Write to your MP - help us secure appropriate financial support for vets
We’re working hard to secure appropriate financial support for veterinary businesses, but we need your help to amplify the message.
We urge you to write to your local MP - and MSP, AM or MLA where appropriate - asking for their help in securing access to financial support packages for your business, and flexibility over furloughing, using our template letter.
Social Media Toolkit
You can download our BVA social media graphics for use on veterinary practice social media accounts. Our social media graphics cover Covid-19 advice for pet owners and veterinary professionals. They include reminders:
- To phone your veterinary surgery first;
- That practices are closed for all but emergency treatment;
- To practise social distancing and more
