Digital resources to help with practice and client communications

To help you communicate the changes to the ways you are working during the lockdown period, we have developed a range of digital resources that you can share on your practice Facebook and Instagram pages, as well as posters that you can download and print for use in practice. 

Our range of Facebook and Instagram cards include key messages that are relevant to animal owners, including:

  • Remote prescribing
  • Practice opening hours
  • Self-isolating clients
  • And more!

And for the clients who you ask to come into your practice, we have also created posters for you to download and print.

Download all the resources

You can also download the resources individually below.

NB all information is based on current government guidance and our current advice, but may be subject to change at any time. Please keep checking for the latest updates.
