Update on COVID-19 and your pets

The Animal Medical Center would like to take this time to address our clients. Veterinary care is considered to be an essential service, therefore we will NOT close our doors in the foreseeable future. Granted, we will be engaging in precautions and additional steps to protect pets and their owners.

The obvious additions including cleaning high-traffic, high-touch surfaces more frequently and cleaning our card-readers after each client has used it. We have also removed most of the items from counter tops and tables in the lobby and exam rooms to reduce the surface area of those common spaces.

We would also like to remind everyone that there is no fee for cancelling or rescheduling an appointment. We also will provide some additional accommodations:

1) Clients are welcome to remain in their vehicles until their appointment time, we can be reached by phone or text at any time. The number to text is: (906)362-5705

2) We can usher you in via our side entrance which does not connect to the lobby if you are immunocompromised or concerned about exposure.

3) You may send your pet to their appointment with friends or relatives. Help us help you by staying home and having some one else bring in your pet if you are starting to feel ill or have been exposed to COVID-19 and are in a waiting period.

The Animal Medical Center will continue to monitor verified, factual sources of public-health information and make changes as needed. We acknowledge that there is a great deal of misleading or objectively false information being shared with the public and we do not wish to contribute to this. If you have questions or concerns about your pet’s health as it relates to COVID-19, please do not hesitate to call us.

Thank you,

The Animal Medical Center Team
