EFFECTIVE: July 5, 2021
To Our Valued Clients,
Battlefield Animal Clinic is excited to welcome you back into our clinic! We will be lifting our modified procedure for appointment check in/out and product or prescription pick-ups. We continue to strive to balance our role in protecting the community with social distancing and being available for you and your pet’s medical needs. Please read the outline below for our “Reopening plan.”
**Please do not come to the clinic if you have a fever and/or feel ill and reschedule your pet’s appointment for a later date.
**In the event of an emergency call us to provide authorization for another individual to bring your pet in and make medical decisions on your behalf**
What will stay the same?
For ALL surgery, grooming, drop-off exams, or technician appointments, we will continue to utilize the curbside check-in procedures. Please call the clinic at 703-361-0271 when you arrive to check-in your pet.
We will continue to limit the number to one (1) person only for clients electing to enter the building for their pet’s appointments (does not apply for technician appointments; those are curbside).
If you have young kids, we ask that you call the clinic to check-in over the phone and continue to wait in your vehicle for all services.
Please make sure ALL PETS are either in a carrier or have the leash fastened securely before exiting the vehicle.
For checking out and picking up your pet from their drop off appointment, please call our reception team at 703-361-0271. The Veterinarian or the Veterinary Assistant will call you to discuss any instructions if needed.
What will stay the same?
Masks are required for all those not fully vaccinated against the coronavirus and children between the ages of 2-12.
You may now check in for appointments, prescription pickups, or sample drop offs in person in the lobby, OR you can call 703-361-0271 for curbside service.
We will have limited space in the lobby in keeping with the recommended social distancing recommendations from the CDC. If there is not enough room in the lobby you will be asked to wait in your car after you and your pet check-in. A member of our staff will call you when they are ready for you and your pet.
For all routine and urgent care appointments, when your appointment is complete you will be released to the lobby to resume normal check out procedures. If you prefer to check-out in the exam room for privacy reasons, please communicate with either the Veterinary Assistant or the Veterinarian.
We are very excited to welcome you back and see your faces again! We thank you for your continued trust and support.
