Rabies is one of the oldest and most feared viral infections of all time. Despite having a vaccine available, every year, there are 55,000 human deaths worldwide. Of the 25 human deaths from rabies in Canada, the most recent was in 2012, and all happened after exposure to bats. In Canada, there were 239 cases of animal rabies in 2017 and 183 in 2018.
Champlain Animal Hospital is committed to doing everything possible to combat the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak. As part of this commitment, we will be instituting the following precautionary protocols to minimize the risk of COVID-19 transmission.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
For the safety of yourself, our staff, and the community we are limiting the number of clients inside our building. We have initiated a semi-open-door policy to allow one person inside the hospital while your pet is here for a scheduled exam with the veterinarian.
Please call 705-742-4243 when you arrive for your appointment for further instructions from one of our team members. At this time, technician appointments will continue to be performed while you remain in your car.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
3. ONLINE CONSULTATIONS ARE AVAILABLE
If you wish to connect with a veterinarian via message, phone or video, visit our website and follow the "Online Consultation" link.
