We, at Blue Bonnet Animal Hospital, are taking every precaution and will continue to update you as the COVID-19 situation evolves. We are currently open for our regular business hours but are continuing to monitor the situation closely.
Regarding concerns with the Coronavirus (COVID-19), for your protection as well as our employees, be assured that our clinic is taking every precaution to keep our facility sanitized and clean to keep all who enter safe.
Please note the following:
1. Out of an abundance of caution, if you feel ill with flu-like symptoms, we ask that you not come to the clinic. Should your pet require medical care, please provide them alternate transportation, such as with a friend or family member. Also, please call ahead and inform our staff so we can take the proper precautions to ensure your pet gets the treatment they need. We can also arrange an exam from your car or a drop-off appointment.
2. We are following the social distancing guidelines to keep both our clients safe and our team members safe while providing care to your pets.
3. We have increased our cleaning policies in all areas of the hospital to prevent unknown transmission. We are still seeing normal vaccine appointments at this time, but this is subject to change pending advice from public health officials.
4. Hand sanitizer is available in all exam rooms and the lobby, as well as hand wash stations. Please practice good hygiene in the presence of staff and other clients.
5. For your convenience, please remember we have an online pharmacy where you can order your pet’s medication refills and prescription diets, eliminating a trip out for these purposes. Please ask our staff for assistance using this service if needed. If you must refill your medication, please give us at least 48 hours notice. For your safety and the safety of others, please call us when you are picking up medications. A technician will bring your medication refill to your car; you can also pay the bill from your car as well.
6. COVID-19 and your pet- there is no evidence that there has been any transmission from dogs and cats to humans and vice versa. Dogs and cats have their own version of coronavirus that we have known about for decades and cannot be transmitted to people.
We will continue to update everyone as changes occur but please feel free to reach out to us with questions or concerns.
