City Pets is pleased to announce that we are re-opening our house call practice to address your pet’s medical needs on Wednesday, July 1st, with appointments being accepted starting Monday, June 22. We will resume in-home care for your pet’s wellness, routine health and vaccination needs, as these are the essential elements for maintaining your pet’s overall health.
We have spent many hours researching the safest way to make veterinary home visits in the face of Covid-19 -- from reviewing American Veterinary Medical Association and CDC guidelines to understanding New York State’s requirements and advice, as well as to working with veterinary schools like Cornell and Penn -- and we know that we can do this safely.
Some procedures will be changed for reasons of safety and efficiency. In addition, as much information as possible will be gathered by phone before we visit, rather than at the time of the visit, in order to minimize contact. Finally, our house call hours will be different and the appointment slots will be limited because it will take our Team extra time to implement the evidence-based infection control protocols necessary for each house call visit.
We intend to take all measures necessary to conduct our practice safely for everyone, even while we strive to provide you the highest standard of compassionate veterinary care in the safety and comfort of your own home that you expect and deserve from City Pets.
Please keep an eye out for a detailed email explaining the new, safe house call procedures. Reminder, on June 22, we will start taking appointments for house calls on July 1 and following. We look forward to caring for your pets in person once again. To learn more, call us at (212) 581-7387 (212-581-PETS).
