Instructions for a safe visit to Drove Vets
Please read before Visiting
However, during the current situation we will not be allowing clients in to any of our buildings from Monday 11th January until further notice, as we did for a part of 2020;
We will only be seeing your pets face to face if there is a real animal health and welfare need. At this time we can reassure you that we will still be undertaking vaccinations and some neutering where requested, please call the Hospital on 01793 522483 or your local branch to discuss.
We hope you understand with the new variant of the virus and increased transmissibility, we are doing our best to protect our clients and staff and therefore our way of working must adapt to ensure we keep everyone as safe as possible.
YOU WILL BE CONTACTED BY US IF THERE ARE ANY CHANGES TO YOUR UPCOMMING APPOINTMENT.
This means that we will be switching some ‘non-essential’ services to an online format (this will involve some appointments, post op checks, Drove Pet Club checks and 6-month checks).You will be advised at the time of making your appointment if a video consultation would be recommended prior to a face to face visit to your local Drove Branch.
Drove uses Pets App for all online consultations and it also allows us to communicate and send you notifications on any changes or updates. Please click here to Download and learn more about how to use Pets App.
Update to Opening Times for our Abbey Meads and Royal Wootton Bassett branches;
Please be aware that from Wednesday 13th January we are amending the opening times of both our Royal Wootton Bassett branch and our Abbey Meads Branch.This is to ensure we have enough staff to keep all our branches functioning and to ensure continuity of care for you and your pets.

Royal Wootton Bassett will be open 8:30am - 2:30pm Monday – Friday.
We would like to reassure you that this is a temporary
measure and we will be reviewing this on a regular basis while we are in this
current period of restrictions.
Measures are in place to ensure both your safety and the safety of our staff. Please adhere to the social distancing measures we have put in place and new signs giving information on collections and arriving for appointments.
