AVMA and AAHA Guidelines.
Updated: Mar 18, 2020
#coralwayanimalclinic proudly follows the American Veterinary Medical Association and the American Animal Hospital Association guidelines and Membership.
COVID-19 update emailed to AVMA members: An important question that has been asked is whether veterinary medicine is considered an “essential business”. AVMA is advocating for all veterinary hospitals and ambulatory practices to be considered essential businesses in any situations in which non-essential businesses are asked to close for COVID-19 risk mitigation. Veterinarians and our teams provide important animal and public health surveillance, deliver essential medical care for ill animals, and ensure that only healthy animals enter the food supply. Veterinary practices can and should defer elective procedures to preserve medical supplies when circumstances call for that. However, veterinarians must also be able to continue to provide medically necessary care for our animal patients, especially during this time when Americans are spending increased time at home with their pets and ensuring the integrity of our food supply is critical. In doing so, and as needed, veterinarians can adapt our approach to ensure an appropriate level of biosecurity that safeguards the health of our animal patients and their owners. #health #biosecurity #wellness #medicalcare #safeguards #healthcare #veterinarians #covid19response #coralwayanimalclinic
