Triage Tool for cats and dogs

Please find our new triage tool to help vets in practice identify and process emergency canine and feline cases during the challenging circumstances presented by the Covid-19 pandemic. The tool is available to all vets, free of charge. 

This downloadable and printable guide chart, which has been created by more than ten specialists, enables vets/nurses and receptionists to rapidly identify urgent, potentially urgent, non-urgent and delayable cases to help limited veterinary resources be used to best efficiency without compromise to animal health or welfare.

The triage tool is free to download and share here
