Care of your pet's body when we are closed
Ideally, when we are closed, and if at all possible, your pet should be stored properly in cold storage at your vets.
But if you are at home and the vets are closed , the following guide will help for keeping your pet for up to two days only...
Wrap clean towels around head and bottom end of your pet
Fully wrap him or her in a fresh, clean old sheet or pillow case, depending on size
Make sure there are no gaps so that the body is protected, a nice secure package
Place your pet in a pet carrier, lidded box or pet bed, again, depending on size
Now put in as cold a room as you have or, if safe, a garage or outbuilding that is cool
Place away from any wall that absorbs warmth from the sun
Ideally, put freezer blocks around body or simple bags of ice from the supermarket wrapped in newspaper or tea towels.
These can be replaced if they thaw,
Remember warmth and pests are your main enemy so cold and protection are the key.
During the year we are open weekdays only and closed on Bank Holiday Mondays
