COVID-19 UPDATE Apr 4, 2021: Our practice is open with continued Curbside Care
To our Valued Customers,
The health and well-being of your pet is our top priority. As news of continuing coronavirus vaccination in our community continues to develop, we are monitoring the situation closely with much hope and positivity!
At this time, our clinic remains operating under regular business hours with curbside care primarily. To limit human interaction, most wellness exams, vaccinations and sick animal work ups will be done without the owner being present but with communication by phone or in the parking lot. Medication, preventatives and food pickup will be curbside as well.
We will continue to allow owners to accompany pets for some sensitive situations -like end of life, intensive workups or difficult to restrain animals.
While the CDC and other health authorities have indicated that dogs, cats, and other domestic animals are not considered at high risk for contracting COVID-19, we are taking extra precautions to ensure the health and safety of humans within our facilities. We are working closely with our staff to ensure that anyone who is not feeling well understands that we support them in staying home.
To our customers:
- If you are feeling ill or experiencing flu-like symptoms and have an upcoming wellness (not critical) appointment, we kindly ask that you call us to reschedule.
- If you are healthy with no signs of illness, please bring your animal to our hospital and practice social distancing. Please wear a face covering! When you arrive at the clinic, please call 646-7200 and remain in your vehicle with your animal. Our staff will come out and retrieve your pet. Phone and text conversations will be utilized for sick patients and a Drop Off Form is now available on this website to send to us in advance of your appointment. Pet Food and Medication Pickups will also be available on our covered deck outside the lobby.
- We have staff members on call for pet pickup and medication /food home drop-off if you do not want to come in to our clinic. Please know that we stock most Flea/Tick and Heartworm preventatives and will MATCH ALL ONLINE PHARMACY PRICES! We can ship, deliver or have you pick up!
- Our Online Pharmacy is also available on our clinic website www.postroadvet.com. Here you can order prescription medications, pet food and preventatives as long as we have a current wellness exam on your animal.
Thank you for your patience and cooperation. We are optimistic that many of our appointment practices will be able to return as infection rates decline and more of our staff get vaccinated!
