The Seven Valleys Veterinary Hospital has updated our COVID-19 protocols.
In an effort to conserve medical supplies and personal protective equipment (PPE) for human medical staff the veterinary regulating bodies of the state of Pennsylvania have mandated that all veterinary hospitals within the state comply with new policies in regards to Covid-19.
These regulations include:
1. Effective immediately, ONLY medical staff will be permitted to enter the building. Again, this is in an attempt to protect the health of our veterinary staff as well as our clients by limiting everyone's interaction with public surfaces. Upon arrival to your appointment please call our hospital at 717-428-3902 and a knowledgable technician will take care of you. With our curb-side service, your pet will be brought into the building and all communication will take place over the phone. We apologize for the inconvenience and hope we can return to normal appointment scheduling and policies as soon as possible.
2. We are reserving all appointments for sick, urgent, or emergency situations. These situations include ANY pet experiencing respiratory problems, seizures, collapse, lameness, ear or eye problems, significant dental disease as well as skin issues.
3. ALL wellness and elective procedures are to be postponed. This includes all spays and neuters, routine dentals, as well as any vaccine appointment where the pet is NOT due for rabies.
We recognize that this is an unpredictable situation that is changing all the time. We will do our best to continue to be here for you and your pet while keeping you updated along the way.
We are decreasing our hours to Monday - Friday 8am to 2pm.
We apologize for the inconvenience and hope to return to normal hours as soon as possible.
Over the last few months the Seven Valleys Veterinary Hospital has been closely monitoring medical information regarding a new strain of the corona virus known as Covid-19. We, as always, are strong believers in preventative medicine, wellness, and safety, of our clients, patients, and medical staff. For this reason, the Seven Valleys Veterinary Hospital supports the practice of social distancing and want to do our part to provide care for our patients while helping slow the spread of Covid-19. We will continue to see patients for as long as possible but have initiated the following new protocols in response to Covid-19 effective immediately.
