Hospital Operating Status and COVID-19 Information
In an effort to ensure a safe environment for all animal owners, visitors and OPVMC team members, we ask that you please avoid visiting our hospital if you are currently experiencing flu-like symptoms, including a fever and a cough, or if you or someone you have been in contact with have travelled to an affected area within the last 14 days.
We are temporarily suspending routine appointments and elective procedures. If you currently have an appointment/procedure scheduled one of our team members will be contacting you to reschedule. If you are not contacted please arrive for your appointment as scheduled or contact us to cancel your appointment.
We will continue to see patients with medical emergencies and urgent referrals.
If you are ill or have been potentially exposed to Covid-19 and have a veterinary emergency, please try to find a healthy friend or family member to accompany your pet to the hospital. If you cannot find someone to bring your animal to the hospital, please call ahead and inform us of your pet's issues and your health status at 716-662-6660.
With regard to bringing your animal to the OPVMC for an appointment, we encourage you to please limit the number of client/owners to one per patient.
Please be assured, within our hospital, we are conducting frequent cleanings and using appropriate disinfectants to help protect our hospital environment. Our clinicians and staff continue to practice safe hand hygiene, with clinical teams also wearing personal protective equipment as warranted. We are paying increased attention to social distancing and ask that you do the same during your visit.
We ask all visitors to our hospital to please practice preventive measures such as hand washing/sanitizing and covering coughs/sneezes using your sleeves or a disposable tissue. Together we will help ensure everyone’s personal safety.
We thank you for your understanding, patience and cooperation. Your help is greatly needed to ensure our hospitals remain operational during this time.
