Please find below our Triage Tool for use during Lockdown including circuit and fire-breaks. It is intended to help vets in practice identify and prioritise emergency canine and feline cases during the challenging circumstances as a result of the COVID19 pandemic. The Tool is available to all vets, free of charge.

This downloadable and printable Tool, which has been created by more than ten specialists, enables vets/nurses and receptionists to rapidly identify cases which are urgent, potentially urgent, non-urgent or can be delayed. This should help to ensure that limited veterinary resources are used efficiently without compromising animal health or welfare.

The Triage Tool for use during Lockdown measures is free to download and share here
