COVID-19 UPDATE March 2022

At the current time, the Eye Clinic for Animals is providing curbside service for our patients. Call when you arrive, leave a message if we do not answer, and we will get back to you as soon as possible. An assistant will bring your pet in for examination, and Dr. Cooley will call you after the exam, while you are still in our parking lot.

 

We have delayed having owners with pets inside the Eye Clinic for examination, due to the new variant of COVID recently reported. This is subject to change in the future. 

 

WHEN we welcome clients with pets back into the Eye Clinic we will have some changes in our examination process as compared to years past.  This process will be as follows:

 

PLEASE CALL US FIRST!

 

When you arrive at the Eye Clinic, for any reason, call the office first, and leave your name and cell phone number if you are asked to leave a message. We will call back as soon as we can. This includes medication pickups, for which we only provide curbside. We are permitting one client with each pet for an examination, however, we request that you wait in your car, or in Suite B waiting room (which has a restroom you can use), until you are called. 

 

You will be asked to SIGN A WAIVER as you enter the Eye Clinic, that you have not had symptoms of COVID, tested positive for COVID, nor have been exposed to a person with COVID within the last 10 days. 

 

If you have signs of respiratory infection (coughing, sneezing, sore throat, etc.), we request that you NOT enter the Eye Clinic, and we will provide curbside service. 

 

If you have a FEVER, please RESCHEDULE your appointment.

 

MASKS will be worn while in the Eye Clinic, regardless of vaccination status. If you choose not to wear a mask, we will offer our curbside service ONLY. 

 

If you need to have 2 people present at the examination, either choose our curbside service and Dr. Cooley will call after the exam, OR have 1 person come into the exam, and use your cell phone on speaker for additional people to hear the results. Our exam rooms are very small. Eye Clinic for Animals staff will be holding your pet during the eye examination. 

 

Please help keep us safe so that we can continue to provide eye care for your wonderful pets!

 

We look forward to seeing you with your pet again!
