We are very excited to announce that we are now welcoming one masked person into the building per annual or medical appointment. Please remember that our building space is very small and given the expansion of the pet population over COVID, we are now seeing >50% more patients than we were two years ago. The pandemic offered us an opportunity to expand our building size by using our parking lot. We are very excited to have you back inside with us and appreciate your patience as we adjust to our increased volume in this very small space!
From the start of the pandemic, our goal has been to remain open and we have proudly achieved that. Given that there is still risk of contracting COVID and it spreading through our team (which could result in our clinic being closed, leaving your pet without care), we require anyone coming inside to wear a mask, including us. We are more than happy to continue to provide service curbside if you would rather not wear a mask or if you would rather stay outside.
Given our small space all medication/food pickups and booster vaccine appointments will remain curbside. Please also understand that this is our busiest season, and we may not have an exam room available at some of the busier times. If this is the case, we very much appreciate your patience as we too adjust to welcoming you back inside.
Dr. Scott Stevenson and the
Thousand Islands Veterinary Services Team
We also understand that the experience of coming to the vet clinic can make some pets nervous. We are striving to change that! We want all of our clients and their pets to feel as at ease as possible when they come in for an exam. We employ many different techniques to further this goal and we can give you tips and ideas of things that you can do at home to make your visit to the vet clinic as stress free as possible for you and your pets. We recently added on a new exam room that is gearing mainly for our feline patients! This room is on the other side of our office so that we can try to separate the cats from the dogs and try to lower the kitty's stress levels that way. This new exam room also features, a diffuser that emits 'happy cat' pheromones to help to lower anxiety as well as a tv that has an aquarium playing as well as fun wall shelves for the kitties to climb on while the vet and his/her owner talk.
