COVID-19 Update

Dear Greenway Pet Clinic Clients:

The global spread of COVID-19 is a concern for everyone.  I wanted to let you know that Greenway Pet Clinic has also taken some extra preventative measures to ensure everyone’s safety, clients and employees alike.

Upon entering the clinic, we will have (and always have had) hand sanitizer for your use. Please feel free to use it before and after your appointment. I just ask that you use it sparingly as I was busy working when everyone else was buying toilet paper, paper towels, and hand sanitizer.

While we have always cleaned our exam rooms after each appointment, we are taking our disinfecting to a whole new level. This means it may take a bit more time to get you and your fur baby into an exam room, we just want to make sure it is clean and safe.

I ask that if you are sick, stay home and do not bring your pet in. Please find someone else to bring your pet in if he or she needs to be seen. I want to try to accommodate all of our patients, but won’t be able to do that if my staff and I get sick.

Any staff member who starts to feel sick will be sent home and asked to go get tested. If they do have the Coronavirus, they will have to stay home a minimum of two weeks or 24 hours past resolution of signs if longer than two weeks.

Right now, as far as I know there is one confirmed case and two other presumptive positive cases in Tucson. I pray that people are diligent and do all the things suggested to slow the spread of this virus. So be smart, be safe and take care, Carole Treat DVM

P.S. And now on the lighter side, a little humor…

Dear Greenway Pet Clinic Clients:

The global spread of COVID-19 is a concern for everyone. I wanted to let you know that Greenway Pet Clinic has also taken some preventative measures to ensure everyone’s safety, clients and employees alike.

We are continuing to do curbside service only, with the exception of end of life appointments. We appreciate peoples understanding about not entering the clinic. It is for everyone’s safety to keep a distance and not be confined in a small space. We also ask that clients wear masks when interacting with the staff. We wear masks continually inside so we can provide care to your pets and not spread the virus between each other.

I ask that if you are sick, stay home and do not bring your pet in. Please find someone else to bring your pet in if he or she needs to be seen. I want to try to accommodate all our patients but won’t be able to do that if my staff and I get sick.

In addition to daily temperature checks upon starting a shift and wearing a mask, any staff member who starts to feel sick will be sent home and asked to go get tested. If they do have the Coronavirus, they will have to stay home a minimum of ten days or 24 hours past resolution of signs if longer than ten days.

I am not sure when this curbside protocol will end. Unfortunately, this pandemic is far from being under control. I am looking forward to the day when the infection rate is under control and we can again have some sense of normalcy.

Please be safe and take care, Carole Treat DVM
