COVID-19 Update for June 2020
Thank you for your continued support and patience during this challenging time of living and working during the Coronavirus Pandemic. We have made many changes to ensure that Temperance Animal Hospital remains ready and able to care for as many of your furry family members as possible. By closing our lobby to the public, practicing curbside service, dividing our Team into smaller teams, adjusting business hours, utilizing face coverings, using rigorous cleaning & disinfecting protocols, working remotely from home, and health screenings of our team members…we have be able to keep our entire Team healthy through this challenging time. Because of the success of this robust plan, we fully expect to be able to remain open through the remainder of Michigan’s State of Emergency.
We are sympathetic that some of these changes may cause some increased wait times and inconveniences on your part, but we hope that these temporary sacrifices are worth the long term benefits of TAH remaining available to care for your pets’ medical needs.
Governor Gretchen Whitmer has extended Michigan’s “Stay Home, Stay Safe!” order through June 12th. Under the current Executive Order, Veterinary Hospitals are now allowed to resume “non-essential” services in addition to the medical services we have been providing throughout the pandemic. At the recommendation of the Michigan Veterinary Board, we will continue to keep our lobby closed to the public and provide these “essential” and “non-essential” services through our curbside service. We will be gradually merging our medical teams through the month of June with the goal of addressing our backlog of requested surgeries, toenail trims, and other “non-essential” services. These “non-essential” services will be performed by appointment only, so please contact our Healthcare Team for scheduling information. If you are on our surgical waiting list, one of our Surgical Schedulers will be contacting you in the next few weeks to discuss options for proceeding with these surgeries. As a result of two months’ worth of restrictions, we have a large backlog of procedures…so we appreciate your ongoing patience as we work to complete these services as quickly as possible.
Our current hours remain:
Monday – Friday: 8:00 A.M. –12:00 P.M. and 1:30 P.M. -- 6:00 P.M.
Saturday: 8:00 A.M. – 2:00 P.M.
We will be closed Monday-Friday from 12:00 P.M. - 1:30 P.M. for Lunch and Cleaning
To comply with social distancing and to provide the safest environment for both our clients and staff, we ask that when you arrive, you call the hospital at 734-847-6751 from your vehicle. A staff member will gather information about your pet’s visit over the phone and bring your pet into the hospital for examination with the doctor. Our staff will be wearing a face mask for your safety…we ask that you return the favor by having your face mask on when our staff arrives at your vehicle. One of our doctors will discuss your pet’s condition with you on the phone and go over any diagnostics and treatments they recommend.
If your pet has a medical concern that needs addressed during hours that we are closed, please contact MedVet Toledo at (419) 473-0328 for medical attention.
Thank you again for your patience and cooperation. We are all in this together!
