To the clients of Westlake Animal Hospital:
We are excited to announce that we are taking steps towards the full re-opening to the public! The health and well-being of your pet, family, and our team members are our top priority. We appreciate your patience and support over the last year and a half during the pandemic. We are closely monitoring the guidance from the CDC to ensure we are taking the appropriate precautions and actions to keep patients, clients, and employees healthy and safe during this time.
Starting July 14, 2021, we will be offering the option for one client to come inside with their pet for their scheduled doctor’s appointment. Curbside appointments are still an option if you prefer to remain in your vehicle for the duration of your visit. All other services will remain curbside until further notice (picking up foods or medications, and technician appointments).
With everyone’s safety in mind, our team will ask that you follow a few important safety protocols to ensure we can stay open:
1. If you are sick, have a fever, have been exposed to Covid-19, or if you tested positive for Covid-19 in the past two weeks, please reschedule your appointment.
2. If you have not been vaccinated against Covid-19, the CDC still recommends that face masks be worn while in public. If you prefer for the staff that are working with you to wear a mask, please do not hesitate to ask.
3. Try to maintain social distancing (6 feet apart) during your visit.
4. Limit to one owner in the building with your pet.
Regardless of what type of visit you prefer, please call our office at 727-938-1575 upon arrival for your appointment. We ask that you wait in your vehicle until we inform you that we are ready for you to enter the building. Our staff will check you and your pet in and escort you to an exam room when ready. We ask that you please stay seated throughout the duration of your appointment and remain in the exam room until checked out for your visit. The doctors may take your pet to our treatment room to do their exam.
We look forward to seeing you again! Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
The Doctors and Staff of Westlake Animal Hospital
