Dear Clients,

Along with the province, we are continuing our re-opening plan. The following is the current status:

1. The doors are open for anyone to come in. This means appointments and those purchasing retail items. 

2. Because of on going social distancing requirements, we are only allowing 15 people in the lobby at once. We ask that you be mindful of keeping 6’ from the people around you while in the lobby. 

3. We are still taking email (or phone) orders for those who would like to continue to do curbside pickup at the side door. Please send an email to prescriptions@southshorevetservices.ca. 

4. Because of extremely high demand, we continue to need 24 *business hours* to process medication refills (even if you walk in the front door to order). This includes flea and tick medication. Food can be purchased while you’re at the clinic (except for special orders). 

5. Due to on going social distancing requirements, there is still only one person per pet, per appointment.

- The team at South Shore Veterinary Hospital
