The coronavirus lockdown has meant veterinary professionals are under strain as they focus on emergency treatment and keeping their staff, pets and owners safe.
Although the British Veterinary Association says it may be possible for pets to receive vaccinations, whether you can depends on the resources your vet has and your pet's individual circumstances.
We spoke to our vet expert Dr Sophie Bell to get some clarity and advice for pet owners.

Can you still get pet vaccinations during coronavirus?
Dr Bell explains how long your pet can wait to get a booster and which dogs are more at risk of becoming ill if they don't get their jabs renewed on time.
If your pet's vaccination is due, speak to your vet so they can help you assess the risks in your individual case.
Puppy vaccinations during coronavirus
Puppies and kittens have some immunity that can last until they're 16 weeks old. Dr Bell explains what to do if you can't vaccinate right now.
Socialising a new puppy when you're unable to leave the house and meet other owners and dogs may be difficult but there are things you can do.

Can I claim on my pet insurance if my pet's vaccines are not up to date?
Many pet insurance providers have terms in their policy documents that say claims are only valid if your pet's vaccines are up to date.
Most pet insurers require pets to be vaccinated against distemper, hepatitis, leptospirosis and parvovirus for dogs and feline infectious enteritis, feline leukaemia and cat flu for cats.
At Bought By Many, we believe your vet often knows best and we will still cover you if they've decided that in the current Covid-19 outbreak your pet might be ok to wait a little longer to get its jabs.
We know getting vaccinations during the lockdown may be out of pet owners' hands and we want our customers to feel safe that they are covered.
If you are worried or unsure of what to do with your pet's vaccinations, give your vet a call and have a chat. Knowing your pet's medical history, your vet will be able to advise you accordingly. Learn more about pet vaccines here.
