Coronavirus Update - 23/03/2020
THE FAIRY DOGMOTHER IS NOW CLOSED
Following Boris Johnson's announcement this evening I am sad to say that The Fairy Dogmother will now be temporarily closed. The PM has banned all non-essential travel and forced all non-essential shops and businesses to close. He has said that the situation will be reassessed in 3 weeks time. As a self-employed small business owner this news has hit me quite hard but it is necessary for the safeguarding of the entire population.
THEREFORE IF YOU HAVE AN APPOINTMENT BETWEEN NOW AND SATURDAY 11TH APRIL INCLUSIVE YOUR APPOINTMENT WILL NOT GO AHEAD.
When I know more I will be able to let you know more information about when I'll be able to reopen and, therefore, rebook your dog's appointments. Please be aware that once I announce this my phone, emails and Facebook will be extremely busy so you may not get through to me instantly. Please be patient and leave a message where possible as I always reply to voicemails. I will not be rebooking any dogs in at the moment for any future appointments until I know for certain when I am able to reopen.
All I ask is that you do your best to keep your dog's coat in good condition. I can help advise on the best tools for your dog's coat and I can point you towards videos on YouTube if you'd like tips on brushing too. Be mindful that if you wash a dog with a knotted coat it will make the knots tighter and more difficult to remove so try and thoroughly brush before bathing and use a conditioning spray to help if you can. If your dog has matts or very thick knots please don't try and brush these out as it will be very painful and could cause injury to the dog. Just wait until you are able to see me again and I will do what I can to make your dog comfortable.
Please look after yourselves and I look forward to seeing you and your dogs soon! We will get through this.
