I think we can all agree that it has been a very long eight months. As the case numbers for COVID-19 soar, we wanted to reach out to provide you with a few updates and reminders about what to expect at St Francis Animal Hospital.
2) For non-urgent questions or updates, please allow 2-3 business days for a response. When possible, our technicians will follow up with you on the doctors' behalf to allow our doctors to continue to care for our patients in appointments or in hospital. Please also allow 2-3 business days for all food or medication refill requests.
3) Please help us to keep our team safe.We ask that you wear a mask when you are within six feet of any of our team members. We have increased our protection by wearing face shields in addition to our masks, but we ask that you do your part as well to help keep us safe and healthy.
4) Our appointments and food or medication pick ups will continue to be curbside only with the exception of euthanasia appointments. Our small facility does not allow us to safely have clients in the building. Please know that we care for your pet in your absence just as we would in your presence --- with maybe a few more kisses, snuggles, and treats. We really do miss you as much as you miss us. This is difficult for everyone, but necessary for us to keep our team safe and our doors open.
5) As the weather becomes colder, if there are reasons that you cannot remain in your car in the parking lot, please talk with us about scheduling a drop off appointment.
If we reach a critical stage in which we do not have enough team members to adequately provide care for your pets, we have doctors who are out ill and cannot see their appointments or perform their surgical/dental procedures, or the clinic is required to close for quarantine, we will need to take steps to reschedule your visits. We understand how frustrating this is, especially since many of these appointments have been on the calendar for months. If we need to take these steps, we ask for your kindness, understanding, and patience as we work with you to find alternative appointment times.
As always, thank you for caring for us like your own family. As we hear what is happening at other veterinary practices across the country, we are in awe of the amazing clients that we have at St Francis. We are so grateful for you and so honored to have worked side by side with you throughout the ups and downs of these past eight months. We could not do the great work that we do at St Francis without the collaborative effort with our incredible pet owners!
