This is an important Coronavirus update on how the latest news will affect Gawler Animal Hospital (GAH).
** UPDATED 18TH NOVEMBER **
YES, we are OPEN as we are an essential service!
We will remain open during these strict restrictions in order to continue to provide health care for your family’s pets. Our opening hours will be the same as usual.
We still have normal supplies of food and medicines so there is no need to panic. Unfortunately our hydrobath has to be closed as it is not an essential service.
We are currently in Stage 2 of our GAH Covid-19 Management Plan.
For you as clients this will mean contactless consults again. Due to the risk of local transmission the hospital will be operating as a ‘STAFF and ANIMAL ONLY’ hospital as we endeavour to provide the best possible care for your pets while keeping our terrific staff and you, our wonderful clients as safe as possible.
This will require clients to call us from the carpark when you arrive and ensure you are wearing a mask (as per the government’s requirement). A nurse will then call you back and ask details of today’s visit and then will instruct you to bring your pet to the front door where the nurse will meet you and take your pet in to see the vet. The vet will then be calling owners to discuss results of the examination and treatment recommendations.
Discharge appointments for animals that have been in hospital will be managed in a similar way. Please call us on arrival and we will then be able to give you further instructions.
Food and medications can still be collected from the hospital and will also be brought to the door for you. Payments can be made over the phone or by contactless Eftpos.
We will do our best during this time to be able to continue to take the very best of care of you and your pets; please take care, and give your pets a pat and a cuddle from us!
The team at Gawler Animal Hospital
