COVID 19

Please find the latest information on COVID-19 19. River Cove Animal Hospital is here for you during this crisis. 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 the last four decades 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)

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. Our staff has been divided into two teams that will be working separately to limit our social circles. We are wearing masks at all times.

We continue to offer curbside care. Though there has been a slow shift back to a more normal way of life the risk of the pandemic persists. For this reason we are still limiting access to our hospital. It is still vital that we limit interactions to keep you all safe. It is impossible to maintain adequate social distancing within an exam room experience. We appreciate your understanding. We continue to consider special circumstances that necessitate in person visits, like end of life situations.
