Coronavirus- COVID 19

As coronavirus becomes a reality in our community we want to make sure that our clients and beloved patients know that River Cove Animal Hospital is here for them. 

The risk of infectious animal disease transmission is always present when you care for pets. That is why we have rigorous cleaning regiments and isolation routines to keep our patients safe. This has not changed. With that said we are taking greater precaution to prevent the transmission of human disease to ensure our client’s safety when they visit our hospital. In addition, we have taken steps to prevent and be prepared for drug and medical supply shortages that may arise. We have also developed plans to continue to provide medical care in the event of quarantines and other challenges.

The recent school closures and travel bans have added to the uncertainty around what the next weeks and months will bring. We want our community to know that they can rest assured that their pets medical needs will be met by River Cove Animal Hospital. We have been here for you for nearly 40 years and we will continue to be here for you.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns we are happy to help. Please email rivercove@rivercove.net or call us at (802)-879-7984.

What we are doing to keep you safe while still providing care:

  1. Curbside Care
  2. Telemedicine (Virtual Visits)
