BUFFALO MOUNTAIN ANIMAL HOSPITAL UPDATE: CORONAVIRUS CONCERNS

Pet Owners of Summit County and Visitors with pets, WE ARE OPEN and available to care for your pets. We continue to keep the safety and health of our community, including our pets foremost in our priority and actions. In an effort to comply with CDPHE’s recent recommendations, we are doing our best to minimize risk to our community, families, and friends while still providing necessary medical support to the pets of Summit County. For the health and safety of our community, we have listed logistical changes we are implementing for appointments and sales of prescription food and medications below:

  • We require staff and clients to wear masks inside the clinic at all times.
  • We will space our appointments to decrease the number of people arriving at Buffalo Mountain Animal Hospital at any one time.
  • In an effort to adhere to the 6 foot social distance spacing, we may minimize/eliminate clients coming into the clinic.
  • When arriving for an appointment, please wait for a clear lobby in order to come in
  • We will then collect your pet and complete necessary examinations and treatments in the hospital.
  • We will consult by phone while you wait safely in your vehicle, returning your pet to you when the appointment is complete.
  • If you are picking up medications and/or prescription diets, please call when arriving at the clinic, and we will bring items to your car.
  • Please note there is a 30 minute loading and unloading space in addition to the parking spaces usually available in the front of the building.
  • Even with this minimal social contact, we request that pet owners notify us in advance if they have any symptoms of illness and cannot find someone else to attend the appointment, or pick up necessary food and medications for your pet.

As long standing providers of care for Summit County’s pets, the Buffalo Mountain Animal Hospital Team will continue to strive to provide excellent and necessary medical care while implementing practical solutions to minimize the risk of community spread of the coronavirus.
