Covid 19 Ophthalmology for Animals - June 14, 2021

We are pleased to announce that we will begin taking steps to reopen our offices to allow for face to face visits.

The safety of our clients and employees is our highest priority and we will continue to review all available CAL/OSHA and CDC recommendations as we work towards welcoming you back inside. We ask that you please be patient with us as the rules and regulations can change quickly.

Only Vaccinated people with DVM appointments will be allowed into the building at this time, and you may choose whether or not to enter the building.

In order to keep everyone safe all persons will be required to wear a face mask indoors

Our office can only accommodate one client per pet inside of our office as it will be difficult to maintain the proper distancing at all times. You will be asked to answer some questions prior to coming inside.

Allowing inside visits will periodically impact processes and wait times.

Plexiglas shields will be installed at our front desks and hepa filtration systems will be running throughout the building.

We ask that everyone maintains the social distancing practices and utilize the hand sanitizers at the front door and within the hospital.

Once again Masks will be required inside until further notice.

Medication pickups will still be curbside.

When you arrive for your appointment, you may choose to check in via phone or text.

Please do not enter the building without an escort at any time.

Thank you for your continued patience! We look forward to seeing you soon.

Ann Gratzek, DVM
