March 17th 2020 Update
At Palatine Family Pet Care, we are closely monitoring the COVID-19 health crisis and adhering to the recommendations provided by the CDC in order to control and minimize the spread of the virus. Cleanliness and hygiene have always been priorities at Palatine Family Pet Care and we continue to clean all public areas and exam rooms frequently and thoroughly with virucidal and bacteriocidal cleansers. As we learn more about this situation we will be updating our website and Facebook page.
We are instituting curbside appointments and medication pickup. We ask that owners remain in their vehicles and when you arrive please call the hospital at (847) 496-5387. Our receptionist will get all the information over the phone, then a technician will come out and bring your pet back inside while you remain in your vehicle. Once the doctor is done with her exam she will contact you and go over her findings. For the safety of the staff we will be taking payments over the phone. We are still accepting cash and checks, but request you bring exact change or let us know before hand the amount you will be paying to avoid multiple trips outside of the clinic. We ask all dogs be leashed and cats must be in a carrier. At this time we are not scheduling appointments for nail trims only. If you are feeling ill or have been around someone who is sick we ask you reschedule or have someone else bring in the pet.
We ask all medication be called in ahead of time. Payment can be given at that time or when you arrive. When you arrive to pick up the meds please call us at (847) 496-5387 and one of the receptionists will run it out.
