There is a lot going on in our country right now in regards to the Coronavirus Pandemic. We would like to take this time to post some information for our clients:
–First, we plan on remaining open and being there for our patients unless something changes dramatically. We are doing things in house to reduce the risk of any disease transmission such as extra cleaning, disinfecting, limiting contact, etc.
Remember, we have to deal with diseases that are more contagious and resistant in the environment, Parvovirus in dogs for example.
–Second, dogs and cats do not appear to be susceptible to this Coronavirus, so you don’t need to worry about them too much.
–Third, if you are sick, please stay at home. We can reschedule your appointment. If your pet really needs to come in, then contact us and we will try to arrange a drop-off appointment.
–Lastly, be sure to follow good hygiene practices. WASH YOUR HANDS! Reduce physical contact with others. Maintain a “social distance” of 6 feet from other persons wherever possible. Avoid large crowds. And most of all, use common sense.
There are sure to be more cases of this disease occur, but most cases are mild and run their course with rest and supportive care, much like the flu. If you become seriously ill or have difficulty breathing, contact your own health care provider.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
