Due to the ongoing pandemic and in effort to keep everyone healthy, we will be continuing curbside service until further notice. We are unable to allow clients to enter our building at any time. Clients are required to remain in their cars while our staff performs therapies on their pets.
When you arrive please call the office to inform our staff of your arrival. Feel free to walk your pet outside in our spacious grass area. One of our staff members will meet you outside and bring your pet inside for therapy and/or exam. Our doctors and therapists will call you on your cell phone after therapies or exams and let you know how they did.
We have designated parking spaces for curbside service as well as handicapped pets.
Unfortunately due to staff shortages, we will be unable to offer any boarding services until further notice.
OTHER HELPFUL INFORMATION
In the face of public health concerns related to COVID-19, we want to offer a few educational resources regarding the virus and its risks and update you on the actions we are taking to help minimize the risk of disease spread.
We all can do our part to reduce and slow the spread of the disease. The following list offers a helpful set of actions to perform:
- Avoid people who are sick, and avoid going out in public if you think you might be sick.
- Call your physician if you experience a fever and respiratory issues.
- Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze.
- Regularly disinfect objects and surfaces in your home and workplace.
- Avoid touching your face, especially your eyes, nose, and mouth.
- Wash your hands often. Use soap and water, and wash for at least 20 seconds.
As the spread of panic and misinformation can be as dangerous as disease itself, it is also extremely helpful to keep yourself and loved ones informed by making sure you look to experts and trusted organizations for information and guidance. Our preferred sources are the CDC, the World Health Organization, and the AVMA.
At the Animal Therapy Center, our staff is taking additional actions to reduce the risk of disease spread to our already vigorous cleaning and sanitizing practices:
- Wiping down surfaces and handles multiple times a day
- Encouraging staff and clients to minimize exposure risk by limiting physical contact. We love to be social with our clients and offer hugs and handshakes, but we’ll hold off for now in favor of safety.
- Washing our hands frequently and thoroughly throughout the day.
