March 27, 2020: COVID-19 Update
In light of recent developments in the COVID-19 pandemic, and in adherence to CDC and WHO guidelines for the safety and protection of everyone, we will be temporarily adjusting some of our hospital policies. We will be transitioning to providing appointments primarily through our concierge service. We kindly ask that our clients call us once they arrive for their appointment. At that time, an FVH team member will come out to the parking lot, retrieve your pet and bring him or her into the hospital for their exam. We will then discuss treatment and plan options via phone. Once completed, we will return your pet to you, curbside.
Similarly, for medication pick-up, we ask that you please call once you have arrived and a team member will deliver medications to you.
In-person appointments will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
We will also continue to offer a telemedicine consultation option by phone to existing clients. If your pet’s condition warrants a full in-person exam, one may still be recommended, but this may be an option to address many health concerns.
As always, if you are ill or quarantine has been recommended by health officials, please stay home.
Please see our COVID-19 Hospital Protocol for more detailed information on steps we are taking to keep everyone safe.
Thank you for your understanding while we do our part to keep everyone safe. Our Team at Fairfax Veterinary Hospital will continue to be here for you and your furry loved one.
