As COVID-19, the coronavirus, has presented a new challenge to our community. The Country Doctor Veterinary Hospital intends to fully support the effort to stem the spread of the virus. Since there are still many unknowns concerning the COVID-19 and the situation is constantly changing, our response will be adapted as necessary following the recommendations of the CDC, AVMA, PVMA and regional and local government. Our goal is to continue caring for our patients while protecting the health of our clients and staff.
Our current response involves several areas: cleaning and disinfecting, social distancing, and prioritizing and managing our resources.
Cleaning and disinfecting:
While we always endeavor to keep our hospital clean and disinfected to prevent the spread of disease among our patients, we have increased the frequency and extent of disinfecting to decrease the risk of the spread of COVID-19.
Social distancing is a term that we have all become too familiar with in the past few weeks. The Country Doctor Veterinary Hospital has taken the following steps to decrease the possibility of spreading the virus through contact between people.
Managing and prioritizing resources:
Similar to human hospitals and clinics around the nation, the Country Doctor Veterinary Hospital has experienced back orders of some medical supplies. Currently we are adequately stocked; however depending on the duration of the coronavirus epidemic, we may need to ration our critical supplies. We may also experience staff shortages due to illness of family or child care concerns. The COVID-19 epidemic is an extremely fluid situation and as such our response will be flexible to adjust to meet the current recommendations and requirements. As always our goal during this period is to do our best to provide for your pets’ needs.
The Doctors and Staff of the Country Doctor appreciate the trust that you place in our practice and we will continue to do our best for you and your pet during this uncertain time.
If your pet needs medications refilled you can utilize our online store to order prescriptions and have they shipped directly to you.
