COVID 19 and Great Road Veterinary Hospital
Our Response to COVID-19
In these unprecedented times, veterinary hospitals across the country are working hard to adjust their procedures in real time to keep people and animals safe and healthy. Great Road Veterinary Hospital is currently open six days a week with reduced appointment hours to reduce necessary human-to-human contact. Please call our front desk to discuss scheduling.
Appointments are prioritized for sick patients and treatments that are essential for pet health where timing is a priority. As an example, we are nearing the peak of tick season so dogs due for their Lyme vaccines/flea and tick products are being seen in an abbreviated/technician visit with annual visits put off until the pandemic has substantially resolved. Dogs and cats due for rabies vaccines and puppies/young dogs/kittens/young cats with need for time dependent booster vaccines will also be seen. All environmental surfaces inside the clinic are regularly disinfected throughout the day.
When you arrive for your appointment, please stay in your car in the parking lot and call our front desk (978-263-0553). A gloved GRVH associate will come to your car to bring your pet into the hospital for treatment and will return with further instructions. We are still happy to fill prescriptions for medications and prescription foods. Orders will be left outside to the right of our front door in/next to the stainless-steel box. Please help us by having a credit card ready for payment to be given over the phone.
We are diligently checking the hospital’s email account during working hours (firstname.lastname@example.org). You are welcome to email us with any questions. We would like to remind all clients that if you have any respiratory symptoms, please stay at home and call our front desk with veterinary questions and be prepared for someone else to bring in your pet.
Note: Incidences of Covid-19 in domestic animals are not currently considered to be a serious concern but advice form reputable public health sources are, if you are sick with a respiratory infection, a possible or a confirmed Covid 19 case, your pet should be home quarantined with you. There are exceptions to this, and case by case evaluation is necessary. For further information, we recommend the following references:
