COVID-19 SAFETY UPDATE

With the recent shelter-in-place order issued for our community, we wanted to take a moment to let you know that we are open and here for you and your pet! Your pet’s health is our top priority and our dedicated doctors and staff are available to provide essential veterinary services while we all work together to keep our community safe. Please contact our team for more information

As our community continues to work together to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus, we’d like to take a moment to provide you with an update on the precautions our hospital is taking to ensure the safety of our patients, clients and employees.

Hospital Cleaning Protocol & Staff Illness

Our hospital continues to observe the CDC’s recommendations on disease prevention, handwashing and cleaning protocols, as well as guidance on managing staff members who are displaying flu-like symptoms and/or have tested positive for COVID-19.

Clients Affected by COVID-19

If you or a member of your household have tested positive for COVID-19, are displaying flu-like symptoms and/or have traveled to a high-risk area within the past 14 days, we ask that you please contact us as soon as possible to reschedule your appointment and discuss your pet’s treatment options. Additionally, if your pet is in need of a prescription medication or food refill, please contact us to discuss our current pick-up protocol.

COVID-19 Risks for Pets

According to the AVMA, CDC and WHO, there is no current evidence to suggest that pets can become sick from the COVID-19 virus or be a source of infection to humans or other animals. Research is continually underway and we encourage clients to continue to monitor the situation via the AVMA (www.avma.org) or CDC (www.cdc.gov) websites.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this unprecedented time.
