Dear Clients,
We want to update you on our hospital policies and procedures surrounding the COVID-19 situation. 
Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital continues to prioritize the protection of public health and also, the preservation of personal protective equipment in all aspects of our work.
As before, we are following the direction of the Board of Veterinary Examiners regarding client visitation and provision of services.  Earlier in this pandemic we were not able to provide non-urgent procedures, but this mandate has changed and all services are now being provided. We are continuing with curbside service as our client lounges remain closed and our hospital remains closed to visitors.
As recommended, we are only allowing patient visitation for euthanasia.
Ongoing preventative measures to ensure a healthy work environment for our staff include: maintaining as much physical distance as possible, wearing facial coverings, increased sanitation and cleaning, and conducting daily pre-arrival temperature screens for all personnel.
Please know that these protocols are necessary to ensure a healthy work environment for our staff which allows us to continue to serve you and your horse to the best of our ability. Thank you for allowing Rood & Riddle to be your trusted equine healthcare provider.
The Veterinarians and Staff of Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital
