At Belle Rive Pet Hospital we continue to be open for necessary pet health needs during the COVID-19 outbreak. If it becomes necessary to close, we will notify our clients via our website, Facebook and email. Please follow the recommendations and updates from Alberta Health Services.
Our hours are temporarily reduced to 9:00 am to 5:00 pm Monday to Friday. We will be closed all Saturdays until further notice. This will allow for full staffing at all times to deal with the increased disinfecting requirements.
We are taking steps to keep our clients and staff healthy. This includes frequent handwashing and disinfecting of high touch areas, use of exam gloves, and delayed booking of non-essential visits.
Our door will be locked during operational hours. Clients will not be allowed in the clinic to ensure appropriate physical distancing for the safety of clients and staff. When you arrive at the clinic, please phone us from your vehicle. If you have an appointment, we will get the history from you and collect your pet at your vehicle to be taken in for examination. Once the examination is complete the veterinarian will phone to discuss diagnostic and treatment plans.
Please call ahead if you require food or prescriptions. These items can be paid for with an email transfer and delivered curbside so you do not have to leave your vehicle.
At this time, we are not taking new bookings for elective procedures (spays and neuters etc) in order to conserve supplies for those requiring necessary surgical and medical care. We will create a list of clients requesting an elective procedure to be called when supplies become available again. At this time we have no indication of when that will be.
In order to reduce transmission risks and handling of medications, we will no longer be splitting tablets. We recommend using a pill splitter or small side cutters for splitting tablets if your pet requires less than a whole tablet.
If someone in your household is sick, in isolation or has traveled outside of Canada in the last 14 days, do not come to the clinic for ANY reason!
Instead, have a healthy friend or family member from outside your home pick up prescriptions if needed.
Non prescription items, such as pet food, can be ordered from our online store at https://bellerive.clientvantage.ca/ and delivered to your door within a day or two. Registration is required before purchases can be made.
If your pet has an emergency, please notify us (or an emergency clinic if after hours) of the situation and have a non-quarantined friend or family member deliver your pet the veterinary clinic. Please keep in mind that the surface of your pet will be considered a possible source of infection and it is of the utmost importance that the people handling your pet are made aware of this so precautions can be taken to minimize the risks to the person attending with the pet and the veterinary staff caring for the pet.
