The persistent pursuit of providing quality, compassionate and expert care to animals in need of urgent and emergency treatment is the focus of a new video published on the Purdue Veterinary Hospital website.  The video features a message from Dr. Ellen Lowery, the hospital director, about the special precautions now in place to protect everyone’s health and safety in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, from hospital clinicians and staff to the clients and their animals.  The video also includes comments from Dr. Nolie Parnell, small animal chief of staff, and Dr. Nickie Baird, large animal chief of staff, and shows the car-side service now being utilized to receive patients.  In her message, Dr. Lowery explains how clients should call the appropriate reception area upon arrival and follow CDC guidelines for wearing cloth masks and maintaining social distancing when they transfer their animals to the hospital team member who will come out to meet them at their vehicles and bring their animals into the hospital for them. 

The video was shot by Purdue Hall of Music Productions videographer Qiqi Wu with assistance and support by hospital versa technologist Mackenzie Pfledderer, RVT.  Click here to view the video on the hospital home page.
