FIVE STAR HEALTH SCHEME AWARDS UPDATE

We have updated the 5 Star Health Scheme Awards information, which can be downloaded via the link at the bottom of this page.

Covid and Health Testing

Covid has had a major impact on health testing in 2020 and the early months of 2021. Vets were advised that health testing was not a priority by the BVA. Vets and their staff needed to keep safe in order to be available for emergencies and that meant that most vets stopped doing all routine work including vaccinations as well as health tests.

The general public were also advised not to travel. We did not and do not recommend that Pug owners break lockdown rules in order to health test their dog.

This situation is reflected in the number of Five Star Health Scheme Certificates awarded.

We are pleased that people have continued to join our scheme in order to be ready to make appointments for health testing as soon as lockdown restrictions are fully lifted.
