At BluePearl Specialty & Emergency Pet Hospital, the health, safety, and wellbeing of our patients, staff, and the community is our number one priority. As the number of COVID-19 (coronavirus) cases continues to grow, many communities and businesses have adopted or are considering stronger measures to curb the virus’s spread. We, too, have adopted several strict measures to ensure the safety of our staff, clients, and the communities in which we serve.
As one of the country’s leading specialty and emergency veterinary medicine providers, we understand the important role our hospital’s play and are committed to keeping our doors open during this tumultuous time. Our goal to provide advanced, seamless care for clients and the referral community remains unchanged.
In an effort to maintain a safe and healthy environment for clients, pets, and our hospital teams, we are implementing the following procedures at all BluePearl Pet Hospitals (effective March 15, 2020).
Anyone displaying symptoms of COVID-19 (fever, cough, or shortness of breath) or who has traveled internationally or to an area in the U.S. with high incidence of COVID-19 in the last 14 days is advised to call ahead and/or from the car to discuss the situation. Each of our hospitals have plans in place to help ensure your pet receives the care it needs. This can include having a staff member in personal protective equipment meet you at your car to bring the pet into the hospital.
We thank you for your understanding and patience as we take these prudent precautions and will continue to keep you informed as information becomes available.
