Important Announcement Regarding Covid-19
April 6th, 2020
At Friendship Pet Hospital we are keeping a close eye on the rapidly developing Covid-19 pandemic. At this time, we are using several layers of protection for you and your pet.
A few examples of the new protocols we have put in place are as follows:
Concierge service only for the majority of appointments
Telemedicine options available for our existing clients
Split teams to reduce the number of employees in the building at one time
Hourly disinfecting of the clinic
Thorough cleaning and disinfecting of the clinic between teams
Masks are worn at all times
Hand washing between each and every patient
We are closely following the developments of Nadia, a 4 year old tiger at a Zoo in New York, who recently tested positive for Covid-19. You can read more about her story here: Newsroom - Nadia At this time, we are supporting the following recommendations made by the AVMA (American Veterinary Medical Association):
If you are not ill with COVID-19, you can interact with your animals as you normally would, including feeding and otherwise caring for them. You should continue to practice good hygiene during those interactions (e.g., wash hands before and after interacting with your animals, including handling of food, supplies, and waste; keep feed, water, and any supplies used to deliver them clean; remove soiled bedding and replace as appropriate).
Out of an abundance of caution and until more is known about this virus, if you are ill with COVID-19 you should restrict contact with pets and other animals, just as you would restrict your contact with other people. When possible, have another member of your household or business take care of feeding and otherwise caring for any animals, including pets. If you have a service animal or you must care for your animals, including pets, wear a cloth facemask; don’t share food, kiss, or hug them; and wash your hands before and after any contact with them.
There have been no reports of pets or livestock becoming ill with COVID-19 in the United States. At this point in time, there is also no evidence that domestic animals, including pets and livestock, can spread COVID-19 to people.
https://www.avma.org/resources-tools/animal-health-and-welfare/covid-19 We appreciate your support and flexibility while we work to remain a leader in standards or care and safety of the community. Currently, we will remain open 8:00 am - 8:00 pm 7 days a week. We miss seeing our clients and want you to know that, as always, your pets are well loved while in our care.
Take care and stay healthy! Lori Stephens, DVM and Owner at Friendship Pet Hospital and Wellness Center
