Clients who have recently traveled through a high-risk country, been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, personally tested positive for COVID-19, or are having respiratory symptoms should NOT come into Kittredge AC unless their pet is having a medical emergency. If they must come in, please call ahead and let us know. We have new safety protocols in place to minimize the risk to our staff and clients while we treat your pet.
Medication and prescription food can be shipped to clients at no extra charge.
We are following CDC recommendations to ensure that our clinic stays safe and clean for everyone here. If we do run into staffing shortages due to COVID-19, we may need to reduce our hours to compensate, or potentially only see patients for emergency and critical cases. If any changes to hours or availability occur, we will promptly notify you.
Statement from the Animal Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA):
Friday, February 28, brought news that a dog in Hong Kong was quarantined after samples obtained from its nasal cavity and mouth tested “weak positive” for the virus that causes COVID-19. The dog’s owner has tested positive for the virus (SARS-CoV-2, formerly called 2019-nCoV) and has COVID-19.
The implications of a "weak positive" test result are unclear, and it’s unknown if the presence of the virus is due to infection, environmental contamination, cross-reactivity, or even potential issues with the test itself. Hong Kong officials said the dog showed no clinical signs of illness, has been quarantined and is being cared for, and will continue to be monitored and tested to determine its status.
According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), no animals in the United States have been identified with the virus, and there is no evidence that dogs or other pets can contract or spread COVID-19
