Covid-19 Guidance for Practices

We're continuing to update this page with the latest information and guidance for equine practices to support them through the Covid-19 pandemic.


Following publication of the RCVS guidance for the whole of the veterinary profession, and having presented BEVA's draft guidelines to the RCVS we are now able to confirm our guidelines for equine vets for the current lockdown. Remember these are not normal times, this is not business as usual.
