Huntingdon Animal Clinic Open with COVID-19 Protocol

Posted

Huntingdon Animal Clinic remains open to serve clients and has enacted protocols to protect staff and clients during the coronavirus pandemic. A statement released by the clinic reads:

Due to the recent development of a positive case of coronavirus in Carroll County, Huntingdon Animal Clinic is implementing an alternative routine to help protect our patients, clients and staff. These changes will take effect immediately and are aimed at minimizing human contact, as recommended by the Tennessee Department of Health.

During this time, we ask that you call to check in your patient(s) and wait in your vehicle until called upon by a staff member. At this point, we will allow one client in the building with the patient(s) with the help of a staff member, provided the client is showing no signs of respiratory illness or fever and would like to enter the clinic with their patient(s). If you prefer not to enter the clinic, the staff member can take your patient(s) into the clinic and any communication required from this point will be made through phone calls.

We ask that clients who are elderly or have children with them remain in their vehicle and a staff member will bring your patient(s) into the clinic. Any communication required once your patient is in the clinic from this point will be made through phone calls.

Due to these changes, our phone lines may frequently be busy. Please be patient with us as we implement these changes and continue to serve you and your patient(s) as efficiently as possible.

As always, the health and care of your patient(s) will be our priority! Again, please be patient with us as we continue to adapt to this developing situation and thank you for your business!
