COVID-19 Coronavirus Update

March 12, 2020

In light of global precautions for the COVID-19 Coronavirus, and, building upon recommendations from the World Health Organization (WHO), the Sheepshead Bay Veterinary Group is taking a new approach to “business as usual”. Beginning Monday, March 16, 2020, appointments to see your Veterinarian will only be available in 30-minutes intervals. While this limits their availability, our hope is that this will limit waiting time and, therefore, any potential exposure to COVID-19 Coronavirus. In addition, we are being proactive in our efforts to help clients limit potential exposure to the virus. We kindly remind our customers that hand sanitizer and restroom facilities are available at all times.

We would also like to remind you that the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) is actively involved in determining the zoonotic aspects, if any, of the COVID-19 Coronavirus. At this time, there is no evidence of human-animal transmission, or vice-versa.

Thank you in advance for your continued support. We look forward to continuing to service our community during this difficult time.

Sincerely,  Sheepshead Bay Veterinary Group
