COVID-19 UPDATES

Penny Paws is actively promoting health and safety for everyone.

Nothing is more important than your health and safety, and the need to protect those most vulnerable to the coronavirus.

We are taking multiple steps to minimize health risks to our staff, clients and community. We remain vigilant in monitoring the most up-to-date safety, infection control and cleaning protocols recommended by global experts, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the U.K. National Health Service (NHS) and others.

Our team will continue monitoring the situation and post any changes to mobile vaccination locations, hours, or other news on our website and social media channels to ensure our clients have the most up to date information.

Thank you for your understanding,
Penny Paws Team

How will I know my animal or family members are safe?

Our team has implemented recommendations by the State and Federal Government to ensure the safety of you and your pets, such as:

  • Physical distancing of 6 feet a part and 10 people or less
  • Additional sanitation and cleaning of facilities
  • We don’t work with sick team members
  • We immediately place clients in exam rooms
  • We have clients wait in their cars during appointments
  • We offer Zoom video while the pet is in room and the client can watch from their car
Can my pet get coronavirus?

The Coronavirus that infects animals can sometimes be spread to people, but this is rare. We do not have evidence that companion animals, including pets, can spread COVID-19 to people or that they might be a source of infection in the United States. If you are sick, it is recommended that you restrict contact with your pet as much as possible, and follow these habits:

  • Wash your hands after handling animals, their food, waste, or supplies.
  • Practice good pet hygiene and clean up after pets properly.
  • Talk to Penny Paws if you have questions about your pet’s health.

There is still much to be learned about the spread of COVID-19 from animals to humans, and humans to animals. To learn more visit the CDC.gov website.
