Welcome to Riverview Veterinary Clinic

At RVC we are animal lovers first! Rest assured that your furry family member will always be treated with kindness and compassion.
Dear Riverview Vet Family,
We have had several questions and concerns about our current COVID protocols,
with the largest concern being our curbside operations.
I wanted to touch base with you all to clarify why we are operating as we currently are.
I understand that COVID has placed stress on everyone and has caused changes in our world that are inconvenient and stressful. Having said that, we are doing our absolute best to make your animals visit to the clinic as comfortable and stress free as possible.
As you all know, RVC is a single veterinarian practice. We have a grand total of 6 staff members, one of which is currently working strictly from home.
We do not have the luxury of multiple separate “teams” that work exclusively together. If by chance, any one of our staff members tests positive for COVID, or is exposed to a COVID positive individual, we ALL must self quarantine....
As a result, the clinic then shuts its doors for a minimum of 2 weeks, as there is no one else to take over and care for your pets.
Clinics with multiple teams, and several veterinarians are able to maintain an open door policy by using the separate "team" approach.
For this reason, we have elected to operate as “curbside” only and no one other than staff are permitted in the building, until we are certain a COVID exposure will not shut our doors.
We have made one exception to the curbside protocols. Clients are allowed in clinic for euthanasia appointments, however, during these appointments we only allow 2 clients inside and they must wear masks at all times.
We ask for your understanding and patience, as these changes have been stressful and difficult for us as well as for you and your pets.
We will keep you updated via Instagram, Facebook and our website as protocols and hours change.
Thank you all for your support during these trying times!
Stay safe, stay healthy and be kind to one another!
Dr. Amy and RVC Staff
