We prioritize the health and safety of our patients and their families. We understand that being in contact with a large number of people in their homes carries certain risks, which is why we take extensive precautions to ensure everyone's well-being.  One of the key measures we implement is the use of masks. Our staff, including Dr. Stacie Grannum and her assistant Jane, consistently wear masks while interacting with families in their homes. By doing so, we aim to create a protective barrier that prevents the spread of any potential viruses or infections.

 
Additionally, we recognize the importance of staying up to date with the latest medical advancements and guidelines provided by the CDC. In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the seasonal flu, our team diligently keeps track of any updates and recommendations provided by health authorities. As a result, we ensure that both Dr. Grannum and Jane are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and have received their flu vaccines specifically for the 2023
-24 fall/winter season.  


By maintaining this proactive approach and taking the necessary steps to protect ourselves, we can confidently provide the highest level of care to you and your loved ones. Your health and safety are our top priorities, and we are committed to going above and beyond to ensure a safe and secure environment within our clinic.

We Prioritize Health Precautions for People and Pets


Our mobile veterinary team takes several health precautions while providing services in your home to ensure the safety and well-being of both your pets and your family. These precautions are crucial in preventing the transmission of diseases and maintaining a clean and sanitary environment.   

 

First and foremost, we prioritize hand hygiene. We rigorously wash our hands with soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer before and after each interaction with your pets. This simple yet effective measure helps to eliminate any potential pathogens and reduces the risk of cross-contamination.  

 

Furthermore, we are equipped with personal protective equipment (PPE) to create an additional barrier between ourselves and any potential infectious agents. This typically includes gloves, masks, and gowns, which are worn as necessary depending on the nature of the procedure being performed. These protective measures not only safeguard the veterinarian from any potential pathogens but also prevent the transfer of any contaminants from one pet to another.  

 

In addition to personal protective equipment, we also take steps to sanitize our equipment and ensure proper disinfection practices. We use high-quality disinfectants that are effective against a wide range of pathogens to clean our medical instruments, scales, and any other surfaces that come into contact with pets. This thorough disinfection process helps to minimize the risk of transmission and maintain a safe environment.  

 

Our veterinary team follows strict protocols when it comes to handling and disposing of medical waste. We adhere to all relevant regulations and guidelines to ensure the proper disposal of sharps, contaminated materials, and other potentially hazardous waste. By doing so, we minimize any potential health risks and contribute to environmental sustainability.  

 

Lastly, we prioritize open communication and transparency with our clients. We provide detailed instructions and guidance on post-visit care, including any necessary precautions to be taken by pet owners. This ensures that pet owners are well-informed and can take appropriate steps to maintain the health and safety of their pets after the veterinarian's visit.  

 

We Come From a Smoke-free Environment

 

Our mobile veterinary business is operated from a smoke-free environment, ensuring a clean and healthy atmosphere for both our team and the animals we treat. We understand the importance of maintaining a smoke-free home as it promotes better respiratory health and minimizes any potential discomfort or allergies that smoke can cause. By upholding this standard, we prioritize the well-being of everyone involved, creating a professional and caring setting for our veterinary services.
