ATTENTION CLIENTS:
COVID-19 Updates & Protocols


Reopening Plan: Thank You For Your Patience


With restrictions being lifted and an increasing number of businesses reopening, we wanted to keep you, our valued client, updated on
Martin Veterinary Hospital’s reopening plan. Our top priority remains safeguarding the health and safety of our clients and staff, all the while continuing to provide outstanding patient care.

As a healthcare provider, factors such as waiting and exam room size, air flow and the ability to maintain safe distancing during your pet’s examination are all factors that play into our reopening plan. Also, given the newness of the COVID-19 vaccine, variants of concern and the potential for a fourth wave, our clients and staff are expressing vastly different comfort levels with respect to physical distancing. 

While a reopening plan is in the works, we continue to take a cautious approach.  When we do reopen, here are some of the things you can expect:

  • The number of concurrent client visits will be restricted to respect physical distancing.
  • One client will be allowed per patient.
  • The wearing of surgical masks will be mandatory. Masks will be provided by the clinic.
  • COVID-19 screening will be in place for all visitors.
  • Hand sanitizing stations will be readily available throughout the clinic.
  • Curbside service food and medication pickup will remain available. 
  • Curbside drop off will remain in place and clients will continue to have the option to virtually participate in appointments via a clinic-supplied tablet.

We thank you for your continued encouragement and support. As with you, our team looks forward to the day when they can safely welcome you back into Martin Veterinary Hospital.

The health and safety of our patients, clients, and staff is our top priority. That’s why we’re doing our part to slow the spread of coronavirus during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Ontario’s lock down order as of January 14th is issuing a stay-at-home order, only allowing individuals to leave their house for essential services. Veterinary appointments are considered essential. Any appointments you have currently booked will not be affected.

Martin Veterinary Hospital P.C. will continue to provide exceptional service.

The following are our operating procedures during the COVID-19 pandemic effective immediately and ongoing through the spring. We are doing our best to continue serving you and your pets!
