We at Selah Veterinary Hospital are monitoring the COVID 19 issue very closely. Due to the seriousness of the current times, following are some new changes we are having to make to protect not only our staff, but our clients and patients as well.
For an update - we continue to strive to do our best to provide you and your pets with the best care possible - while providing a safe environment to limit possible viral exposure between staff and all of our wonderful clients.
Yes - we are still open and here to help when and where we can. Due to the new coronavirus mandates and practicing safe care for our staff, you and your pets - THINGS ARE MOVING SLOWER - PLEASE EXPECT A WAIT IF WE ARE BUSY - THERE IS NO WAY AROUND IT !!! We have had numerous staff and veterinarians having to quarantine - so WAIT TIMES ARE LONGER !!! If your visit is not emergent, we advise waiting. Some days, if too many staff our out, we may have to close abruptly.
How we are operating at this time....
On arrival - you will check-in at the small side window in the parking lot area and then wait in you vehicle for your pet to be seen. We will continue to operate as curbside service. A tech will come out to your vehicle to get your animal, bring it in for exam, vaccines, etc. You will not be allowed into the hospital with your pet. If needed, a doctor will call you or meet with you to speak.
Once your visit is completed - you may check-out at the window OR at the front desk / lobby area. Only TWO clients will be allowed in the lobby at a time! At this time we will require face masks or shields be worn when in the clinic for our staff's safety. This is a necessity - you MUST WEAR A FACE MASK OR FACE SHIELD TO ENTER THE BUILDING. If you choose not to wear a mask or face shield - we ask you to do all business at the window area if possible.
We will be using a ticket numbering system for the line up if you arrive prior to opening or during the lunch hour from 1-2 PM when we are closed. If the ticket system is out, it will be at the check-in window. If you arrive when it is out, take a number and then wait in your vehicle. You are NOT allowed to leave after taking a number. Approximately 5 minutes prior to opening, use your number to find your place in the line.
If you leave the property, before checking in, your ticket is invalid and you must get a new number when you return. This system is to prevent our clients from having to stand in line for long periods in the cold winter weather. Anyone found cheating or otherwise not following the rules will be asked to leave Selah Vet.
Restrooms are open for use.
We are advising that people think about their visit - and limit travel. We are attempting to limit care to only that needed. If you come in for simple toe nail trims, vaccine boosters, etc - you will still have to wait your turn to be seen.
If you are ill, or have any signs of fever or respiratory illness, or are on at-home quarantine - please do not come to the clinic. If your pet has an emergency, and you don't have someone else to help - let us know you are sick before we meet you. Again - please be respectful of our staff and other clients - IF YOU ARE SICK, PLEASE LET US KNOW ...
We thank you for your patience and cooperation during these difficult times. Prayers to all of our clients and patients to stay safe - Sincerely, The Selah Veterinary Staff
WELLNESS EXAMS & EMERGENT CARE
Regular exams help our veterinarians to monitor changes in your pet's health and gives us the opportunity to identify and manage any possible problems early on. We are equipped to handle most of your emergent needs.
Microchips are one of the easiest safety measures you can have done in case your pet happens to get lost or stolen. Microchips may also act as a very strong proof of ownership in such cases.
Vaccines are crucial to ensuring your pet - and you - are protected. We make vaccine decisions based on the latest science and your pet's risk profile to ensure adequate vaccination - but not too much.
From spays and neuters, to more complex abdominal or orthopedic procedures, our compassionate staff and skilled veterinarians work hard to ensure each pet gets the best of care possible - while being monitored with top-of-the-line anesthesia equipment.
Keeping your pet's teeth clean is not just about 'fresh breath'. It is key to preventing serious illness as well - such as periodontitis, bacterial infection, mouth pain, and heart disease.
Our in-house laboratory is equipped with the latest technology to give our veterinarians the answers to your pet's health concerns quickly. This includes blood screenings, complete blood counts, urinalysis, internal parasite screens, and more....
RADIOLOGY / ULTRASOUND
When your pet is sick or injured, we are equipped with top-of-the-line digital radiographs (x-rays) and ultrasound for quick images and quality care. Especially important in those instances where time is important in making quick medical decisions.
Selah Veterinary Hospital will guide you through the tough end-of-life decisions so your pet can be pain free, and pass with comfort and dignity. Whether through hospice care or humane euthanasia. We also offer remembrance services such as clay paw prints, and cremation.
