Current COVID Policies

As Per 3/1/22

Current Recommendations for Visits

3/1/22

A minor revision.

Our aim is to remain open with sufficient healthy staff to be able to offer treatment to injured and ill patients and wildlife in a timely way. COVID rules have changed a lot recently and mainly relate to the definition of a Close Contact. So good news there as none of our clients can trigger a close contact closure. That helps a lot

Omicron is still to run it's course, there are many more positive cases out there so in order to help protect our staff from contracting COVID we will still be maintaining certain restrictions until the end of January, and then we will revise

Current recommendation

  • We now need to know if you are vaccinated or not
    • If vaccinated you can enter our premises with your pet for your consult. Maximum of one person in the cosulting room with your pet
    • If you are unvaccinated or prefer not to declare your status we would prefer you to nominate a vaccinated person to bring your pet to our hospital. If that is not possible then we will conduct a contactless consult while you wait in the car park
  • Current rules a bit hard to interpret for our setting, but best assume you should scan our QR code
  • Masks are madatory
  • Please use hand sanitisers provided
  • Puppy classes will be on hold until things become clearer regarding Omicron, again liekly end of January
  • We have to do out best to minimise unnecessary contact so this will include wildlife drop offs. These must be done in the carpark until further notice
  • Wires staff must be vaccinated otherwise they cannot visit Seaforth Vets, even for car park drop offs

We hope these tighter restrictions will minimise our need to close. We are also thinking of our staff's health and ability to maintain an income during these difficult times, so we appreciate your understanding

Please feel free to call us should you have any specific requests, questions or concerns - we are committed to ensuring the safety of both our customers and staff whilst still providing the best care possible for your much loved pets

As veterinarians we understand the importance of vaccination, do get your boosters when you can

Here is a reminder from the NSW about what you can and cannot do under the current rules and also continuing to keep safe.  If you want any further information, you can find it at
