SHELTON VETERINARY CENTER HAS A NEW POLICY WHEN HANDLING COVID-19
Our office is open, but we are increasing efforts to limit face to face exposure. During this time you will no longer be able to accompany your pet into the building. Examinations will be performed while you wait safely in your vehicles; and most, if not all communications will be accomplished via telephone or email. Below is the latest protocol that has been put into place. We are committed to continually being able to provide excellent veterinary care while also keeping you and our staff safe. We appreciate your patience during this pressing time.
- Please call us when you arrive and a technician with come out to your car to meet you.
- Dogs must be on a leash that is securely attached at all times and cats and small mammals MUST be in carriers on arrival.
WE ARE ASKING THAT PET OWNERS WHO ARE EXPERIENCING ANY RESPIRATORY SYMPTOMS (COUGHING, SNEEZING, RUNNY NOSE, FEVER, SCRATCHY THROAT ETC.), OR WHO HAVE TESTED POSITIVE FOR COVID-19, OR WHO ARE QUARATINED, OR ARE IN A HIGH RISK CATEGORY, PLEASE HAVE SOMEONE ELSE BRING YOUR PET TO THE OFFICE.
If you need to pick up medication or food, please call us when you arrive and we will organize your prescription put it outside and take payment over the phone.
While we know everyone is busy. We ask for your patience as we continue to take care or your furry loved ones. Keeping all parties safe is our utmost goal. This new process will take more time.
As always, we thank you all very much for your continued support and patronage.
