I am sure most of you have heard that Premier Ford eased restrictions on veterinary hospitals in his announcement on May 14th. Thankfully as of Tuesday May 19th we will be able to return to providing routine pet services including boarding, grooming, heartworm screening, surgeries and annual exam visits.
We know that our clients are anxious to book appointments for one or more routine services and we are looking forward to seeing everybody. We do ask that you be patient with us while we are still working with limited staff and will continue to practice social distancing.
We have a long list of cancellations and appointment requests that will be seen to first and all new requests will be added to that list. This will be a slow process to get everybody seen but rest assured we will get everybody what they need.
Starting on Tuesday May 19th we will be expanding our operating hours from 8am to 6pm. We will continue to offer curbside only pick up for all food and medications orders. Scheduled appointments will also continue to be limited human contact.
Should the pet parent wish to wait inside the clinic, that will be made possible in a specific waiting area. We ask that you limit the number of people that accompany the pet as only one adult will be allowed in the clinic at any given time. We also ask that anybody waiting in the clinic please wear a mask. If the pet parent needs to be present in the exam room as determined by Dr. Paterson, that person will be asked to wear a clinic provided face shield as well as the mask to protect themselves and the staff.
If you have any questions about any of or services or procedures going forward, please reach out to us and we will be more than happy to assist you. We appreciate how cooperative you have all been in this weird world we find our selves in and look forward to the days where we can see all of you up close and mask free!
