COVID-19 Clinic Updates

An update from our practice on COVID-19

To help prevent the spread of novel coronavirus, and continue servicing all clients, we’ve compiled some online resources to
help us navigate the next few weeks. Please check back regularly, and watch your email for updates from our team. (See below) 

Pet Health Checker

Use Pet Health Checker to help you decide if your pet’s symptoms require immediate attention or if you should continue to monitor those symptoms at home.

Food & Prescriptions

If you require food and/or prescription refills, we recommend using our online store. If you prefer to pick up your prescription using our curbside service, please call our clinic at 517-676-5422 or fill out our online medication request form so we can start getting your medication ready for you. 

Client Education

Worried about COVID-19 and your pets? Stay up to date on all current facts and figures about what this means for us and our furry family members.

Appointments 

We are currently able to see appointments for essential visits using our Curbside Appointment service. Please complete the Curbside Appointment Form prior to your appointment time to help make things run more efficiently and smoothly. 

Clinic Response to COVID-19: UPDATE March 23, 2020

To all of our friends and clients:

In light of the recently released executive order, we want to reassure our clients that we will be remaining open to provide needed care for your furry family members.
Veterinary practices are considered an essential business for the community. Veterinarians contribute to the public health of our community through the care of companion animals. Well over half of U.S. households own a dog, cat, or both. In addition, millions of exotic animals, birds, and reptiles are kept as pets. Veterinarians are essential to help educate the public about prevention of zoonotic diseases; vaccinate pets for zoonotic diseases, such as rabies and leptospirosis; and reduce the level of ectoparasites, such as fleas and ticks, that can transmit human diseases and intestinal worms, such as roundworms and hookworms. Private practice veterinarians form a valuable front line for detecting adverse health events, reducing zoonotic diseases, and delivering public health information.
We will continue to offer care via our new curbside appointment system. These appointments allow us to maintain the social distancing recommended by the CDC and World Health Organization while still allowing us to care for your pets. We will continue to refill prescriptions at the clinic via curbside service. If you would prefer to stay at home, we encourage you to use our online store for refills or preventative medications.
We will be limiting appointments to those pets with essential medical needs and for vaccines and prevention that are crucial to preventing zoonotic diseases. Non-essential appointments include routine nail trims or other cosmetic procedures. If you have any questions or need clarification, please do not hesitate to contact us at (517)676-5422.
While the executive order is in effect, we may be changing our office hours. We will keep everyone updated and informed as additional information becomes available.

Sincerely, Your Friends at Patterson Veterinary Hospital

Clinic Response to COVID-19: UPDATE March 16, 2020

To all of our friends and clients:

We wanted to update you and let you know that based on current CDC and World Health Organization recommendations for safety during the COVID-19 outbreak, we will be implementing curbside appointments whenever possible. These appointments will help to reduce person-to-person contact and improve safety for you and our staff.

If you are able to, please fill out and complete the online curbside appointment form before your visit. If you do not have online access, please either stop at the front desk to pick up these documents or call from your car when you arrive so we can bring these documents to you. When the forms are complete, we will collect the forms and your pet to perform an examination in the building while you wait in your car. We will continually contact you with updates about your pet’s exam findings and any further treatment recommendations.

Our concern is always for the safety of your pet and you; our goal is to make this process as easy as possible in a difficult time. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns at 517-676-5422.

Sincerely, Your Friends at Patterson Veterinary Hospital

Clinic Response to COVID-19

To all of our friends and clients:

There is obviously a great deal of uncertainty regarding COVID-19 and how it will continue to impact us as we move forward. We would like to take a moment to reassure everyone that we are committed to protecting the health of our clients, patients, and staff. As always, we will continue to observe appropriate cleaning and sanitizing in accordance with recommendations made by the CDC.

You can help us with our goal of protecting the public health by staying at home if you have symptoms of COVID-19 (fever, respiratory illness, shortness of breath). If you have any of these symptoms and feel that your pet needs to be seen, or if you have concerns about entering the premises, please call us at 517-676-5422. There may be ways for us to continue to provide care for your pets while protecting your health as well as ours.

At this time we have no intention of closing or discontinuing service. We will do our best to keep everyone updated as the situation evolves, and we appreciate your patience and cooperation as we all work through this difficult time together.

Sincerely, Your Friends at Patterson Veterinary Hospital
