Dispensary Christmas Delivery Times
To guarantee delivery before Christmas and New Year please place orders before 12pm on Wednesday 15th of December, normal service will resume on Tuesday 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.
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 sample submission forms that are required during the festive period.
On behalf of all at St David’s Poultry Team we wish you a
very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
