At Modern Animal, your pet’s health and safety is our number one priority. All surfaces (exam tables, desk tops, floors, door handles, and kennels) and equipment are thoroughly disinfected between patients with Rescue Disinfectant from Virox Animal Health, which is a safe, gentle, and highly effective product that kills the most commonly encountered pathogens in veterinary medicine. Rescue’s manufacturers also assure us that this product kills SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.
All surgical and dental instruments are autoclaved (steam sterilized) after each use as well, to ensure that potentially harmful pathogens do not persist on equipment after use. Finally, Modern Animal follows a strict protocol to limit exposure to the general patient population when we are treating a patient that is confirmed or suspected of having an infectious disease.
