After a three-month closure, we are excited to share the news that Pets Corner will be back open to the public daily 10.30-16.00 from Saturday 23 April.
From today (26 Jan) Pets Corner will be closed to the public as a preventative measure against Avian Flu.
An Avian Influenza Prevention Zone (AIPZ) has been declared across the whole of England, Scotland and Wales following a small number of isolated cases being confirmed in the UK.
Following a number of new cases the Chief Veterinary Officers for England, Scotland and Wales have agreed to bring in new measures to help protect poultry and captive birds, following a number of cases of avian influenza in both wild and captive birds in the UK.
The introduction of a prevention zone follows a decision to raise the risk level for avian influenza incursion in wild Birds in Great Britain from ‘medium’ to ‘high’ last week.
