WE RE-OPEN ON MONDAY, APRIL 6th!
Dr. Sandler and her staff remain healthy and are ready to see you and your pets for non-surgical and non-emergency visits. We're continuing curbside service; call us when you arrive and we'll meet you at your vehicle. For the time being we would like you to call ahead and make an appointment; walk-ups/drive-ups would create a traffic problem and increase wait time outside the clinic. We'll be open during normal business hours (Mon-Fri 7:30am-5:30pm, Sat 8:00am-12:30pm). Give us a call at (913) 648-1662. In the meantime please continue to follow the CDC's COVID-19 safety guidelines and we'll get through this!Dr. Jill Sandler and the entire Heartland Animal Clinic staff
Additionally, here's a few things to help, courtesy of the Centers for Disease Control:
· Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing, or having been in a public place.
· If soap and water are not available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
· To the extent possible, avoid touching high-touch surfaces in public places – elevator buttons, door handles, handrails, handshaking with people, etc. Use a tissue or your sleeve to cover your hand or finger if you must touch something.
· Wash your hands after touching surfaces in public places.
· Avoid touching your face, nose, eyes, etc.
· Clean and disinfect your home to remove germs: practice routine cleaning of frequently touched surfaces (for example: tables, doorknobs, light switches, handles, desks, toilets, faucets, sinks & cell phones)
· Avoid crowds, especially in poorly ventilated spaces. Your risk of exposure to respiratory viruses like COVID-19 may increase in crowded, closed-in settings with little air circulation if there are people in the crowd who are sick.
While there has been one single confirmed case of human-to-animal COVID-19 transmission (in Hong Kong), there is no evidence that animals can transmit it to humans.
