Are you a Veterinarian looking for a great place to live and work?
Our clients are the best and our team is like family. At the base of Massanutten mountain, our little community has lots to offer (hiking, biking, golf, snow sports...all in a semi-rural setting), and tucked between Harrisonburg and Charlottesville there's plenty life all around. If you're looking for a small privately owned practice that allows you room to grow as a veterinarian while encouraging a good work-life balance, we'd love to talk to you. You can get more information or apply online at the AVMA Career Center
UPDATE POLICIES & PROCEDURES - COVID-19
UPDATED 6/1/2021: Open for ALL CARE, with MODIFIED Curbside service.
In light of the recent relaxation of COVID restrictions in Virginia and lower positivity rate, we are moving to a modified curbside service which will start to allow 1 person to accompany their pet to their visit with the doctor, while continuing to provide curbside service for non-doctor appointments and for anyone who prefers full curbside service. Our goal is to begin to allow for more client participation in their pet's care while continuing to minimize risks as best we can for clients and staff who have chosen not to be vaccinated. We will continually evaluate both local positivity rate and client needs to assess when we can further relax (or potentially tighten) these measures.
Because our space is limited, making social distancing difficult, we will be controlling entry into the clinic so that we can minimize exposure and prevent congregation in common spaces such as the front desk area. We will continue to REQUIRE MASKS for entry into the building regardless of vaccination status, and still ask that you call when you get into the parking lot to let us know you are here. Please bare with us as we begin this transition, and know that there will likely be adjustments and modifications along the way.
What does this mean for Clients & Patients?
We are still not accepting New Clients at this time.
Unfortunately, at this time due to staffing issues, we are still not be able to accept new clients. We will reconsider this as soon as we can reach acceptable staffing level. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
Please do not come to the clinic if you have been exposed to COVID-19, have a fever or are exhibiting signs of illness
No one will be allowed to enter the building with any signs of illness or known exposure to COVID-19. It is important to stay home if you are exhibiting signs of illness or have a fever. Even if you do not have the COVID-19 virus, you may be more susceptible to it and should avoid public places like our clinic for your own safety. You are welcome to send your pets in with a trusted neighbor, friend or family member. We will contact you by phone for details and payment.
MODIFIED "curbside" visits:
Drop-off appointments will be encouraged
In order to care for as many animals as possible while reducing traffic, we will be encouraging people to drop off their pets for care. These exams will be done as time permits between scheduled appointments. Doctors will then call owners with their findings and treatment plan once the exam is complete. Drop-offs will be handled curbside as described above with appointments.
Clients are encouraged to fill multiple months of prescription meds when possible.
Decreasing the number of visits by people to the clinic over time is an important way that we can limit community spread. We will be encouraging people to pick up 2-3 months worth of any medication they give their pets on a regular basis whenever possible (Supply may sometimes limit this, but we are striving to keep everything we need on hand.) Prescription pickup will be handled curbside (as above).
What does this mean for our Staff?
Staff will be wearing masks when interacting with clients & ask that you do the same.
Masks will be required regardless of vaccination status. We do not feel that we can or should ask for verification of vaccine status. We have chosen instead to require the same for everyone. If someone can not wear a mask or prefers not to, they are welcome to take advantage of our curbside service instead.
COVID-19 Vaccination, Illness and our Staff
While many members of our staff have taken advantage of the opportunity to be vaccinated, not all have chosen to do such. We have not and will not require vaccination of any employee. This is one of the main reasons it is important for us to continue to require masks and be vigilant for signs of disease. We will follow all CDC guidelines on determining employee quarantine, testing and return to work in order to protect ourselves and the community.
Increased hand washing & cleaning during the day.
This applies to everyone, including our receptionists. Staff will continue to wash hands before and after every appointment. We have always worked hard to keep things very clean in our clinic with regular surface cleaning between appointments and daily mopping. We will be increasing in-clinic mopping and extra surface cleaning to at least twice daily, and will incorporate surfaces such as doorknobs, chairs, etc. Our cleaning solutions (Rocal & Odoban) are effective against the COVID-19 virus, so mopping the floor to remove any aerosolized droplets that have fallen to the floor and wiping surfaces like tables, counters and doorknobs at least twice daily will further decrease potential exposure and spread.
