COVID-19 Notice

To our valued Clients;

Dr Gabel and staff want to share with you our new (temporary) protocols for serving you and your pet family members during these changing times.

We feel it is important to inform you of the steps we are taking to keep you and our staff safe. The information and procedures are changing sometimes daily. We want to assure you, that your personal safety, our staff’s safety, and the safety of you animals are our Number 1 Priority.

  • Currently we are implementing the recommended steps of wiping down our clinic in between pet visits, and wiping down our lobby and keeping the recommended social distancing. We are using appropriate personal protective equipment as needed.
  • We are operating via curbside assistance for your animal. Call us when you arrive in our parking lot and a Technician will come out to you and bring your pet in. Same procedure is used for medication pickup.
  • Dr Gabel, will examine your pet, and call you to discuss exam findings, treatment options or diagnostic decisions to be made together.
  • If you currently have an upcoming appointment, we will call you the day prior, and you can decide if you are comfortable bringing your pet in. If not, we will be happy to reschedule your appointment to a later date.
  • We also want you to call us if there is something your pet needs. If we do not have it, then we encourage you to shop on our on-line store at frontporchanimalclinic.vetsfirstchoice.com. They have a lot to offer and a bit of the proceeds helps us keep the doors open. We really do appreciate your support.

THANK YOU ALL. for your understanding and flexibility during this uncertain time, we are continuing to update and change procedures as recommended. We realize you may have questions and concerns, please feel free to call us.

The American Animal Hospital Association supports the concept of veterinary hospitals as essential businesses that provide critical healthcare to companion animals, horses, and livestock, as well as vital public health monitoring and management of potential animal illnesses. Veterinary services are essential to the wellbeing of pet owners, who rely on companion animals and think of them as family members, and to the public, as veterinarians often are on the frontlines in animal welfare and food-supply safety, as well as in issues related to animal-human interaction.

Adopted by the American Animal Hospital Association Board of Directors March 2020.
