DURING COVID-19 

March 19, 2020

To our Valued Clients and Pets at Shamrock Animal Hospital,

Due to the coronavirus outbreak, we are implementing a change in our normal hospital procedures and will frequently be working with only limited numbers of staff.  We are committed to your pet’s healthcare and their needs and are doing our best to work with the limited resources we have. This means it may take longer than usual for a doctor or technician to call you about your pet’s lab work results if they are not urgent.  Similarly, messages that are left for the doctor which do not require emergency attention may take up to 24-48 hours for a response depending on our current situation.

With regards to your pet’s prescription refills, we ask that you submit your refill request with a reasonable amount of time before your supply finishes.  Refills requests may take between 2-7 days to process due to limited numbers of staffing as well as decreasing supplies of certain medications.  We cannot be held responsible for a delay in processing refills if you submit a request for a medication when you are nearly or completely out. Please plan ahead of time.

There are many medications and medical supplies which are becoming less available to us because the human healthcare system needs them or because they are produced in an area affected by the outbreak.  What this means is that some medications will no longer be available, and we likely will not know when they will be available again. As of right now, we know that the following medications are on backorder and unavailable:

  • Vetmedin (pimobendan)

We will try to update this list as we know more.  Some of these medications may have alternatives that you can use.  If you are having trouble filling your prescriptions, with us or with other outside pharmacies, please leave a message for your veterinarian and we will try to advise you on the best course of action.

Contact Numbers for the Clinic

If you are trying to reach the clinic for an inquiry or to make an appointment, please call our regular clinic number at 651-423-3565

We will do our best to keep our website, Facebook, and PetDesk updated with information moving forward. Go to shamrockvet.com for details.
