The government is continuing its gradual, stagged approach to reopeining Ontario, and is now starting to move certain communities from Stage 2 into Stage 3. At the Acton Verterinary Clinic, we continue to take a cautious approach to the re-opening of our clinic. As of today, the operations of the Acton Veterinary Clinic have not changed. Further updates will be provided in the weeks to come.
Our Vet Tech Victoria asks all of our clients the following questions:
“Have you or anyone that you have been in contact with had symptoms or tested positive for COVID? Have you or anyone that you are in contact with been in contact with a COVID positive person? Have you or anyone that you are in contact with been in contact with someone who has had contact with a COVID positive person?”
This may seem extreme (and repetitive), but we are working very hard to protect our clients and staff. Please consider COVID restrictions and exposures when making your appointment for your pet. We practice social distancing with PPE, and no clients can enter the building.
If you would like to hear Victoria rattle this off at lightning speed, just call the Acton Veterinary Clinic (519) 853-1450.
Due to unnecessary stockpiling, all veterinary clinics have been advised to implement a reasonable allocation policy for our clients' purchases to help flatten the curve of demand. Our suppliers are backlogged due to the higher volume of orders they have received. At this time, there will be delays receiving our orders. We ask all clients on special medication that is RUNNING LOW to please call us so we can try to accommodate as best as possible. We will be limiting orders to an allocation of 6 weeks to a 2 month supply or roughly two products/packages per patient depending on packaging/sizing availability.
For ALL NOT URGENT orders, please email us at email@example.com Please put ORDER in the subject line.
When your food/medication is ready for pick-up, the same rules as above apply. Payment over the phone, food/medication will be left on the white tabel outside the clinic. Once staff are back inside, then approach the table.
Thank you for your patience and understanding during this difficult time.
