Updated March 20, 2020 

Due to the Governor's orders regarding COVID-19, the ATC has made some difficult decisions to change our hours of operations as well as policies. We are keeping everyone's health in mind and working hard to keep everyone safe.

As of March 20, 2020 we will only be offering specific modalities for pain management. Our goal is to continue to offer pain management services to keep our patients comfortable during this difficult time. We will only be offering these 3 modalities:

  • Acupuncture
  • Laser
  • Hydrotherapy


This is a difficult time for all of us; not being able to welcome our clients and patients with hugs and extended courtesies has been an extremely difficult change. We hope that the ATC can continue to be a warm, friendly, and safe environment for you and your pet as we work through this time of uncertainty together. We will remain open to provide uninterrupted care for our patients and continue to serve our community. Below we have updated our policies for new and existing clients to review. 

 SINGLE SESSIONS WILL BE DISCOUNTED THE SAME AS PACKAGES 

We know that some of our clients are experiencing financial hardships during this crisis. The ATC is committed to our patient care and we are now offering 10% off single sessions (the same discount as our package price on all therapies except acupuncture).  We will discontinue selling packages until further notice as these are non-refundable. 

    •  Laser- All levels
    •  Hydrotherapy- All levels

CURBSIDE CHECK INS 

We have since received additional information and advice which has led us to further modify our practices. Please realize that all of these practices are being implemented in order to ensure that we are able to continue to serve you and your four-legged family members.

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. Our doctors and therapists will call the client on their cell phone after therapies or exams and let you know how they did.

BOARDING SERVICES

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.

Testimonials

Read What Our Clients Say

  • "I especially appreciate the kind interaction between the staff and my little Vinnie boy. I’m pretty sure he thinks he goes to the center just for hugs and kisses, not to see a doctor. I also like that you really take time to evaluate the patient not just move us through to get to your next client. AND you are spot on with the appointment time. I’m telling everyone about the doctor and staff! Vinnie and I really appreciate all of you."
