To our Hartwood Clients,
This is an updated protocol for us as the COVID-19 virus continues to spread.
As stated previously, we would like all of you to know that Hartwood Animal Hospital is still open and operating under normal business hours.
As we see the continued spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus) and the speed at which things are changing, we have updated our method of operation based on recommendations from the CDC and the local health department to keep our staff and clients healthy and safe.
In an effort to provide the best care to our patients and provide a safe and healthy workspace for our staff, Hartwood Animal Hospital has implemented the following precautions.
- OUR LOBBY IS NOW CLOSED.
- We will be triaging all appointments from the car.
- Please call the hospital when you arrive in the parking lot. An assistant will come out to you, triage your pet, and bring him/her in for treatment. After the exam is over the doctor will communicate her findings via phone or you can read her notes from the exam. We are taking credit card information over the phone and can give you a paper receipt or email the receipt with the doctor’s notes. The assistant will return you pet to you with any medications required.
- If you are simply picking up medications or food please call from the parking lot & payment will be taken over the phone and the items will be brought out to you.
- We ask if you are exhibiting symptoms (fever, cough or cold symptoms), you reschedule your appointment.
- If you have been in contact with an affected person, please reschedule your appointment.
- If your pet has an emergent situation, we will absolutely care for your pet regardless of other factors.
Know that Hartwood Animal Hospital’s number one concern is the safety and well-being of your pet, you, our staff and everyone’s families so please help us join the community in limiting our risk factors.
