COVID-19 Protocol Update
Dear Valued Clients,
We wanted to take this time to thank you for your patience and support during these trying times. While we miss seeing you in person and while we are still providing excellent care for your pets, we understand how difficult it is to not be present in the exam room. The safety of our clients, as well as our staff, is still one of our top priorities during this complicated time. As more and more businesses begin to open their doors, we wanted to make an update about our current COVID-19 policy. In order to maintain proper social distancing and to keep you and our staff safe, we must continue to provide curbside service.
A Word About Grain-Free Diets
It has come to our attention that grain-free diets may be linked to a serious heart condition called dilated cardiomyopathy.
The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is currently investigating the issue but, until then, CVCA Cardiac Care for Pets recommends feeding your dog a standard diet containing grain, rice, corn, and/or wheat unless (s)he has a specific medical reason requiring a grain-free diet.
Dr. McMichael's Retirement Announcement
It is with mixed feelings that we announce Dr. Thomas McMichael's retirement.
Dr. Thomas has been an esteemed member of the College Park team for four decades now and we will miss him dearly. We hope he enjoys the next chapter in his life.
