|Alta Vista Animal Hospital OPEN with restrictions
To our clients and friends:
The doctors and staff at Alta Vista Animal Hospital are committed to being available for the needs of our patients and clients during the Covid-19 epidemic. At the same time, we are seeking ways to minimize potential exposure and spread of the virus in our community. As a result, we are initiating a policy of “curb-side service”. What this means is that our staff will meet you at your car to take a history. Your pet will then be taken into the clinic for examination and treatment. Food and medication pick-ups will also be done by delivery to your vehicle. All of this is a very different way of doing things and it won’t be easy. But we hope that fewer people entering the small spaces of our clinic will keep us all safer, both clients and staff, while allowing us to continue to care for our four-legged friends.
When you arrive at the clinic, please call us to announce your arrival. We will send a staff member out as quickly as possible to assist you.
Thank you for your patience and understanding. We will all get through this together.
Dear Second Chance Supporters,
Our pets are more important to our health right now than ever before. They are helping us get through the overwhelming daily changes to our lives. Second Chance is here to help keep our community’s pets together with their families. We are working to stock our Pet Food Bank and to safely provide wellness care and foster care, when needed.
