We at the Cherry Ridge Veterinary Clinic continue to closely monitor the Coronavirus and its impact across the globe with a focus on the health and safety of our employees, customers and patients. In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, we continue to remain OPEN to ensure the health of our beloved pets. Our schedule will be limited to ONLY URGENT CARE (sick/injured) cases during this unprecedented time while we work with limited staff. PLEASE BE PATIENT WITH OUR PHONE LINES. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us. We will not be performing elective surgeries at this time. We will be rescheduling routine appointments to ensure sick patients take priority. Food and medications can still be ordered and picked up. We just ask that you call from your car when you arrive and a staff member will assist you. All urgent care appointments will also be asked to call from the car/parking lot. We are also limiting 1 family member per pet in the office. This is an attempt to minimize exposure to clients, staff and the general public. We ask if you are ill please do not come in the building. We will gladly come to the car and get your pet. Please also notify our staff if you have traveled outside of Northeast Pennsylvania within the last 30 days. Sanitizing and social distancing will be one of our top priorities as well as the health of our staff and clients. We have increased the frequency of cleaning and disinfecting of all high touch surfaces throughout our facility. We remain deeply committed to serving our clients and patients throughout this crisis. We will continue to provide you with updates as and if the situation changes. Should you have any immediate questions please contact our office via phone or Facebook. Effective now until April 30,2020
