COVID-19: Additional measures we are taking

Dear Clients,

Due to the close contact that our work requires, we have taken additional measures to protect you and our team while providing care for your furry family members

We are not accepting new patients at this time due to higher than normal case-loads, and pet boarding services are suspended until further notice. Thank you for your understanding. 

Note: If you are experiencing respiratory symptoms, please let us know when you book your pet’s appointment. As the potential to spread to pets is still relatively unknown, it is possible that your pet could create a risk to other people who may be handling him or her. Whenever possible, please send someone who is not experiencing respiratory symptoms to the appointment with your pet.

The following changes are effective as of March 2nd, 2022:

Thank you for helping us be diligent for everyone's safety. As we have heard from all levels of government, the situation is fluid and any updates will be provided as changes occur. 

If you have any further questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out by email at info@southburnabyvethospital.com or by phone at 604-526-0334.
