Covid_19

DON'T WORRY  - WE ARE STILL HERE TO TAKE CARE OF YOU AND YOUR PETS!

 

While the Covid - 19 Pandemic and the responses that we need to make are likely to cause significant disruption over the next few months, there is no need to worry about your pets.

 

At this stage there is no evidence that pets can play a role in the spread of this human disease, or that they become sick with Covid-19.

 

Our role as socially responsible community members is to help reduce the chances of overwhelming the medical system - "flattening the curve". This does mean that we will be making some small adjustments to how we run. We also have a responsibility to reduce the risk of infection to our staff, their families and our other clients.

 

If you are at risk of transmitting Covid -19 please advise the clinic prior to arrival. 

We will continue to treat your pet as per normal however we will minimise your contact with staff and our clinic environment. 

This includes anyone who has returned from overseas or interstate in the last 14 days, is confirmed or suspected of having Covid – 19 and is in mandated or voluntary quarantine.

 We would also appreciate if you advised us if you have been contact with any people who are suspected of exposure to Covid-19


To reduce the spread of Covid-19 we will be instituting a range of policies

 

1.    If you are unwell (with any potentially infectious condition even what you believe to be a mild cold) and you need our services please advise the clinic prior to arrival. We will still take care of your pet to our normal high standards. To prevent person to person transmission of any type  of infection we will initiate steps to minimise contact.

2.    For All Over the Counter Sales. Where possible please ring in advance. Place your order with the receptionist. Pay over the phone with credit card. When you arrive at the clinic please ring the receptionist and someone will meet you at the door with your order.

3.    To Maintain Social Distancing we will be limiting the number of people in our waiting rooms. When you arrive for your appointment please call the clinic to let us know you have arrived. When we are ready to see you we will ask you to come into the clinic and proceed directly to a consultation room. Please respect the marked 1.5 m social distancing zones in our consultation rooms and reception area. To prevent person to person transmission of any infection we are initiating steps to minimise contact

4.    Only One Person per Consultation will be allowed into the clinic unless by prior arrangement.

5.    Please use EFTPOS to pay where possible.

6.    Please Wash Your Hands or Use Hand Sanitiser prior to and following your visit.


If you are concerned about your risk of contracting Covid-19 and would like to take extra precautions while still looking after your pets please advise the clinic in advance. We can take simple precautions to minimise the risk of you getting Covid-19 through your interactions with us.


We have had questions regarding coronaviruses more broadly in dogs and cats. 

At this stage there is no evidence that pets can play a role in the spread of this human disease, or that they become sick with Covid-19.

Coronaviruses are a family of viruses that look like the sun (aka 'corona') under an electron microscope, but each coronavirus has its own DNA and infection pattern.  So while there are coronaviruses that a *may* affect dogs and cats, these have nothing to do with the human COVID-19 virus.  Vaccinating your pets for cat or dog coronavirus has no affect in reducing your risk to COVID-19



We will continue to monitor the situation and expect to be able to continue to look after your pets to our usual high standards, while looking after all our people too. 

We are all about caring for you and your pets.


Thank you for understanding.
