Friars Moor Vets are taking the risk of Covid 19 very seriously. As a practice we are continuing to provide the best service we can in these difficult times. On this page, we bring together everything you need to know about how our services are affected. We appreciate your understanding at this time.

Site-wide alert:

Updated June 25th:


We would like to welcome you to Friars Moor Veterinary Clinic and reassure you that we are providing a veterinary service during the current COVID restrictions.

We are pleased to welcome you into our consult rooms once again.

Please speak to a member of the team on your arrival who will advise you of the new system; you may still be seen in the car park if you prefer.

We continue to encourage online ordering for any repeat prescriptions.

Our reception areas are open for collections, notifying us you have arrived for your appointment and for settlement of your account.

We would like to thank you again for your patience and understanding during this difficult time.

Stay safe Friars Moor Vets.


Pets / Small Animal / Surgery Visits

We are restricting movement between our branches. As a result, there may be some variations in Surgery opening hours – when possible, advance notice will be posted here, and at the foot of every page on this website, under ‘Our Surgeries’.

If your pet is unwell please call your preferred branch of Blandford, Shaftesbury or Sturminster to book an appointment. The team will give you further information on the practice protocols and how we are adhering to social distancing.

Please ensure all repeat prescriptions are ordered via our online service and that you choose the preferred branch you would like to collect from. Please collect your repeat prescription before 4.30pm Monday-Friday.

For current Opening Hours
please see the panel at the foot of this page
(and throughout the website).

We are available outside of the those times for emergencies.

Livestock Health

In order to continue providing a normal service to our farm clients, all our livestock vets are now working from their cars. Please ring the surgery as usual to book visits and drugs.

Note that Livestock Health is operating separately from the surgeries, and unless otherwise indicated, scheduled visits will take place as arranged, even if/when surgeries may need to close (e.g. for a deep clean).
