UPDATE AS OF 5/26/2020
We would like to keep you updated on Sand Creek Animal Hospital’s procedures as we transition to person Doctor visits. Thank you for your understanding.
1) If you have COVID, have any symptoms to COVID, or if you have been in contact with someone who has COVID in the last 10 days and you have an appointment with us please contact us IMMEDIATELY. We will need to reschedule your appointment.
2) This transition will be gradual and start with doctor appointments for your pets. Appointments for technicians and for your pets being admitted for laser therapy, diagnostic procedures, and surgery will continue to be curbside for the time being. We will also continue curbside service for medication pick up.
3) To help handle the increased volume of phone calls, our concierge will meet you in the parking lot to check you in for your appointment. Then a team member will contact you by phone to obtain a history. A team member will then meet you in the parking lot and will bring you and your pet into the hospital. The doctor will do an in person examination with you in the examination room. If you are picking up medications or you are not greeted by someone in the parking lot please call the hospital at 518-446-9171.
4) We will allow one pet parent into the building with their pet. We ask that additional individuals wait in your vehicle. If you arrive with children curbside service will be provided to you so you can remain in your vehicle with your children. Pet parents will be REQUIRED TO WEAR MASKS COVERING BOTH MOUTH AND NOSE at all times while in the hospital or interacting with the team in the parking lot.
5) Team members will NOT be allowed to reach into vehicles to get patients. Please help by getting your dog or cat carrier out of your vehicle. Please make sure your dog’s collar is tight enough that it will not slip over their head. If possible, please put small dogs in carriers. For your cat’s safety, all cats MUST be in a carrier.
5) We are not doing Nail Trim appointments at this time.
We are committed to the health and well-being of our healthcare team, clients, and patients. We apologize for the inconvenience that these changes may cause. We appreciate your patience during the difficult and unprecedented time. We will continue to send updates by email as changes happen.
