The health and safety of our patients, clients, and staff is our top priority. That’s why we’re doing our part to slow the spread of the coronavirus during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Ontario’s lockdown order as of January 12th is issuing a stay at home order, only allowing individuals to leave their house for essential services. Veterinary appointments are considered essential. Any appointments you have currently booked will not be affected. 

Mount Joy Animal Clinic will continue to provide exceptional service by ensuring a team member is available at our front door, ready to receive your pet. 

The following are our operating procedures during the COVID-19 pandemic effective immediately and ongoing through the Spring. We are doing our best to continue serving you and your pets!
