Lockerby Animal Hospital Covid 19 update

By Uncategorized No Comments

Hello everyone,

We hope you had a great Family Day weekend 😊   As you are aware, the Government of Ontario has announced that February 16, 2021, the area within Public Health Sudbury & Districts boundaries will be returning to the Orange Zone.   At this time, Lockerby Animal Hospital will continue with curbside medicine for your appointments, food and medication pickups.  Our exam rooms are small and with the presence of the Covid 19 variant in Northern Ontario, our team just does not feel comfortable opening up for in person visits yet.  It gets full pretty fast with a veterinarian, RVT, client, patients and equipment in the room!  We would like to thank you for your understanding and support and promise we’ll do our very best to make your visit the most efficient it can be. 

Here are some things that really help us out:

  • Make sure your contact info, especially your email and phone number, are up to date in our files. If the phone number on file will not be the best one to contact you during your appointment, please let us know. 
  • Please fill out the questionnaire attached to your appointment reminder prior to your appointment.
  • Call when you have arrived at the hospital and let us know what parking spot you are in. The number can be found on the orange sign in your spot.
  • Check our social media pages on Facebook and Instagram and our website frequently for updates.

We can’t tell you enough how much your support has meant to us.  Everyone has been very kind and encouraging throughout the pandemic and we are honoured to have you as our clients. 

Your Lockerby Animal Hospital team

Thank you so much to those of you who have already ordered!  You rock!  
If it’s on your list but you haven’t quite gotten to it yet, we’d be happy to take your order ASAP!  

***Please make sure you have enough food and medications for your pet 
until at least after the first week of January.*** 
 

We’re experiencing long delays in shipping which has resulted in lower quantities of our regular stock.  Sometimes, refrigerated items have had to be sent back and reordered.  We also want to remind you that we’ll be closed between Christmas and New Year’s and don’t expect shipping to return to normal until the first few weeks of January as every veterinary hospital will be ordering supplies at the same time. 

Our webstore is available 24/7 for orders www.myvetstore.ca/lockerbyah
Please remember that all shipping is delayed (even for the webstore) due to high volumes, 
especially with the double whammy of holidays and Covid-19.

Stay home. Stay safe. Free delivery over $50 with our webstore.

Lockerby Animal Hospital Covid-19 Update

By Uncategorized No Comments
Effective Friday, July 17, 2020, businesses, organizations, and public spaces were permitted to proceed to stage 3 and reopen in the Sudbury and Manitoulin districts. Lockerby Animal Hospital is now allowing one person per appointment in the exam room with some exceptions. You will be required to wear a mask and complete a Covid 19 screening questionnaire.
If this is not possible, we are happy to bring your pet into the exam room and call you in your car to conduct the appointment.
When you arrive at the hospital, please call the number on the orange sign in the parking lot to let us know you are here and which parking spot you are in. When the team is ready for your appointment, they will come to your vehicle and escort you into the building. You will use the hand sanitizer provided and proceed to the room where you will be asked to remain in a marked off area to provide social distancing. Our exam rooms are small so we are doing our very best to maintain distance and ask that our clients help us out. Payment for services will be done in the exam room, via telephone or in the parking lot. All food and medications will be brought out to your vehicle with payment via telephone. We are really excited to see everyone in the hospital again! Let’s work together to keep everyone safe!
