to be designated as “critical businesses” to allow them to remain open for urgent care and emergency cases, even if more stringent restrictions are placed on general movement.

The BVA, who are leading the profession’s response to the COVID-19 outbreak, recently called on Ministers to enact a variety of measures that will ensure the safe continued support of animal health.

VMG are fully supporting this position and will continue to work closely with colleagues at the BVA and in the wider profession to provide the best support we can to our members.
