The COVID-19 virus and pandemic is constantly changing. We are learning new information and new questions are coming to light constantly. Recently, two cats and one dog in the United States have tested positive for COVID-19. All of these animals came into contact with a person who tested positive for COVID-19. These animals showed minimal to no symptoms. According to the CDC, there is no evidence at this time of the COVID-19 virus spreading from a pet to a person.
If you test positive for COVID-19 and you have one or more pets at home, the CDC is recommending that you isolate yourself from your pet if possible. Continue normal hand washing before an after interacting with your pet(s), and follow all other guidelines that you would with human interaction.
For more information, please refer to the CDC website https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/faq.html#animals
We offer both preventative care services (much like your visits to the dentist), along with dental x-rays and tooth extractions. Good oral hygiene is the best thing that you can do to ensure a longer life, with less health concerns, for your pet. Call us to schedule a dental exam or service.x
Laboratory services are a vital part of the diagnostic process when it comes to veterinarian care. This is because in many cases it is not possible to be able to give a firm diagnosis without undertaking additional tests to confirm the root of the problem. If you have any questions or concerns your vet will be happy to speak to you.x
