Coronavirus and Pets

Coronavirus and Pets
(Or “How do I get my cat to wash her paws for 20 seconds?”)
  In light of the current concerns regarding COVID-19, we would like to share some important information with our clients.

First, to ensure the health and safety of our staff and clients, we have asked our staff members to stay home if they have any cold or flu-like symptoms. We are also diligent about disinfecting our exam rooms after each appointment, washing hands between each patient and client interaction, and regularly cleaning all areas of our clinic with products shown to be effective against coronavirus. 

We ask that if you are experiencing any cold or flu-like symptoms, to please reschedule any routine or non-emergency appointments to reduce potential exposure to our staff and other clients. We realize emergencies with your pet may arise and are unavoidable, and in these cases, we understand if you need to come in while you are ill.

We are currently open for our regular business hours: Monday – Friday 7:30am to 6pm, Saturday 8:30am to 4pm, and Sunday 9am to 4pm.

At this time, there is no evidence that pets can become sick from COVID-19, or that pets can be a source of infection to humans. However, we are following the current recommendations of the American Veterinary Medical Association, the CDC, and other infectious disease agencies; and, suggest that if you have tested positive for COVID-19, you avoid contact with your pets out of an abundance of caution. As our State Public Health Veterinarian suggested; please cough into your elbow, not on to your dog!
