We at Miller Animal Hospital want to continue to provide the care you have come to expect for your pets while also helping to slow the spread of COVID-19 and protecting our employees from being infected. It is important to note that to the best of our knowledge, dogs and cats cannot be infected by COVID-19. The following are the precautions that are being put in place:
1. We plan to remain open for regular business hours, though we may need to reschedule some appointments, and ask for your understanding during this time.
2. We are ONLY offering curbside appointments right now. Please call our front desk when you arrive. An assistant will come and get your animal. You will be called and be on speakerphone during your animal's exam. Your animal will then be delivered back to your vehicle, along with any required medications.
3. We will continue to refill prescriptions, but they will need to be placed and paid for over the phone. When you arrive to pick up your prescription, please call our front desk and it will be delivered to your car. Or, if more convenient, you can utilize our online pharmacy and have your medications shipped directly to you.
4. We will be routinely disinfecting door handles, credit card machines, counters, etc.
5. Our staff may be wearing gloves when taking payments. This is being done with an abundance of caution, as the virus can live on surfaces for a period of time.
6. We continue to ask that if you have any symptoms illness, fever, respiratory symptoms, etc. or have had contact with someone who has, please call us so we can find another way to accommodate you.
7. Please remember we have a trusted online pharmacy.
8. We have launched a telemedicine platform for telemedicine appointments, so you can connect with Miller Animal Hospital from home. Download TeleTails on the app store, enable notifications, create a profile, enter code "Miller" and start a consult. For further information about this application, go to teletails.zendesk.com
9. We will be operating with limited staff in the building and will have some limitations to our hours. We are NOT accepting walk in appointments or walk in requests for prescription refills. Please call ahead.
We thank you for your patience during this time.
