Surfaces that are touched frequently are being cleaned often and wiped down. Hand sanitizers are placed in multiple locations. We are encouraging drop off appointments, while spacing out the appointments that absolutely cannot be dropped off in hope of limiting face to face time while ensuring that our patients are getting all of the care needed. We encourage quick hand-off of your pets to clinic staff.
