The Doctors and Staff at TAC
We are still seeing patients, but are taking extra steps to ensure your safety and the safety of our staff.
If your pet needs to be seen, but you wish to avoid the waiting room, TAC offers drop off appointments. We can meet you at your car and call you when your pet is ready to go home.
If you need to visit our office but are sick or have had contact with someone who has coronavirus, please call the front desk to make arrangements for the care of your pet.
Finally, please limit the number of people you bring to your pet's appointment. This will help to minimize the risk of exposure to our staff and other clients.
Thank you for your help!
We've had a lot of great questions about coronavirus over the past 2 weeks. Fortunately companion animals do not seem to be affected by COVID-19.
What can you do to be prepared? For now, we recommend keeping AT LEAST 2 weeks of your pets' food and medications on hand. In the event of quarantine, you'll need to avoid contact with other people for at lest 2 to 4 weeks.
Additionally, please follow the CDC's recommendations concerning your own health and safety.

COVID-19 - heard of it??
What can you do to prevent spread of this novel coronavirus?
There is currently no vaccine to prevent COVID-19. The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to the virus and to follow strict hand washing and other hygiene protocols.
More specific ideas:
• Designate your practice/workplace as a temporary NO HANDSHAKE ZONE. Ask colleagues and clients to refrain from shaking hands (fist bumps or forearm bumps are good substitutes).
• Practice good hygiene: Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after using the restroom; before eating; after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing; and between client/patient visits.
• If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with 60%-95% alcohol.
• Place hand sanitizer, sanitizing wipes, and tissues in all exam rooms, meeting rooms, restrooms, break rooms, and other common areas.
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
• Cough or sneeze into your elbow or use a tissue to cover your nose and mouth, then throw the tissue into the trash can.
• COVID-19 symptoms are similar to those of influenza (e.g., fever, cough, and shortness of breath), and the current outbreak is occurring during a time of year when respiratory illnesses from influenza and other viruses, including other coronaviruses that cause the common cold, are highly prevalent. To prevent influenza and possible unnecessary evaluation for COVID-19, all persons more than 6 months old should receive an annual influenza vaccine. Vaccines are still available and effective in helping to prevent influenza.
• Voluntary home isolation: If you are ill with symptoms of respiratory disease, such as fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, chills or fatigue, stay at home. The CDC recommends that you remain at home until at least 24 hours after you are free of fever (100 degrees F or 37.8 degrees C) or signs of a fever without the use of fever-reducing medications.
