COVID-19 FAQ for Pet Owners - Veterinary Partner - VIN

Here is an informative article on Covid-19 with regards to pet owners.



[03/17/20]   To Our Much Valued Clients,

With the changes in our lives because of the coronavirus (Covid-19), we would like everyone to know that we are monitoring this epidemic with the greatest of caution with the CDC and various other agencies.

In response to the contagiousness of the virus, we are increasing the frequency of our viral disinfectant protocols especially in common areas that may be touched at a higher rate including door handles, handicap bars, doors, pens, clipboards etc. Carrying your own pens could also be helpful to reduce your risk of contracting the virus. We do have Purell available at the front desk. We will be hand shake free during this time. We always practice good hygiene with frequent handwashing even before the outbreak.

In addition, we are expanding the appointment times to one hour to better accommodate the recommended social distancing. We use separate check-in and check-out counters for limited contact.

If you would prefer to wait outside in your car or have us come to the car to get your pet, please call our office at 985-892-5252 once arriving in the parking lot.

For medication and food transactions, we can take payment over the phone and bring your medication to the car. All medications are dispensed wearing gloves, including the prescription bag. Food will be handled in the same manner. We also offer an online store on our website, www.abitavet.com, to help with access to products and food.

Our goal is to help protect your health while providing care for your pet. It is our oath to protect your health at all times and not just during an epidemic. We will keep you updated if there are any future changes that may affect our office hours.

Much regard and stay safe,

Dr. Edwards and the staff at Abita Veterinary Practice

This dog's pads burned off while on walk in summer heat

It’s hot out there! If it’s too hot for you, it’s too hot for them.

wwltv.com A Washington state veterinary hospital says the dog's injuries were so severe that it exposed raw muscle.

Found dog off of Koop drive on hwy 59! Our wonderful Client picked him up and brought him here for a microchip scan, and unfortunately he does not have one. He is intact and found with a pink camo collar. He is heading to St Tammy animal services now.

Miss Emma looking pretty as always💕

Sissy is boarding with us for a little while. Meanwhile she is loving it❤️

Interesting factoids

It’s that time of year again! Copperhead tips:

1) If an adult bites you, it’s possible you’d only get a dry bite. But go to the hospital as soon as possible anyway.
2) If you smell cucumber for no reason, you are within striking distance of a copperhead and you have already disturbed him.
3) Juveniles often have a yellow tip on the tail and they ALWAYS DUMP ALL THEIR VENOM .
4) Possums eat all snakes they find including copperheads, so leave the possums alone.
5) Other snakes such as rat snakes compete with copperheads for food and have been seen eating juvenile snakes just like King snakes eat copperheads, so dont kill other snakes. they are harmless, leave them be. learn to identify all snakes in your area.

OUR DRIVEWAY IS NOW OPEN! Whoop Whoop! Thank you guys for your patience while we were under construction.

Happy Halloween 🎃 June Bug is all ready for some trick or treating. Hope everyone has a safe and fun filled Halloween.

Tober patiently waiting to see Dr Emily💕

The little Budgeriar is doing very well. He still has a lingering problem with his left eyelid but it is closing much better. He is not yet interested in flying or leaving his cage but he is grooming, perching and sleeping like a normal bird. He is a trooper and I am hoping for a full recovery. When he initially presented, he was continuously rolling on his side with his head faced backwards (like when they sleep) and blinded by the severe eye issues. The infection behind his eyes has drained and he can now stand upright. The little fella has come a long way. I can't decide on what to name him so if anyone has a suggestion, that would be great!
