Corona Virus Policy: Effective March 15, 2020 (until further noticed) we have suspended all in-home euthanasia and in-home consultation services to help minimize the spread of the corona virus (COVID-19) from one family to another. Dr. Sara believes that this decision, while difficult, is in the best and most compassionate interest of you, your family and her staff. Dr. Sara will continue to offer phone consultation services to discuss your pet's quality of life and pain management needs while the corona virus passes.

For new information (i.e. article) on the spread of the corona virus by "seemingly well" persons, please click here. Article takeaways:
1. A study posted Sunday by Belgian and Dutch researchers shows that between 48% and 66% of the people in the Singapore cluster contracted the infection (i.e. corona virus) from someone who was pre-symptomatic (i.e. seemingly well). Of the people in the Tianjin cluster, between 62% and 77% caught it from someone that was pre-symptomatic. Conclusion: Seemingly well folks "unknowingly" spread the corona virus more rapidly than symptomatic folks.
2. The viral load (i.e. strength of the virus) of the specimens from the asymptomatic (i.e. seemingly well) patients was higher than the viral load of those patients who did have symptoms (i.e. sick patients). Conclusion: The virus is stronger in seemingly well folks than in symptomatic folks.
While you, we, or another mobile veterinarian might feel "well" today, it seems prudent to suspend all in-home services (i.e. even outside services) to help minimize airosolized and/or contact exposure to the corona virus. We will resume our in-home services when we feel it is "safe" to do so. Until then, we would recommend that a sole member of your family takes your pet to a local veterinary clinic after saying your goodbyes at home. While we value your business, we value your continued health even more!
