Far Hills Animal Clinic is open to assist you and your pet during this time. Due to more stringent social distancing protocols, no clients will be allowed in the building for product pick up or most appointments (see below). We ask that all clients park and call us upon arrival from the car and we will help you from there.
Appointments are being done "Carside". After calling, one of our staff will come out to your vehicle and get a brief history. They will then bring your pet inside to see your Vet. After the examination the doctor will come outside and discuss the exam findings and any treatments that may be medically necessary. Treatments will not start until they have discussed this with you. When treatments are over a receptionist will call you and collect payment over the phone. Once payment has been received, the assistant will bring your pet and any medicine needed out to you. We are making exceptions to this policy for end-of-life appointments and will discuss protocols for these appointments as the need arises.
Medicine and Food Pickup are also being done "Curbside". When calling in your order you can pay for it at that time or at pick-up. Again we ask that you stay in your vehicle and call the clinic when you park. One of our staff members will bring your order out to you.
Surgeries and dental cleanings have been limited as well. We have been instructed to postpone elective procedures to conserve personal protective equipment (PPE). Though, all surgery and dental needs will be evaluated by your doctor and discussed with you to determine the medical necessity and timeline for scheduling.
Please be patient with us through this time. We are doing our best to provide your loved ones with the treatment and care they need and deserve. Our staff is taking extra precautions to help ensure your safety as well as theirs. We are making sure everything is cleaned thoroughly between each appointment and patient. Extra attention is being paid to the doors and other commonly touched surfaces. Social distancing is being practiced within the clinic and proper protection is being used. All of these extra precautions may make wait times and appointment times longer than usual, please be patient as we work with you to provide the best care for you and your pets.
