COVID-19 Appointment Policy
Conley and Koontz Equine Hospital wants to not only provide our clients with the best possible service during this outbreak of COVID-19, but to also avoid exposure as much as possible so we can stay open to serve you and your horses in your time of need. To help prevent the spread of this disease we will be implemting curbside service for all in hospital appointments and some changes to ambulatory appointments as well. This will enable us to provide care for your horses while limiting exposure to you, your family, and our staff.
Please schedule appointments as you always have done. Once you arrive at the drop off area of our facility (behinf the hospital) please call and let us know you are here. A nurse will meet you and add our lead rope to your horse while you take yours with you. She then will take your horse from you and lead the horse inside to be looked at. A doctor will call you to get a medical history and examine your horse. After the examination the doctor will call you to determine a medical plan. Once everything is done a nurse will bring back your animal for you to load and payment will be taken over the phone.
Before arriving at your farm we are asking that horses to be seen be put in stalls and labeled. This way we can work on your horses without you needing to risk yourself to possible exposure. The doctor will call you to get a medical history if needed and then will call you with a medical plan for after examination. Payment can then be taken over the phone.
In situations where our veterinarians are not accompanied by an assistant or technician, we ask that a single individual be available to help with your horse. If you or anyone in your householdhas any evidence of respiratory disease or has been exposed to anyone with respiratory illness, that this is relayed to the vet at the time of initial phone contact.
While we understand that this is not the ideal way we wish to practice, it is the safest for all concerned.
We request any clients who are exhibiting symptoms such as fever, cough, shortness of breath or breathing difficulties, please either reschedule your appoinment or arrange to have a healthy perosn transport your horse to the hospital.
We are continuing to follow the reccomendations of CDC, WHO and the AVMA regarding COVID-19 and will update our clients if things should change.
