We have always upheld extremely stringent sanitizing standard operating procedures, but we are now allowing additional time to clean between patients. We are adhering to all labels on disinfectants to allow adequate contact time to kill infectious pathogens. Please be patient with our team as we allow this extra time between patients in treatment areas and exam rooms to properly disinfect the hospital.
We ask that if you have been feeling ill, traveled recently to a COVID-19 hot-spot or come in contact with someone who is COVID-19 positive, please call to reschedule your appointment. If your pet’s needs are urgent please consider arranging for a family member or friend to bring your pet in for you.
