I want to thank each of you for allowing us to care for your pets during these stressful days!
As you know, we have been following directions from the AVMA, FDA, CDC, NC and US government and NCVMB as to what we should do and also what we CAN do. Veterinarians and their staff have always been part of the frontline of infectious disease. For example, we have been entrusted to ensure that your pets stay current on their rabies vaccination in order to keep that disease from infecting people and other species. We are classified as essential workers, and we have seen many medical cases in the last few weeks that need our care. But we need your help to stay healthy and to be able to provide "essential" services. Here are the guidelines that we are following:
My prayers go out to our many health care workers that are actually on the front line caring for the people that are sick from this disease. Stay safe, stay home, wash your hands!
