Covid-19 Info

Updated 5 November 2021

The health and wellbeing of our clients, their pets, our staff and the community is always our top priority. We’d like to reassure you that we plan to offer the best service we can for you and your pets during the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.

As lockdown winds down, to ensure we can continue to service you and your pets and remain open as an essential service, we have made the difficult decision to make some significant changes in the way we provide our service to ensure everyone’s safety.

Until otherwise advised, the following will apply:

  • We will be allowing ONE fully vaccinated person into the clinic with your animal(s) per visit, for those not vaccinated or unable to comply we will still be offering contactless consulting as we have been till now (see covid section on website for full details of how this will work).
  • Puppy school will be starting again on Sun 14 November in a limited capacity – please phone the clinic to enquire.
  • As per the NSW health regulations, mask wearing is MANDATORY.

We understand this is a significant change and will cause difficulty for some clients. PLEASE BE REASSURED THAT WE WILL BE LOOKING AFTER ALL OF YOUR BELOVED PETS AS IF THEY WERE OUR OWN AT ALL TIMES. Thank you for you patience and understanding as we get through this crisis together. Most importantly STAY SAFE AND BE KIND TO EACH OTHER!


Who are we?

Our motto is “Treating Pets as Part of the Family” and this ethos of pets as a loved and treasured member of the family guides everything we do.

Struggletown is open longer hours to be able to provide you with the service you need, whenever you need it.

Monthly Staff Training

Because the team Struggletown always pride ourselves on giving both the best and most up to date care for your pet, as well as the amazing customer service to go along with this, we will be closing our doors, and turning our phones off for 2 hrs in the middle of the day for staff training/meetings towards the end of each month so that we are able to service our clients in the best possible way. We will of course re-open like normal at the end of this. For any critical emergencies during this time please phone the emergency clinic phone number that is on our answering machine. Thank you for your understanding.
