However, if you or a member of your household have COVID-19, it is recommended that the infected person limit or cease contact with pets to ensure the safety of the pets and others living in the residence.

Day By Day Pet Caregiver Support

While we are all physically distanced from each other as a community, more than ever we have a collective need to "remain together" during our grief. It's easy to forget how much we rely on our daily interactions with family, friends, and colleagues to help us cope-- thus, the absence of these people naturally puts us in a deep state of gratitude for those relationships and interactions that are still able to provide empathy & understanding. You are not alone, Day By Day is here for you.

Update on our status during the COVID-19 pandemic!

Hi again, everyone! Jeremy and I wanted to give you an update on our status for seeing appointments at this time. Please keep in mind that this is a fluid situation and our abilities to serve the community may change on a daily basis. We will do our best to keep you all up to date!

1. At this time, we are focusing our efforts on supporting our existing clients. If you are a new client seeking services, please still reach out, but please know it may be several weeks before you can be seen!

2. For new clients reaching out regarding in-home euthanasia, please note that these services are on hold until further notice. If you need help regarding this, please reach out to: Lap of Love NOVA at: 703-870-5489. If you have questions regarding this service for in the future, please still reach out and we will help as best as we can.

3. For our existing clients, we will still do our best to honor your needs should in-home euthanasia become necessary for your pet. Please do reach out if this is the case and we will formulate a plan.

4. Because we are down to just 2 staff members, you may experience longer wait times for responses to voicemails, texts, and e-mails. We will do our best to respond to you but it may take 1-3 business days to get a response. Our operating hours for seeing appointments will vary but, generally, communications will be monitored between 10-6 Tuesday-Thursday. Please be patient with us!

5. We understand that cancellations may be necessary and we will do our best to be flexible if you have to change or cancel an appointment unexpectedly. Please remember, however that there are many people in line behind you waiting for an appointment slot. Please try to let us know as soon as possible if you cannot make a scheduled appointment so that we can try to get the next patient in to be seen.

6. For herbs and medicine refills that require a recheck appointment, we are doing these via Zoom or FaceTime. Please let us know if you would like to schedule a consult and we will get you on the schedule!

7. For in person services at the center: We are working on a concierge/curbside basis to keep the inside of the center clean and safe for our staff. When you arrive, please stay in your car and give us a call or a text. We will come and collect your pet from you and do the treatment in the lobby. Due to our allergies, appointments will no longer be held outside. It is fine to walk your pet when you arrive but please honor the 6’ social distancing recommendation and try not to linger by the door.

8. For house call appointments: We request that all house calls be done outside or in an open garage if possible and safe to do so. We do not want to accidentally carry anything into your home that might cause your family to become ill. House calls may be getting limited moving forward depending on how much the case load for COVID-19 spikes in Loudoun County. Please honor the 6' social distancing recommendation so we can keep each other safe!!

9. For all appointments: We request that you tell us if any family members have been sick, on travel, or otherwise may have been exposed to COVID-19. If you are sick, please have a well family member transport your pet to the center for appointments.

10. For herb pick up: Please give us a rough idea of when you need to come by for your refills and then text us when you arrive. We will leave your herbs outside by the door for contact-free pick up. Also, due to overwhelm, please try to give us as much notice as possible for when you do need refills.

11. All billing will be done either by manual entry of the credit card at the end of your appointment or through e-mailed invoices to you that can be paid with your credit card. To help with cash flow, please pay this invoice as promptly as you can. Please, no cash or checks at this time.

Again, thank you so much for being flexible with us. We are trying our best to keep up with patient need. We care about your families and your pets very deeply and are honored to be part of your pet’s care team.

Love,
Krisi and Jeremy

SARS-CoV-2 in animals, including pets

Some additional information on SARS-CoV-2 and keeping our pets safe!

“ Out of an abundance of caution and until more is known about this virus, if you are ill with COVID-19 you should restrict contact with pets and other animals, just as you would restrict your contact with other people. When possible, have another member of your household or business take care of feeding and otherwise caring for any animals, including pets. If you have a service animal or you must care for your animals, including pets, wear a cloth facemask; don’t pet, don’t share food, kiss, or hug them; and wash your hands before and after any contact with your pet or service animal. You should not share dishes, drinking glasses, cups, eating utensils, towels, or bedding with other people or pets in your home.

Additional guidance on managing pets in homes where people are sick with COVID-19 is available from the CDC. ”

SARS-CoV-2 in ferrets, cats and dogs: A new experimental study | Worms & Germs Blog

Sage advice from our colleagues in Reston.

From the good folks at Just Cats Clinic:

There has been some new information released that indicates that cats can potentially contract COVID-19 and shed ineffective virus. Since this information is now in the news, we wanted to reach out and inform you about our thoughts on this subject.
It is important to realize that experimental studies often do not mimic the conditions that occur in “real life”, but there is still reason for caution. At this point, the most important measure we can all take is to quarantine ALL pets and humans from any human showing symptoms attributed to COVID-19. We do not want to cause alarm or fear, so please keep up normal interactions your kitties if you are healthy. We will continue to update you on any news we hear about cats and COVID-19.

Pet Remembrance Candlelight Ceremony

As you all know, our in person memorial service has been cancelled for this year due to the COVID-19 crisis. We hope to provide an abbreviated service online at some point over the summer and will report back with details as things settle down.

However, part of our service project also includes a food drive for the Loudoun Pet Pantry, part of the Interfaith Food Bank. After checking with Thrivent Financial for Lutherans (one of the sponsors for our yearly ceremony), we were able to use the $250 gift card they provided for the ceremony to send food, toys, and bathing supplies to Loudoun County Animal Services to help meet any needs they may have and also to disperse needed food through the Pet Pantry. Thank you, Thrivent for helping to make at least this part of our ceremony to happen this year!

I also encourage any of you who can to also make donations in honor of your pets to the Loudoun Pet Pantry, Loudoun County Animal Services, or to any one of the other awesome pet rescues in our area! Please post and share your contributions below so we can share the love of our pets and how their lives encourage us to do more to support other animals in need!

General information

Wholistic Paws Veterinary Services was created by Dr. Krisi Erwin and her husband, Jeremy, to provide the following services in the comfort and dignity of your own home: * Acupuncture * Pet Rehabilitation * Pet Hospice and Palliative Care * In-Home Euthanasia We can also offer additional services such as pain management, nutritional counseling, traditional Chinese herbal medicine, and help with treatments such as subcutaneous fluid administration. We truly believe that treatment plans must be tailored to meet the needs of the WHOLE pet and the WHOLE family – hence our name: Wholistic Paws. At Wholistic Paws, it is our goal and commitment to work with you and your veterinarian to provide additional care for your pets that your regular veterinarian may not be able to offer. Throughout the course of care, your veterinarian will be kept informed and involved in the treatment that your pet is receiving. Think of us as one more "tool" to help improve your pet's quality of life and to provide an enriching, loving, and special end of life experience for your pet when the time is appropriate. Wholistic Paws currently serves Loudoun County, Virginia and the surrounding areas. We can care for dogs, cats, and pocket pets (i.e. rabbits, ferrets, and guinea pigs). We are available by appointment only and we try to keep our appointment times flexible for your family's convenience.
