Worried About Coronavirus? Here's What We're Doing to Keep You Safe
Over the past few days, there’s been a lot of talk about the coronavirus and, understandably, people are alarmed. We take our commitment to our clients and patients very seriously and, because of that, we’re acting with caution to reduce potential risk.
Though we’re not aware of any presumed cases of coronavirus coming through our hospital, we wanted to let you know that we are taking the following measures to keep you safe:
- As a healthcare facility, we regularly disinfect our practice to keep you and your pets safe. Since concerns about the coronavirus popped up, we’ve stepped up our cleaning routine to make sure all surfaces are being frequently disinfected. We’ve also made hand sanitizer available throughout our hospital.
- We’re following the CDC’s recommendations and encouraging sick team members to stay home for the safety of your families and ours. We also ask that you call our office to reschedule your pet’s appointment if you’re exhibiting any respiratory symptoms.
- Though we’re remaining open during our normal business hours, we’re continuing to monitor recommendations made by state and local officials and will act in accordance.
About Hill's Pet Food Recall
Hill’s Pet Nutrition recently put out a voluntary recall on their canned food products due to potentially elevated levels of vitamin D. Although animals benefit from vitamin D, ingesting too much of it can lead to potential health issues. Luckily, in most cases, complete recovery is expected after discontinuation of the canned food.
Hill’s is working in coordination with the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to get the affected products recalled. As of right now, the recall only extends to canned food and does not apply to dry food, cat food, or other treats.
