COVID-19 Precautions at PARC
Peninsula Animal Referral Center
24-Hour Emergency and Specialty Veterinary Care
Under the new guidance for Virginia masks are only required for those individuals not vaccinated. Due to our caseload our lobby is too small to accommodate clients. We ask that you remain in your vehicle until we are able to place ONE person per pet in an exam room. You may contact us at (757) 874-8115 for an update on your wait however if another emergent case arrives you may have to wait longer. Verbal abuse and physical threats of violence will not be tolerated. We sympathize with your concern for your loved one however we have to properly triage.
As an Emergency Clinic, we are triaging patients accordingly. Life threatening cases including but not limited to Hit by Car, Seizures, Toxicity, Open Lacerations, GDV, Urinary Blockages and Respiratory Distress Cases will take precedent over stable non-life-threatening emergencies. Please understand that our wait times may be 2-3 hours but up to 3-5 hours.
The Emergency and Specialty services at PARC are fully operational and we will continue to see emergencies. We truly appreciate your support as we continue to provide quality patient care in a safe environment. We strongly recommend that you follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Virginia Department of Health for the latest updates on COVID-19.
