How to protect yourself and your pets from covid-19
The Doctors at the Village Veterinary Clinic understand the concern and uncertainty that our community is experiencing surrounding coronavirus (COVID-19) and are committed to the well-being of our patients, clients, and employees.
At this time, we are fully operational and maintaining our normal business hours.
However, we are keeping a close eye on developments as they evolve and how this could affect our patients and how we deliver the care they need. We are constantly monitoring the most current information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO) and the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) regarding people, animals and the COVID-19.
At this time, Infectious disease experts, as well as the CDC, OIE, and WHO indicate there is no evidence that pets can become sick nor evidence to suggest that pet dogs or cats can be a source of infection with SARS-CoV-2, including spreading COVID-19 to people. More investigation is underway and, as we learn more, we will update you. As always, because animals can spread other diseases to people and people can also spread diseases to animals, it’s a good idea to always wash your hands before and after interacting with animals.
We are also closely monitoring the guidance of the World Health Organization, Centers for Disease Control and local authorities regarding the spread of the virus to ensure that the actions that we are taking are comprehensive and appropriate.
For the protection of our clients, patients, and employees, The Village Veterinary Clinic will be adhering to the following precautionary and response measures to help us continue to provide a safe and clean environment:
