Country Animal Hospital COVID-19 Protocol Update August 2021
We at Country Animal Hospital want to thank everyone for their patience, and support as all of us have weathered the stress and anxiety associated with Covid-19.
Due to the new Delta Variant we have moved our practice back to curbside effective 8/13/2021.
We request that you call from your car when you arrive, ( 502-267-7444 ), so we can provide direction; one of us will guide you through the curbside process.
If you are needing a refill prescription, we request that you call ahead a few days so we can have it prepared for your arrival. Please pull up parallel to Country Animal Hospital, call from your car, and one of us will bring your meds/medicated food to your car, and proceed with payment options.
The positive aspect of performing curbside care is you still get to have one-on-one time with your veterinarian, Dr Reinhart. We have been able to keep up with the demand for veterinary services by performing curbside visits, to protect our clients and employees during Covid-19 & the Delta Variant, while still providing high quality medical care for your pets.
Those of us employed at Country Animal Hospital will continue to wear our masks when interfacing with clients. We would appreciate if you would wear a mask to protect those individuals that might be immunocompromised.
Thank you again for your understanding, and support. We wish all of our friends and family safety, and peace of mind during these turbulent times.
Why do our pets need surveillance screening?
Firstly, our pets can't speak, they cannot tell us if they feel off color or unwell or have any other indicators of internal illness. We need to examine them every 6 months as well as run some routine screening tests to detect underlying disease BEFORE it is clinically apparent.
Secondly, pets will actively mask signs of illness until late in the course of disease. This stems from survival instincts in a pack or colony situation.
Use the age chart below to find your pets age in "people" years and the screening testing recommended for each stage of his or her life.
We believe the following tests give us the best chance of helping your pet's live longer, healthier lives.
