In an effort to do our part to minimize the spread of the COVID-19 virus, we wanted to make you aware of steps we’re taking at our clinic to protect our clients and staff.
Our primary goal is to remain open to serve our patients who are sick or in need of urgent care throughout this pandemic situation and that requires that we take strong measures to keep our staff healthy and to limit their potential exposure to the Coronavirus.
As this is a very fluid situation, we are continuing to evaluate and modify policies every day in order to best meet the needs of our patients, staff and clients. We appreciate your understanding, patience and cooperation in helping us implement these policies.
- We are strictly limiting the number of people entering the building and are asking clients to remain in their cars while we escort their pets to and from the clinic. We are also changing how we staff each clinic and having dedicated doctors and team members at each clinic location until further notice.

Additional ways to stop the spread of COVID-19:
- We will be increasing the frequency of our disinfecting of the Reception area and all surfaces that are routinely touched in that area. Exam rooms are always disinfected after each appointment.
- Staff have been asked to stay home if they are experiencing a fever or any upper respiratory symptoms and will be required to have their temperature taken at the start of each shift to verify that they do not have a fever.
- If YOU are experiencing a fever or any upper respiratory symptoms, we ask that you call us to reschedule your appointment or if urgent, please request a mask when you arrive to reduce the risk of any transmission.
- Credit card and personal check payments are preferred over handling cash.
- Don’t shake hands.
- Maintain a proper distance between you and others (3-6 feet), whenever possible.
- Cough or sneeze into a tissue or into your elbow.
- Avoid touching your face, especially eyes, nose and mouth.
