Pets and livestock guidance

Please note that this information is current as of 25 May 2021, but may be updated in line with Public Health advice as the COVID-19 situation evolves. 

Please check this page regularly in case of updates. We appreciate your patience while we obtain the latest guidance in respect of pets and livestock.

The States Veterinary Officers primarily advise on animal health and welfare queries and cannot directly respond to COVID-19 related queries which may impact public health. If your enquiry could have public health implications we advise that you contact the COVID-19 Helpline on: 01481 717118 or and should they require our advice, they will come to us directly.

The information on this page is in line with Stage 3 of our Exit from Lockdown, which came into effect at 00:01 on Monday 22nd March 2021.
