We know this is a stressful time for all of you, and we hope that you and your family are staying safe and healthy. We understand how much the COVID 19 situation impacts everyone, from our pet parents, to our community, to our staff. Our top priority is to continue to serve our patients while minimizing the risk to our clients and team.
Therefore, we will be moving to limited appointments starting Sunday March 22nd through Sunday April 5th.
You can still count on the VCMC team for any emergencies you may have with your pet. We will also continue to provide services for those patients that have ongoing issues that require maintenance including chronic fluid therapy, monthly injectable medications (Adequan™ and Cytopoint™), rabies vaccinations, and other therapies that are deemed necessary by our veterinarians.
Low Contact Service
During this time, we will continue to practice curbside concierge service. To prevent the spread of COVID-19, all clients will be asked to remain in the parking lot and not enter the building. Whether you are coming for an appointment for your pet, dropping off a specimen, or picking up food or medications, please call us from your car when you are in our parking lot to let us know you have arrived. One of our team members will promptly come out to assist you.
Zero Contact Appointments
We are proud to announce that we are now offering telemedicine! Telemedicine is the use of communication technology, such as video conferencing, to allow veterinarians to diagnose and treat patients remotely. While many illnesses and injuries will still need to be treated in person, telemedicine will allow us to evaluate minor issues in your pets while practicing responsible “social distancing”. When you call for an appointment, ask our receptionists if a telemedicine appointment is right for your pet.
Medication and Prescription Diet Refills
To continue our efforts to keep everyone healthy and safe, we have decided to delay many of our normal recommendations for blood work and exams for most medication and prescription diet refills. We will return to our normal recommendations once normal business has resumed.
Finally, if you are ill or have recently travelled, please call to reschedule your appointment.
Thank you for your understanding. We hope everyone stays safe and healthy during this difficult time. Please feel free to reach out to a VCMC team member if we can be of any assistance.
