Important CityVet Updates
As we continue to navigate the ongoing impacts of the COVID-19 virus, CityVet remains
open for business and is committed to providing you and your pets a safe, clean and
sanitary environment. Please note the latest updates for all our locations:
- In keeping with orders issued by state, city and county governments, we have
temporarily suspended elective procedures requiring the use of PPE as well as
bathing and grooming services. We will continue to offer essential medical
services and prescription refills. In addition, we will continue to offer
boarding and limited dayplay services.
- Curbside services - Please call our office when you arrive and plan to wait
in your car while your pet is being treated. The Veterinarian will come to get
you or speak to you by phone if there is anything he or she needs to show or
discuss with you. This will allow us to reduce the number of people in our waiting
areas and limit the overall people flow into our offices. Please be patient with us
as this service could lead to longer wait times than usual.
Please call the clinic and reschedule your appointment if you are ill. If your pet
requires emergency care, call ahead to allow us to prepare treatment arrangements
prior to your arrival.
As of today, "there is no evidence at this point to indicate that pets become ill
with COVID-19 or that they spread it to other animals, including people" according
American Veterinary Medical Association
World Small Animal Veterinary Association
, and the
Veterinary Information Network
However, if you do become ill the CDC recommends limiting your exposure to your pet
as you would with people
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
Thank you again for being a valued member of the CityVet family.
