Dispensary Christmas Delivery Times
To guarantee delivery before Christmas and New year please place orders before 12pm on Friday 11th of December, normal service will resume on Monday 4th January.
These dates are dictated by our manufacturers as they are closed during this period and although we carry medication and have a small amount of vaccine in stock, we strongly advise you order in advance of this date to guarantee delivery before Christmas and New Year.
The last date for guaranteed next day deliveries before Christmas is Monday 21st December.
Laboratory Opening Times and Testing
Please note that our external laboratories will also be closing during the Christmas period. We would therefore advise that you ring your local practice to discuss submissions ahead of posting any samples so as they can advise which lab this needs to be sent to.
During the Christmas period it is important to ensure that any routine testing, such as Salmonella, continues, so please do call the dispensary team to order any swabs or testing kits required during the festive period. Please also note that our submission forms are also available on our website via the link here.
On behalf of all at St David’s Poultry Team we wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New year.
