ROSEBURG, Ore. -- Veterinary clinics in Douglas County are trying to continue serving patients while keeping their employees, clients and animals safe.

Umpqua Low Cost Veterinary Services is offering curbside service. It allows pet owners to stay in their cars while staff care for their animals inside the clinic.

Clinic staff said they are offering most services, like vaccinations, basic check-ups and filling prescriptions.

However, they said they are no longer offering non-emergency procedures, like spaying and neutering.

This complies with Gov. Kate Brown’s executive order to stop non-emergency surgeries in hospitals and other facilities to preserve the state’s personal protective equipment.

“We’re just going with the flow,” said Julia Russill, clinic director. We’re just doing what we need to do to take care of our clients and our patients.”

For the Love of Paws Veterinary Clinic is also offering curbside service to comply with COVID-19 restrictions and social distancing.

Clinic staff said they conduct most the of appointment over the phone while the animal is inside the building.

“It’s been going well,” said Dawn Stayberg-Luna, practice manager of For the Love of Paws. “We have our procedures as we go in and out of the building and cleaning.”

They also said they’re making a point not to touch personal leashes when they take the dog from its owner.

Instead, they’ll be using their own leashes that will be sanitized after.
