Dear friends and family,
At Just Cats Veterinary Services, we have always been dedicated to the health and welfare of both you and your cats. We exercise intense cleaning and sanitizing along with washing our hands frequently to align with the CDC’s and AAHA’s recommendations for all viruses and bacteria that affect both people and animals. During this recent outbreak of COVID-19, as well as other SARS and Flu viruses, we are keeping close contact with our state and national associations to gather and disseminate the most up to date information. In addition, there is a cooperative program between all the world’s health professions called One Health. For more information, visit their website here.
At this time, our office hours are unchanged, however, please understand some appointment times may vary if our team are out ill or staying home to care for their children. Also, we ask that for the safety of our staff and clients, that you reschedule any wellness care for your kitty if you or a family member are experiencing symptoms such as fever, cough, congestion, sore throat, runny nose or shortness of breath or have recently traveled to endemic areas.
We are taking every precaution to protect our clients’ and staff’s health while continuing to provide care for your cat. In accordance with the CDC and our state and national veterinary organizations, we have instructions on how to care for kitties when owners are ill and their cat may need to be seen urgently. If you have been advised to avoid public areas by your physician but still need care for your cat(s), please call ahead and we will provide explicit instructions for your visit. No walk-in appointments will be received during this critical time. We ask your assistance in keeping this protocol in place.
Can your cat catch COVID-19? The current thinking is NO. Cats do have their own Corona virus and when it mutates it can be devastating.
COVID-19 and Pets
There has been a dog in Hong Kong that tested positive. The owner is positive, but there is no indication the dog is actually “infected” and has no clinical signs. Additional testing is underway.
In addition, Idexx laboratories announced March 13th that thousands of samples of both cats and dogs have been evaluated during validation of its new veterinary test system for the COVID-19 virus and have obtained NO positive results.

There may come a point where we will need to function in a more limited capacity. If that happens, we would be seeing fewer cats for well visits and elective procedures. We will keep you updated and do everything we can to uphold the exceptional veterinary care our clients and patients deserve. Please contact us at 281-367-2287 or via email, email@example.com, with any questions or concerns.
Thank you for your cooperation during this challenging time.
