COVID-19 UPDATE

WE WILL BE CLOSED NOVEMBER 23 THROUGH NOVEMBER 27 DUE TO POSITIVE COVID CASES. WE WILL RE-OPEN NOVEMBER 30. WE SINCERELY APOLOGIZE FOR ANY CONVENIENCE AS WE TRY TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE.  WE WILL BE CHECKING MESSAGES ON MONDAY AND TUESDAY TO ACCOMODATE REFILLS IF NEEDED. YOU CAN ALSO UTILIZE OUR WEBSITE PORTAL AND CONTACT US VIA EMAIL. THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING.


WE REMAIN OPEN TO SEE PATIENTS DURING THE STAY AT HOME ORDER FOR URGENT CASES. PLEASE CALL WITH ANY QUESTIONS. 

In efforts to comply with the most recent recommendations, we will be changing how we see appointments.  We will remain open and see patients, but will keep in mind our highest priority being the health and well being of all involved, including staff members, clients, and pets.  We ask that you bear with us during these times as we try to accommodate everyone and their needs as best we can.  Our goal is to minimize close contact as much as possible to keep everyone safe.  We will employ more rigorous disinfection protocols between clients disinfecting things like door handles and countertops.  We ask the following: 

Please wait in your vehicle and call us when you have arrived. From there, we will get more information about your pet's visit. We will then have you drop your pet off at the front door.  We are no longer letting anyone inside the building aside from our staff.

If you are feeling ill, please send someone else with your pet, or we may be able to do a consult over phone to address your concerns with your pet if we have performed an exam recently. Please call with any questions.

We will also be utilizing more "drop off" exams where you can drop your pet off at the office for a couple of hours. 

If you need refills, please call a head so we can have it ready, and we will take payment over the phone to minimize time in the reception area.  We also encourage use of our online store if you choose.  Monumentvetclinic.vetsfirstchoice.com 

Thank you for your understanding during this time. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call our office. 719-481-3509

Currently there is no evidence that pets can become sick. Infectious disease experts, as well as the CDC, OIE, and WHO indicate there is no evidence to suggest that pet dogs or cats can be a source of infection or spread disease.

As always, we appreciate your business and are doing our part to care for everyone and all involved.
