Important COVID-19 Information
Now that the first case of COVID-19 has been documented in the Lehigh Valley, it is time for serious consideration and discussion regarding the safety of our clients and staff as it pertains to face to face interactions in our offices.
First and foremost, there are members of our community who, by virtue of their pre-existing health or immune status, should not be communing in public places for their own safety. If your pet needs an appointment with our nursing staff or doctors, or you have business that must be done within the office, we ask that you consider your own safety first if you are at increased risk, and consider our safety and the safety of other clients if you have reason to believe you may have been exposed to COVID-19, or if you are generally not feeling well and, particularly, if you have symptoms of fever, cough and shortness of breath. Consider limiting the number of people arriving to the appointment with your pet. Consider a “drop-off” appointment if you do not want to or cannot be in the building among other people. Depending on the severity of this health crisis over the next few days and weeks, it may be wise to consider delaying well visits until a safer time.
We are committed to the health and well-being of your pets. We are also committed to the safety of our clients and staff. Rest assured that we have instructed our staff to wipe down all surfaces possible with disinfectant as often as possible, but this should not be a substitute for the role that your own personal hygiene will play in your safety and the spread of this disease.
Finally, as a reminder, there is no evidence to date that your pets can be involved with the spread of this disease. However, known or suspected infected individuals should minimize contact with your pets.

It means the absolute world that you trust us with the life and health of your pet! We are devoted to the highest quality of care, and thank you for helping us accomplish our goal!
Please do not hesitate to contact either of our offices with any questions or concerns you may have.
Lehigh Valley Animal Hospital hopes you all stay safe, healthy, and happy!
