Corona Virus and Aquapaws - STAGE 4 RESTRICTIONS

To all our Very Important Pets and their owners,

I would like to assure you that Physiotherapy and Hydrotherapy services at Aquapaws will remain open.

We are an essential service to pet owners and as such we will continue to provide the highest level of care to all of our clients.

Aquapaws are still here for you and your pets in Stage 4 lockdown! We have now had more clarification on what we can and can't provide.  

"Routine services are NOT permitted. Care must only be provided if the absence of, or delay of this care, would result in a significant change/deterioration in the patient/client's functional independence necessitating escalation of care. These directives are about protecting the public, protecting health workers and saving lives" 

Because of this our pool will remain closed. Puppy Swim N Socialise classes will remain closed. Grooming is now closed. Cases such as post surgical, end of life stages and degenerative conditions will continue to be treated. Our manufacturing of wheelchairs, leg braces, lifting harness etc is currently operational and orders are delivered but trips to the post office will be reduced to twice a week.. 

You are allowed to travel here even if you are outside the 5km radius zone. We will issue you with an Appointment Confirmation and Travel Certificate for your appointment. Our late night Wednesday hours have been reduced till 7.00pm, due to the curfew. 

This certainly is a challenging time for everyone. If you are unsure of anything, please call the office on 03 59 77 88 41.

Our Covid rules have not changed which are as follows:

Only ONE (1) person per consultation. Please DO NOT bring your family or your children to your appointments as they will be asked to remain in your car.

If you have cold or flu like symptoms or someone in your house has cold or flu like symptoms please do not attend your appointment. We will reschedule your appointment.

If someone you are living with is self-isolating due to covid, please DO NOT attend.

Only ONE (1) person in the office at one time.

Please stay safe and be kind to each other. Further updates will be posted on our Website, Instagram page and Facebook page.

No cash transactions allowed due to the germs which present on money.

Deliveries by Australia Post are also taking longer than expected which is totally out of our control.

We are sorry for any inconvenience at this difficult time. We are trying to keep everyone safe including our Team.
