As our community continues to work together to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus, we'd like to take a moment to provide you with an update on the precautions our hospital is taking to ensure the safety of our patients, clients and employees.
Our Hospital continues to observe the CDC's recommendations on disease prevention, handwashing and cleaning protocols, as well as guidance on managing staff members who are displaying flu-like symptoms and/or have tested positive for COVID-19.
In addition to our regular cleaning schedule, we have added deep cleaning protocols which include an increase in cleaning frequency and use of pet-friendly chemicals verified to kill the COVID-19 virus by the CDC and EPA.
If you or a member of your household have tested positive for COVID-19, are displaying flu-like symptoms and/or have traveled to a high-risk area (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/after-travel-precautions.html) within the past 14 days, we ask that you please observe the following protocols:
Please contact our hospital as soon as possible to reschedule your pet's appointment and discuss treatment options. For emergent cases, we will work with you in finding available care at a nearby emergency facility.
Appointment Protocols during Covid 19
For your safety and the safety of our staff, our lobby will remain closed. Upon arrival at our parking lot, please give us a call and you will be checked in into our system. A technician will call you when they are ready and will meet you and your pet at our front door. We require that a mask be worn. Our Doctor will communicate with you via your cell phones. To further comply with social distancing, all financial matters will be done via credit card over the phone.
Medication / Food Pick-Up
If your pet is in need of prescription medication or food refills while you are ill, please call the office to place your order and arrange for somebody else to pick up your pet's items. Upon arrival of the pick-up person, they should remain in their vehicle and call our front desk to let us know that they have arrived. A member of our hospital will meet them at the front door to deliver your medications. Given the airborne nature of the COVID-19 illness, we ask that everybody please refrain from engaging in conversation with the staff member who delivers your items, but rather continue to utilize the phone as the primary method of communicating with our teams.
COVID-10 Risks for Pets
According to the AVMA, CDC and WHO, there is no current evidence to suggest that pets can become sick from the COVID-19 virus or be a source of infection to humans or other animals. Research is continually underway and we encourage clients to continue to monitor the situation via the AVMA (www.avma.org) or CDC (www.cdc.gov) websites.
As always, the safety of our patients, clients and employees remains our top priority. We will continue to provide updates on COVID-19 safety as the situation evolves.
The Odenton Veterinary Hospital is a unique resource for the care of your pet.
Our practice is based on the belief that our clients and their pets needs are of the utmost importance. Our entire team is committed to meeting those needs, with caring sensitivity to every situation that may arise with your pet.
