COVID-19 (coronavirus) advice: latest information

UQ VETS hospitals continue to be available for all of your animal's veterinary requirements with the health and wellbeing of our staff, students, clients and patients as our first priority.

Due to increased COVID restrictions in Queensland, You will also be required to wear a mask at all times, including outside. If you do not have your own mask our team will happily provide you with one.

We encourage you to call our friendly reception team to discuss your animal's individual circumstances. Before your appointment, please read and follow the below precautionary measures.

  • If you live in a high-risk or locked down area our team will not be able to offer a site visit. 
  • When you call we will triage the patient over the phone and collect as much history as possible before we arrive. 
  • When our team arrives they will be wearing PPE and you will also be requested to wear a mask. If you do not have a mask our team can supply you with one. 
  • If we visit your property, please have present only enough people required to restrain your animal – 1 to 2 people maximum. 
  • If you are feeling unwell, please find a healthy person to meet us. 

If you have an emergency please call ahead on 5351 5051 so that we can discuss your animal’s condition over the phone and determine the best plan of action.
