You and your pet’s details are only accessible by members of the clinic team and are treated by us as confidential. These will usually only be passed on to other clinics with your request or approval.
Your permission may be implied to share relevant information for example when an insurance company seeks clarification or further information about a claim under an insurance policy for your pet.
Veterinary clinics may also disclose information to the relevant authorities (eg RSPCA, SSPCA) when justified by animal welfare concerns, where there is a wider public interest or the public are potentially at risk, or where disclosure is required by law.
Please note registration of a dog with the Kennel Club permits a vet who carries out a caesarean section on a bitch, or surgery to alter the natural conformation of a dog, to report this to the Kennel Club.
