Over the past few days, there’s been a lot of talk about the coronavirus and, understandably, people are alarmed. We take our commitment to our clients and patients very seriously and, because of that, we’re acting with caution to reduce potential risk.
Though we’re not aware of any presumed cases of coronavirus coming through our hospital, we wanted to let you know that we are taking the following measures to keep you safe:
- As a healthcare facility, we regularly disinfect our practice to keep you and your pets safe. Since concerns about the coronavirus popped up, we’ve stepped up our cleaning routine to make sure all surfaces are being frequently disinfected. We’ve also made hand sanitizer available throughout our hospital.
- We’re following the CDC’s recommendations and encouraging sick team members to stay home for the safety of your families and ours. We also ask that you call our office to reschedule your pet’s appointment if you’re exhibiting any respiratory symptoms.
- Though we’re remaining open during our normal business hours, we’re continuing to monitor recommendations made by state and local officials and will act in accordance.
As far as your furry friends go, there’s no need to worry about them. According to the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), “no animals in the United States have been identified with the virus, and there is no evidence that dogs or other pets can contract or spread COVID-19.”
If you have questions or concerns about your pet’s upcoming visit, please don’t hesitate to contact us. To keep up with news related to our operations, you can follow us on Facebook.
