Coronavirus (COVID-19) Info


COVID-19 UPDATE: We are now scheduling safe and easy pet visits.

Updated: August 5, 2020
 
We are taking all the necessary precautions to implement modified operations that protect both our clients and staff. Our pet visits are designed to be 100% contact-free for our clients. 
We will continue curbside check-in and check-out to allow for social distancing between clients and our healthcare team. Upon arrival at our office, call us at 954-722-2100 to let us know that you have arrived. We will call you, once one of our staff is ready to pick up your pet. We are asking our clients to minimize the possible exposure, to wear a mask and have pet ready on the leash or in the carrier outside the vehicle when your pet is ready to be picked up by our staff.
 
Please note that we are not accepting walk-ins while Coronavirus is still a concern. Please call the clinic for availability if your pet needs immediate attention.
 
We know a lot of pet parents will have questions about their pets’ care while we adapt our clinic services and operating procedures due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We sincerely appreciate your patience and understanding during this time. Since issues related to Coronavirus are constantly changing, we will post updates on this page, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. 
 
We look forward to seeing you and your pet soon.

To Our Customers and Friends at Animal Wellness Clinic of Tamarac:

We’ve made the difficult decision to close the clinic for the next two weeks to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19 due to possible exposure.  As always, our top priority is the health and safety of our patients, employees, customers, partners, and the community.  

We look forward to reopening as soon as it is safe to do so. We will share the most up-to-date information on our website and across social media platforms. Please visit tamaracvet.com for more details.

If you had an appointment scheduled during this time, we will contact you to reschedule. If you wish to make an appointment after Wednesday, August 5th, 2020, we are asking you to leave your name, telephone number, and a reason for your call, and we will get back to you within 24 hours.

If you have specific questions not addressed here or on our website, reach out to us at 954 – 929-8448 or 954-909-7001. We’re still available to answer your questions and respond to any concerns.

We’re working diligently to adapt to new circumstances while planning for the future. Our customers have always been the heart of our clinic. We’re grateful to you and your ongoing support. Our thoughts remain with you and your families during this unprecedented time. Stay well, and we look forward to the opening of our clinic again soon.

To our Valued Customers:

The health and well-being of your pet is our top priority. As news of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in our community continues to develop, we are monitoring the situation closely.

Currently, our clinic remains open and is operating under regular business hours.

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have been focused on providing continued care for pets while at the same time protecting the safety of our associates and clients alike. Thank you for your understanding, patience, and continued support.

Veterinary care is deemed an essential service by states across the country. This essential service designation further supports the desire of our doctors and healthcare team members to provide care to your beloved pets during this challenging time.

Below is a summary of some of the new and existing measures taken during this difficult time: 

  • New curbside check-in and check-out to allow for social distancing between clients and our healthcare team.
  • Revised team member workflows inside the clinic to recognize social distancing best practices.

While the CDC and other health authorities have indicated that dogs, cats, and other domestic animals are not considered at risk for contracting COVID-19, we are taking extra precautions to ensure the health and safety of humans within our facility— notably our clients and staff. Keeping our practice clean has always been a priority for us and continues to be so. Additionally, for the safety of our team and your family we are monitoring CDC recommendations and will continue to increase our attention to cleaning frequency and methods accordingly. We work closely with our staff to ensure that anyone who is not feeling well understands that we support them staying at home if necessary.

To our customers:

  • If you are feeling ill or experiencing flu-like symptoms and have an upcoming wellness (not critical) appointment, we kindly ask that you call us to reschedule.
  • If you are healthy with no signs of illness, please bring your animal to our hospital and practice social distancing, including no physical touching, appropriate hand washing and keeping 6-10 feet of distance from others in the clinic.
  • If your pet requires urgent care or has a medical emergency, and you are ill, please arrange for a trusted friend, neighbor, or healthy family member to transport your pet to our hospital. If you call ahead, we will gladly accommodate your representative and make appropriate arrangements.
  • If you do not have a trusted friend, neighbor, or healthy family member to transport your pet, please call when you arrive at our hospital and remain in your vehicle with your animal.

For more information and health guidance regarding COVID-19, please visit the CDC or WHO websites. For additional questions, please contact us at (954) 884-8949.

 

Thank you for your patience and cooperation. We look forward to seeing you and your pet soon.
