Just like everyone else, we are very happy to see all of the COVID numbers continue to decline after the winter Omicron surge. At Palmer Animal Hospital we are slowly but continually revising our COVID restriction policies. Here is what is in effect beginning Monday, February 28, 2022:
–Clients will once again have the option of accompanying their pets into our office for their pet’s appointment. When you arrive for your pets appointment, please come into the waiting room so our front desk staff can get you checked in. If you do not want to enter the office with your pet for the appointment, call when you arrive and our staff will arrange to come out to get your pet for their appointment.
–Masks are no longer required to enter the building, but of course you may wear one if you want. If you are sick (especially if you have COVID), we ask that you not enter the building and utilize curbside service.
–All medication and food pick-ups will no longer be totally curbside. Please call ahead to orders the medication/food that you need. When you arrive at the office, you may either come into the waiting room to pickup what you need directly from our staff, or call when you arrive and the staff will bring it to you.
—Please keep in mind that our appointment schedule is still very full. We do reserve multiple same day appointments to be used for sick pets so if you call first thing in the morning, we will try to fit you into one of those appointments. All of our staff our working their hardest to provide the best care that we can for all of our patients. We will continue to see as many patients as possible, but there are times when we cannot fit more patients into our schedule.
While things have returned to mostly normal, we remain vigilant because of the upcoming winter and expected surge in COVID and flu cases.
