New Bolton Center Announces Limited Clinical Status: Medically Necessary Appointments and Procedures Only

By: Carole Cloud Date: Mar 15, 2020

Due to the unfolding COVID-19 scenario, and out of concern for the safety of our clients, students, and employees, New Bolton Center will begin shifting to a Limited Clinical Status: medically necessary appointments and procedures only.

Effective as of Monday, March 16, 2020, we will be: 

  • Allowing only those appointments that address medically necessary conditions, or conditions that if left untreated, would negatively impact the welfare of the animal
  • Recording postponed appointments and contacting clients to reschedule once the situation moderates
  • Enforcing updated client and visitor policies for those dropping off/picking up animals and/or medication
  • Providing veterinary care through our Field Service, with a focus on preventative health and emergencies
  • Continuing to support the health and well-being of animals in agriculture across the Commonwealth
  • Providing free telemedicine services to support our referring veterinarian community. For more details, please download our telemedicine information sheet (PDF) or contact Dr. Cris Navas at navasdes@vet.upenn.edu or 979-229-4937.
  • Our Emergency Service will continue to operate 24/7 for emergencies: 610 444-5800 

    The Limited Clinical Status restrictions will be in place for a minimum of two weeks and will be reassessed based on COVID-19 progression.
