About OVC Health Sciences Centre
Effective November 22nd, 2021 the HSC is pleased to let you know that vaccinated clients will be permitted to enter the hospital with their animals.
In these cases, only one client will be allowed into the building per patient. Clients will accompany their pets into the building to check in for their appointment, and, you will also be allowed to meet the clinical team in the exam room.
To ensure we can accommodate as many face-to-face appointments as possible, clients will not be allowed to wait in exam rooms or waiting rooms during exams or procedures. We will ask that after you check in you please wait in your car until a member of our team contacts you.
We will also continue to use telehealth appointments whenever it is appropriate.
We appreciate your patience during this transition time. Our gradual return to reopening is intended to ensure the safety of our clients and our healthcare team so we can continue to provide the best possible care for your pets.
