COVID-19 Update New Message April 6th To Our Pet Parents Quince Orchard Veterinary Hospital Still Closed But, we are here for you! Please EMAIL us! QOVHcorona@gmail.com
Quince Orchard Veterinary Hospital is still Closed for “Non Essential” visits due to Governor Hogan’s “Stay at Home Order” and the Guidance of the Maryland Veterinary Board. The Guidance states: Maryland Veterinary Hospitals should postpone all routine or elective surgical procedures including spays and neuters, dentals, wellness exams, routine vaccinations except rabies, rechecks, grooming and nail trims. Any Essential services must be done while observing CDC guidelines for social distancing and preserving PPEs.
Our Veterinarians are using our new email address email@example.com to communicate with Pet Parents about their pet’s medical problems, They can arrange telemedicine appointments or “essential” appointments to be seen at the hospital. Unfortunately, due to our limited staffing and hours, we’re still having to refer cases requiring more involved testing and treatments to our local emergency hospitals.
We can fill prescriptions for medicine and food for prepaid “Porch Pick-Ups”. Drs review emails from 10 to 12 Monday thru Friday responding in 24 hours. The emergency hospitals continue to call our Drs. about serious cases and email us daily with details about your pets’ emergency visits.
While we wait for the Corona Virus to subside in Maryland, we will try to protect the health of Our Pet Parents and Our Staff by practicing social distancing, wearing PPEs, and keeping Pet Parents Outside of the Hospital. We are not answering the Hospital phones so we can reduce staff in the building. So, please use our email firstname.lastname@example.org to communicate with us.
Local Emergency Hospitals are busy and have specific Covid19 protocols, so please call ahead.
