COVID-19: Our Commitment to Keeping You Informed

Posted by Dr. Natalie Marks

"We want to give you a place to turn for the latest advice from the most trusted leaders in the industry."

These truly are unprecedented times. In the last two weeks, our lives have undoubtedly turned upside down. Not only are we dealing mentally with the daily stress of not knowing where this pandemic is headed and doing everything we personally can to “flatten the curve,” but we’ve also been dealing with the stress of not knowing how this will affect our work as veterinary professionals.

I’ve been a practicing veterinarian for almost 20 years. I’m the former owner and still in management at VCA Blum Animal Hospital in Chicago. From trying to figure out how to adjust for our clients while keeping our patients and team members healthy as we perform high quality medical care, to wondering how the next government announcement will shape what we can and can’t do – it’s been a whirlwind.

What we need most is transparency and accurate information.  There’s so much misinformation and so many things that even the experts say we just don’t know for sure yet.

We want to give you a place to turn for the latest advice from the most trusted leaders in the industry. They will readily admit that there are still questions without answers. But, what is most important is that we understand how to communicate to our clients and our team members during these hectic days.

One amazing thing that has come out of this is the way the veterinary industry has pulled together. I’m so proud to say that everyone we called was willing and ready to share what they know and offer resources and guidance so we all can take care of our clients, our team members, and our own families the best we can.
