COVID-19 Pandemic Important Update (updated May 19 2020)
Firstly, we sincerely hope that you, your family and furry family members are well during these uncertain times.
Despite the Premier’s recent message, the province remains in a public health emergency and we need to do our part in order to prevent potential exposure to COVID-19 for our staff and our clients.
As things evolve, we hope to be able to relax some of our current measures, but we do not anticipate going back to business as usual for a while and will continue to follow current protocols to ensure the health and safety of our staff and clients.
We continue to face staff shortages and our hours will be reduced until we feel that we are able to accommodate a larger case load. We have been able to make limited availability for nail trims and anal gland expression, please call if you wish to schedule an appointment for these services. We have reduced our hours and will not be open on Wednesdays or Saturdays until further notice. We will also be closing from 1-2 for lunch.
**If you have travelled outside of Canada within 14 days of your appointment or if you or someone in close contact is currently being tested or treated for COVID-19 virus please notify us so that we can make alternative arrangements for you.**
We will be using our phones as our primary means of communication with our clients.
If you require a prescription refill, food or to schedule an appointment please call our office. Please note that we are not scheduling any routine surgeries at this time and are limiting appointment availability for non-urgent care. For orders of food and some medications, please note that it may take up to 10 business days to be received at the practice as our supplier is currently facing some shortages.
Please make note of the following procedures we have recently instituted:
Ordering food and prescription medications: when you call our office, we will give you instructions to pay over the phone whenever possible. Once the product is available for pick up we will notify you and arrange a time for you to collect it from our front table.
If you have a scheduled appointment please call to let us know that you have arrived and you will be transferred by phone to speak directly to our veterinarian. If you do not have access to a cell phone please notify our staff.
We truly appreciate your patience and loyalty as we navigate through this challenging time. From our entire team, be well!
