COVID-19 UPDATE

COVID-19 Update
In accordance with the Governor’s executive orders, Veterinary Dermatology Service is currently seeing patients with significant chronic or urgent medical needs. We are currently postponing routine exams. We are operating with limited clinic hours and are also making the following changes:

  • Clients will not be allowed in the hospital.
  • Clinic staff are wearing masks and gloves.
  • All medication and food are being dispensed via contactless pick up.
  • We have added additional cleaning and disinfecting to our already rigorous cleaning standards, including high touch surfaces like doorknobs and countertops.
  • Telemedicine appointments are available in appropriate circumstances, for clients and patients with established relationships with our practice.

Clients with appointments should call 612-928-8097 when arriving in the parking lot. If the line is engaged, please leave a message that you have arrived. We will return your call as soon as possible. A team member will ask you questions related to your pet’s visit, and then come to your car to transport your pet into the hospital. You will not be permitted to enter the hospital.

Dr. Globus will perform her exam and then contact you via phone to discuss next steps, so it is important that your phone is accessible and you remain close to the clinic. We will have you pay by phone and then deliver your pet back to your car along with any medications and supplies dispensed.

In order to mitigate the exposure of clients and staff to coronavirus:

  • Please let us know if you or anyone in the pet’s household is displaying symptoms of COVID-19, such as, fever, cough, or shortness of breath. We will need to reschedule your appointment.
  • Please let us know if you or anyone in the pet’s household has tested positive for
    COVID19. We will need to reschedule your appointment.

Medication refill will be arranged by phone, and then made available in the vestibule (if appropriate, will be refrigerated until arrival).

Protecting the health of our clients and employees is critical to our being able to provide care to our patients who need it most. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate this situation.
We are continuing to monitor updates and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) and the MN Department of Health.
