Dr. Carlos Risco of OSU Gives Covid-19 Update

Dr. Carlos Risco of OSU Gives Covid-19 Update
Dr. Carlos Risco, DVM, DACT at Oklahoma State University has made a statement about how the College of Veterinary Medicine is handling the Covid-19 issue. Risco says,

"To our valued referring veterinarians:

We understand that the current pandemic is challenging us all to make changes to our daily lives. We are committed to being here to help you and your clients during this time, all while taking appropriate precautions to help protect the OSU College of Veterinary Medicine family and those we serve and to help curb the spread of COVID-19. We are making several changes that will take place at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, March 18.

Fourth year students will be released from the hospital for online learning only. Faculty are working on innovative approaches to deliver relevant clinical content to these students during this time.
The hospital will be accepting emergency cases only. Clients are being contacted to re-schedule non-emergency appointments.

We will implement curbside only admission and discharge. A staff member will meet the client at the vehicle to retrieve or deliver patients and communications will occur via phone. Access to the hospital will be limited to hospital personnel only. Pharmacy refills will be handled on a case-by-case basis.

The Oklahoma Animal Disease Diagnostic Laboratory will remain open, as it is critical to continuity for agriculture enterprises and the public health of Oklahoma.

As dean and hospital director and working with our veterinary administrative council, we will continue to monitor this changing situation. We will strive to make the best decisions using all available information provided to us by the university according to expectations and policies from state and federal public health leaders.

We appreciate your patience and understanding during this unprecedented time in our state and nation."
