COVID-19: Update March 17th 2020

EMBRUN VETERINARY SERVICES – UPDATE MARCH 17 2020

As we all know, news regarding the Covid-19 pandemic is rapidly changing. With this in mind, Embrun Veterinary Services would like to make clear what our policies are at this time. We are trying to minimise public contact and keep our vets and staff healthy so we can continue to serve you. Embrun Veterinary Services would like to assure our clients that none of the vets nor staff have travelled in the last two weeks. So far we are all healthy and symptom free.

  1. If you require medication – WE WILL DROP IT OFF TO YOU AT NO CHARGE (AS USUAL). Please call or text the office (not the veterinarians) with your order as early in the day as possible and we will get it to you. Text office: 613-917-9621 or call: 613-443-5489
  2. If you feel you absolutely must come to the office, please call beforehand, it will be ready when you arrive.
  3. For farm visits – we will be asking you if anyone has been travelling and returned home within the last two weeks and where they have travelled to. You may be asked to identify the sick animal and not be present when the vet is there. It will be decided case by case. WE WANT TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR ANIMALS – but we also have to be socially responsible and take care of ourselves as well. Be assured, we are all washing and disinfecting everything we touch!

As indicated by the email sent yesterday, the Producer Day has been cancelled and will be planned when everything returns to normal. If there are any questions or suggestions, please let us know. We are all in this together, and together we will overcome all obstacles thrown in our path!

COVID-19: Clinics adjustment

Embrun Veterinary Services would like to inform you of what we are doing to lessen the impact of Covid-19 in our community. With much regret, we have taken the decision to cancel our Producer Meeting. It will be rescheduled when the current health crisis has passed.

The offices in Embrun and Casselman are open and we have and will continually be disinfecting and cleaning the premises. With both you and our staff’s welfare in mind, we are suggesting you call us for medication drop offs. As per our policy, there is no charge for this drop off service. We ask that you call as early as possible to have the same day service. If you decide to come to the clinic for one reason or another, we will be disinfecting as necessary in an attempt to “flatten the curve” of this fast spreading disease.

Please know that you, your families, and your animal’s welfare are our chief concern. If you have any questions, please call us 613-443-5489. We are here to help you through this crisis. There are better times ahead.
