Notice Updated 6/2/2021
Based on recent announcements by the CDC and Pennsylvania Department of Health regarding reduced Covid restrictions, we will be moving to relatively normal business operations 7/5/21. We will allow a single client to accompany their pet into the hospital for scheduled exams, surgical & dental procedures, medication & prescription diet pick ups, and tech appointments. *Only boarding and grooming appointments will remain curbside.
Many services including physical exams and technician appointments will continue to be performed outside of the exam room to comply with ongoing CDC & OSHA distancing guidelines in the workplace. WVH employees will continue to wear masks in the hospital due to the close quarters and confined spaces in which we work. We are strongly recommending all clients (regardless of vaccination status) wear an appropriately fitted mask when entering the hospital until we are able to satisfy vaccination protocols for our entire staff. Unvaccinated clients will be required to wear a face covering at all times upon entering our facility.
If you prefer to remain in your vehicle, Standard Curbside Services will continue to be available upon request. Call or text our office when you enter our parking lot to notify us of your arrival and location. Please remain in your vehicle until a team member comes out to help you.
We will continue offering Remote Health Consults to our clients as well. Ideally, most medical conditions are best addressed through an examination of your pet. However, given the current environment, we are offering Telemedicine Consults as an alternative to physically bringing your pet into the hospital. This service is for existing and active patients only.
While we have had to implement many new hospital protocols and continue to operate under restrictions, we are very excited and hopeful that these changes are just the next step towards returning our hospital and pet hotel to normal business operations. We thank each of you for your flexibility and grace as we have navigated the pandemic and curbside service this past year. We are very much ready to settle back into a more traditional approach and allow you more active participation in your pet's veterinary care. Please continue to be patient and understanding with our staff as we iron out the inevitable hiccups in the process.
Stay safe and healthy, The Doctors and Staff at Wexford Veterinary Hospital & Pet Hotel
