March 21st, 2022: COVID-19 Update

As Ontario moves into the next phase of managing Covid-19 for the long term, we are now shifting to a more balanced response to the pandemic.

We will continue to remain open to serve you for all your pet care needs and maintain our current health and safety measures within the hospital. Hand sanitizers are still available at your convenience, and social distancing is still suggested for the comfort of everyone. Our bathroom is now open for our client’s use.

As of March 21st, 2022, the mask requirements are being lifted within most indoor settings, which includes veterinary clinics. Masks and face coverings can be worn at the client’s discretion in the waiting room, though we ask clients to respect the comfort of others by still maintaining proper social distancing.

Because of this, we ask that you still call to check in if you see that the waiting area has five people or more. We ask that only one client comes in per appointment, so that other appointments may come in and wait. We continue to accommodate by appointment only.

The same recommendations apply for retail and medication pick up, and we suggest you call ahead to make sure your purchase is available for pick up.

Due to their size, physical exams will take place in the treatment area and the doctor will return to discuss any concerns. Our doctors and staff are in contact with many people on a regular basis, if one of our staff falls ill, it could be catastrophic for the whole clinic. We ask for understanding and assistance in this time of safety consciousness.

All exam rooms are still being disinfected and cleaned after each appointment; we appreciate your patience as this may cause some delays in scheduling times.

We remain vigilant of all updates coming from the College of Veterinarians and the Ontario government. We will continue forward, remaining cautious while serving the needs of our clients.

Thank you for your cooperation during these unprecedented times.

We wish your families and pets the utmost health and safety.

Keeping Our Hospital Safe During COVID-19 Outbreak

Safety of our staff members and clients is a priority at Beattie Pet Hospital and it is important that our hospital remains open to serve the needs of our pet community.

We are taking added precautions to keep our clients and employees safe.
Precautions we have implemented in Hospital:

  • Disinfecting exam rooms and common reception area after clients leave
  • Janitorial services after hours
  • Reduced number of staff working in hospital
  • Reduced volume of clients coming in
  • Increased hand sanitizers around hospital and client area for use by staff and clients
  • Social distancing in exam rooms with staff and clients
  • Requesting clients to wait in car or go home while diagnostics are happening at hospital
  • Having clients who are healthy and do not have symptoms sanitize their hands

We are doing our part as best we can during these times and are staying updated accordingly, as new information continues to come out.

Our Staff is kindly asking that you advise us if:

  • If you have been in contact anyone who is in self-quarantine or who has tested positive for COVID-19
  • If you are experiencing any fever, cough, difficulty breathing, muscle aches, fatigue or any other flu-like symptoms
  • If you have traveled outside of the country in the last two weeks

Let us know and we will guide you appropriately on how to proceed to seek care for your pet.

Thank You for your understanding and we look forward to helping your pets in the best way possible,

The Beattie Team.
