Dr. Lisa answers questions from the community:
Are you still open?
HousePaws will continue to see sick, emergency, and unwell appointments. We are following the recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) and are no longer seeing wellness appointments until it is deemed safe to do so by health officials. These recommendations are being made in the interest of public health and safety.
Our veterinarians are still performing house calls. Our hospitals remain open with our regular business hours. We are also offering telemedicine consults through the TeleVet app.
