COVID-19

During this time, our number one concern is keeping both you and your pets safe.  We are working hard to provide ongoing care in a way that limits any potential exposure to COVID-19. We have implemented the Alberta Health Services Guidelines at the McKnight 24-Hour Veterinary Hospital in an effort to keep you safe:

Veterinary Hospital Safety

We are seeing changes in veterinary hospital policy and procedures on a regular basis, and will do our best to update this page with the most current information available in accordance with AHS.  At this time, clients are required to wait outside by the hospital entrance, where a Client Care Representative will be greeting you and taking down vital information about your pet to be admitted to triage. 

What do I do if I think I may have COVID-19?

  • Please call 811 if you believe you have the symptoms of COVID-19, or use the online assessment tool.
  • If at any time you are experiencing severe symptoms of shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, please go to the nearest emergency department.

Where can I find trusted information about COVID-19 in Calgary?
