Hutton Veterinary Clinic's Covid-19 Plan

Updated May 16th, 2020

    Hutton Veterinary Clinic remains committed to continued high quality veterinary care.  In the interest of keeping our furry friends, clients and team healthy, we are requesting that any clients who are sick, have flu like symptoms, or have been exposed to COVID-19, please refrain from coming to the clinic.  Instead have a family member or friend bring your pet or reschedule the appointment entirely.  We are also asking that only one adult owner/authorized person WEARING A MASK accompany the pet for the appointment.  (We are unable to provide masks at this time as PPE purchases are limited) Other family members or persons who come along will be asked to wait in their vehicles.  If your pet urgently needs to be seen and you are ill or have been exposed, please alert us ahead of time so we can work with you to meet your pet’s health care needs as best we can.    

    Hutton Veterinary Clinic team members will be minimizing direct human-to-human contact while following all CDC, KDHE, and AVMA recommended disinfecting/sanitizing hygienic practices.  To minimize contact in the clinic, we ask that when you arrive, you stay in your vehicle and call 316-681-0261.  Inform the team member of your name, pet’s name and what you are here for (an appointment vs. food/medication refill pickup). We will continue to be by appointment only on Saturdays.

· For appointments, we will let you know as soon as the exam room is ready and ask that you remain in the exam room for the duration of the appointment. 

· For in-clinic food/medication refills, we will bring the food/medication out to your car.  (Please try to call or submit a request online at least 24-48 hours in advance so we can be sure to have it available.  A team member will call you when your pet’s prescription is ready for pick up and will collect payment over the phone at that time.)  

    We will be limiting in clinic medication refills to a 60-day supply and food purchases to 2 bags/cases per pet in a household.  Heartworm medication and flea/tick medication are exempt from this.  Refills through our online pharmacy will not be restricted at this time. 

    We will be accepting payments in the form of cash, credit or debit card, CareCredit, or ScratchPay.  Payments are still due at time of service.  

    We will continue to monitor and adhere to the recommendations to keep our community as safe and healthy as we can.  Thank you all for your cooperation and understanding.  Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or concerns.  

 

Sincerely,  

 

Hutton Veterinary Clinic Team
