March 21 2020 – COVID-19 Update

For our valued staff members and clients,

Beattie Pet Hospital remains open during the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic with adjusted hours. We want to assure you that your pet’s health care is important to us and we will provide care until our profession explicitly says otherwise.

We are navigating through a rapidly changing public health situation and want to continue providing healthcare services for our pet communities around us while ensuring the safety of our staff. We will provide essential medical services so we do not compromise a pet’s healthcare needs and understand there are dangers present to a pet’s health should they not receive preventative and/or immediate medical attention.

We are following best practices when it comes to cleaning and disinfecting our hospital to ensure the maximum possible safety for our staff, our clients and your pets.

For those of you who are currently self-isolating or are feeling symptoms and need to bring in your pet for medical attention, we kindly request that you follow the protocols below:

  • Call us at our hospital and our team will provide guidelines for how your pet can receive the best care possible
  • If you have any concerns regarding your own health please do inform our staff immediately on the phone
  • Stay in your car on arrival in the parking lot OR send a family member who is healthy to bring your pet under your permission
  • Order pet foods and products online using “Shop Now” on our hospital website and selecting deliver to home

We thank you for understanding during these difficult times and we are here to continue serving the pet community. We will continue to update you on a daily basis.

Keeping Our Hospital Safe During COVID-19 Outbreak

Safety of our staff members and clients is a priority at Beattie Pet Hospital and it is important that our hospital remains open to serve the needs of our pet community.

We are taking added precautions to keep our clients and employees safe.
Precautions we have implemented in Hospital:

  • Disinfecting exam rooms and common reception area after clients leave
  • Janitorial services after hours
  • Reduced number of staff working in hospital
  • Reduced volume of clients coming in
  • Increased hand sanitizers around hospital and client area for use by staff and clients
  • Social distancing in exam rooms with staff and clients
  • Requesting clients to wait in car or go home while diagnostics are happening at hospital
  • Having clients who are healthy and do not have symptoms sanitize their hands

We are doing our part as best we can during these times and are staying updated accordingly, as new information continues to come out.

Our Staff is kindly asking the following to clients over the phone:

If you have traveled outside of the country in the last two weeks or are experiencing any flu-like symptoms and your pet doesn’t require immediate medical attention, call us and we will guide you appropriately to seek care for your pet.
