A Note To Our Clients On COVID-19

We wanted to reach out to you during these difficult and uncertain times to let you know that we continue to take your pets health as well as your own health seriously. 

We will continue to remain open, God willing, to provide your furry family members with the health care that they need.  We have always taken infection control seriously, but in these trying times we are increasing our efforts at sanitation and cleanliness.  As always we try to schedule a lot of time for our appointments.  During this time we are increasing spacing between appointments so we can maximize social distancing.  We are doing whatever we can to help stop the spread of this virus.  We are closely following the recommendations provided by the CDC as well as the AVMA (American Veterinary Medical Association) and the Minnesota Board of Veterinary Medicine.  Please know that we value your health as much as those of your pets.

The other question that is circulating is the effect of COVID 19 on our beloved pets.  The AVMA has provided the following information, based on the latest knowledge:

  • Infectious disease experts and multiple international and domestic human and animal health organizations agree there is no evidence at this point to indicate that pets become ill with COVID-19 or that they can spread it to other animals, including people.
  • If you are not ill with COVID-19, you can interact with your pet as you normally would, including walking, feeding, and playing. You should continue to practice good hygiene during those interactions (e.g., wash hands before and after interacting with your pet; ensure your pet is kept well-groomed; regularly clean your pet’s food and water bowls, bedding material, and toys).
  • Out of an abundance of caution, it is recommended that those ill with COVID-19 limit contact with animals until more information is known about the virus. Have another member of your household take care of walking, feeding, and playing with your pet. If you have a service animal or you must care for your pet, then wear a facemask; don’t share food, kiss, or hug them; and wash your hands before and after any contact with them. 

There is an abundance of new information coming out all of the time.  Please stay informed.  We will do our best to pass on any new information that is important for your pets.  Follow our instragram for more information, also.

You and your pets are important to us and all of our staff.  We will continue to provide care in these trying times in whatever way we can.

Blessings and stay well,

Drs. Jon and Julie Woodman,
