The following protocol has been developed to meet the needs of our patients while acknowledging the requests of the government to limit exposure. Protocols and operating hours have the potential to change with short notice as warranted.

In order to provide a safe environment for owners, and GrandView Animal Care Center staff members, we ask that you please avoid visiting our hospital if you are currently experiencing flu-like symptoms, including a fever and a cough, or if you or someone you have been in contact with has traveled to an affected area within the last 14 days.

We will be accepting patients that require medical attention defined as pets presenting with medical concerns, time sensitive vaccines and injections. Routine Annual Exams, nail trims, and non-essential blood work appointments will be postponed.  Clients that participate in our Vaccines for Life program will not be penalized during this time.

Our updated hours will be posted on our social media sites as well as our website.

Clients with confirmed appointments will be asked to please remain in your vehicle and call to let us know you have arrived. Please remain in your vehicle with your animal.  A staff member will discuss your needs by phone when you arrive. At the end of the phone conversation, a staff member will come to the parking lot to bring your pet into the building for evaluation. Dogs are required to be on leash, and cats MUST be presented in a carrier. We will not accept cats not protected with a carrier. After the medical team evaluates your animal, you will receive a phone call to discuss recommendations and a plan moving forward. Verbal consent for treatment and details surrounding financial estimates will be authorized via this phone call.

Once the care of your animal is complete, the discharge process will be discussed.

We will be able to process credit card payments at your vehicle, and this would be our preferred method of payment. Cash transactions with exact change or checks will help limit transaction times.

Medication pickups will be available during our posted hours.

 

SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19)
What is SARS-CoV-2?
SARS-CoV-2 is a new type of coronavirus that has not previously been identified. This virus is not the samecoronavirus that can cause the common cold inhumans, nor is it the same as canine coronavirus (CCoV).
Coronaviruses are a family of viruses characterized by crown-like spikes on their surface as seen under themicroscope. There are many viruses in this family that cause various types of diseases, such as diarrhea and

upper respiratory infections.

Can my pet be affected by COVID-19?

At this time, there is no evidence that any animal or pet can infect humans with the new coronavirus. Additionally, no animals to date have been reported to be sick with COVID-19.
“At this time, there is no evidence that any animal or pet can infect humans with the new
coronavirus.” There was a single case of a dog testing positive for the new coronavirus; however, this dog has remained healthy and the positive result may be due to environmental contamination from the infected owner. In other words, the virus may have been present in the dog’s nose the same way the virus was likely present on other surfaces in the household. It is important to note that the test used is very sensitive and can detect very small fragments of the virus; it does not indicate that the virus was intact or contagious. No other cases of pets testing positive have been reported at this time.
Further blood testing is being performed to evaluate if this dog is truly infected. If this blood test is positive, this would be a case of human to animal transmission of the new coronavirus; however, this would not be evidence that an animal can infect others.
Because this is a new virus and information is still being collected, as a precaution, restrict contact with your pets if you are diagnosed with COVID-19. If this is not possible, practice good hygiene and wash your hands before and after touchingyour pet, avoid close contact, and wear a facemask.

How is it transmitted?

Current evidence suggests that person-to-person spread is the main source of infection. This occurs through respirator droplets created when an infected person sneezes or coughs. There is also a possibility of spread via objects or surfaces that have been exposed to the virus; however, this is not suspected as a main source of infection.

Should I monitor my pet for any signs?

Because there have not been any documented cases of pets becoming sick with COVID-19, there are no specific recommendations. However, there is still much to learn about this new virus, and vigilance is key. If your pet exhibits signs of illness (coughing, sneezing, fever, abnormally low energy, etc.), particularly if your pet has been exposed to someone known to be infected with COVID-19, call your veterinarian for guidance.

Should my pet wear a face mask as a precaution?

No. First, it is unlikely that this will not protect your pet from any potential disease transmission. Second, it can cause breathing difficulties, especially in certain breeds of cats and dogs. Third, masks must be saved for use in people with active signs of infection and medical professionals.

Is there a vaccine?

Currently, a vaccine for this new SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus is not available. There is a vaccine for the canine coronavirus (CCoV), however, this vaccine does not work to protect you or your pet from COVID-19.

Basic Obedience Classes:

Level 1 Obedience Class is a 7 week course for puppies and dogs of all ages and sizes.

If you haven’t taken this class, it is a great class for new puppies and new puppy owners as well as an excellent refresher course.  Basic Obedience is the core for all other classes including agility and Canine Good Citizen as well as Therapy Dog International.

  • Learn basic obedience commands and ways to use them in practical situations, along with different techniques to discourage undesirable behaviors.
  • Students are given time at the end of each session to play and socialize.  Positive socialization is imperative to your pet’s development.
  • Puppies should be at least 12 weeks of age to attend.  All dogs need proof of current rabies vaccine.

Level 2 Intermediate Obedience Class is a 6 week course.

This is a 6 week course designed to put all your dog’s basic skills to work in practical situations, and we will often meet in different locations to do so.  This is also a prep course for your dog to take the Canine Good Citizen or Therapy Dog International test.  Your dog NEEDS TO KNOW how to sit, stay and come when called to take this course.

Call us today for details! (716) 608-6383   Space is LIMITED.  You do not have to be a client of GrandView Animal Care Center to attend!

Testimonials:

Morgan Benaquist – “I can’t say enough about Dr Lisa and her staff. After having a negative experience at another vet office, I stumbled upon Grandview and made an appointment, and now I would never dream of going anywhere else in the future. My furbaby was very sick, but Dr Lisa and her team were always more than accommodating, going above and beyond in every way. I was a frequent visitor due to his condition, and everyone developed such a great bond with him, always excited to see him when I brought him in again. On days I didn’t have an appointment, they were calling to check on him and see if there was anything we needed. Just an amazing personal connection/care that you scarcely find anymore. And although my situation ended in having to say goodbye to my furbaby, I can’t imagine going through this anywhere else. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for all that you do. Our community is so much better for it.

Elizabeth Poole — “Excellent staff, beautiful clean facilities. They made my princess feel comfortable and safe. It was not easy picking a new vet after I moved, I am so glad I chose this one!”

Debbie Helmbrecht Cordone — “Such a nice atmosphere and great staff! Everyone is so friendly and caring. It’s great to have you in such a convenient location.”

Lisa Regan-Grosso — “Wonderful group of people! Animal lovers at their best!”
