COVID-19 UPDATES

FIRST OFF- it needs to be said… even if you or your family members are sick and your pet is having an emergency- YOUR PET CAN STILL BE SEEN!!!!! We will ask that you try to have a well-person drop off your pet, but this will not stop your pet from being treated.

 

We understand that there is a significant amount of worry and uncertainty regarding the COVID-19 pandemic as to how it will affect us in the quiet corner. We want to reassure you that our goal is to remain open for your pet’s veterinary needs.

We have ALWAYS taken health seriously. We feel that maintaining your health, your pet’s health and the health of our team is important and have implemented an even more intense sanitizing protocol for our public areas.

In an effort to keep everyone as safe and healthy as possible, we are asking you for some help.

 

1) If you or any member of your household meeting the following criteria, we WILL still care for your pets, but please inform us ahead of time so we can take extra precautions.

  1. If you have travelled recently by plane or visited a heavily affected area of the US in last 14 days (Seattle, Boston, any cruises, any other region with spreading cases)
  2. If you have been exposed to anyone who has returned from a trip in the last 14 days, sick or not.
  3. If you have any symptoms of fever, dry cough, or sore throat
  4. If you have sick family members at home, particular sick children

2) CALL BEFORE YOU COME INTO BUILDING- We will be happy to open doors for you. We will be making sure there is only one person in the lobby at a time and that the exam room will be waiting for you.

3) If you are picking up meds/food only- we will have you pay over the phone and we will bring it out to your car. 

4) Please WASH your hands as you come into the building and as you leave.

5) Maintain a 6-foot distance between you and others in the building

 

If you meet these criteria, we ask you try to get a family member or friend to bring your pet in for needed services, Let us know when you call to schedule and we will determine a plan that might involve our staff collecting your pet from the car, in order to minimize human exposure in the building. Our staff will wear protective gear.

If you or your family is formally diagnosed with coronavirus and are quarantined at home, we request you put off any well-pet needs. If you pet is sick or injured, call us and let us know your situation so we can create the best plan of action.

 

Thank you for following these guidelines. As always if you have any questions or concerns, please call us for help 860-928-0841
