Veterinary practice seeing pet patients curbside amid COVID-19 pandemic


LATHAM, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Upstate Veterinary Specialties, a 24-hour pet care facility, is still seeing pet patients but with new safety precautions in place.

According to an Executive Order by Gov. Cuomo, emergency veterinary work is considered an essential business.

In order to serve their clients and pet patients properly, Upstate Veterinary Specialties isn’t allowing anyone in the building besides essential staff. When clients arrive in the parking lot, they call the front desk to inform them of their visit.

Dr. Aaron Wey is the owner and medical director at Upstate Veterinary Specialties. He’s also a practicing cardiologist.
