Dear Clients,

We are all aware of the concerns and rapidly changing situation with COVID-19. Due to the close public contact that our work requires, we have taken necessary measures to protect you and our team while providing care for your furry family members. As part of our due diligence, we have decided to consolidate our staff by maintaining all operations at Merritt Animal Hospital and Dresden Veterinary Clinic with a closed door policy and have our Sydenham River location open for medication/food pickup ONLY. 

The safety of our team members and clients is very important to us. As such, we will continue to follow all provincial health standards by having extensive cleaning protocols, wearing masks and gloves, and practicing physical distancing as much as possible within our teams.

Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
