General News 

Congratulations Nurse Steph on the safe arrival of her little boy Harrison. 

AND welcome Nurse Sonya! 


The Yankalilla Veterinary Clinic care about the well-being of our clients, patients and staff. 
Following our already high standard of disinfection and cleaning we are taking additional measures:  this includes

•  9 clients  in the clinic at any given time. we can not allow more then this as we have a smaller waiting room area.  If you see a few people are currently already waiting inside, please wait patiently outside or in your vehicle until further instructed by the staff.  Phone the clinic to notify of your arrival.  We ask that you be patient in these trying times... 

• Coughing/sneezing into elbows if needing, then sanitise.

• Where possible, PLEASE pay for items being collected over the phone, staff can then leave your product outside for you to collect. This avoids coming in when not deemed necessary.  We can also do payments outside. 

If you feel unwell in anyway, or are in self isolation please stay at home, a friend or family member is welcome to come instead, making staff aware of this situation before hand.

We offer consults outside and also FaceTime consults if needed.

We ask all clients to please be patient and understand the protocols in place, unfortunately veterinarians and nurses cannot work from home and would like to remain open as long as possible for our clients. 

If you have any questions, please phone our friendly staff at the clinic.
