Richfield Veterinary Clinic Gets Help from New Veterinarian!
2020 has been a different and crazy year for all of us, and Richfield Veterinary Clinic has been no exception. We were excitedly anticipating the arrival of our new veterinarian in June. When the pandemic hit, we were able to get him a month sooner due to the early school closure!
Dr. Matt Hutchinson arrived at the beginning of May and has been right on time for what would be the ups and downs of living in the time of coronavirus. Like most businesses, we were worried initially about our ability to see sick pets, perform needed wellness and preventative care, and continue to work with spaying and neutering pets and doing other surgical procedures. For a time, we were required to do all our work curbside, which was definitely a challenge. We were also required to abide by the governor’s mandate to only perform essential procedures. Gratefully, we were still able to do our needed work and made it through that difficult time.
The arrival of Dr. Hutchinson was perfect timing as even with the pandemic, we have been dealing with an influx of sick and injured pets as we have never seen before. We have been keeping two doctors full time for five days a week, eight hours a day, as well as our regular after-hours emergency services. With both Dr. Johnson and Dr. Hutchinson rotating emergencies, we have increased our ability to be available when you need us, as well as giving needed time off to increase our own wellness.
We have also just been able to purchase an ultrasound, and we are working hard to increase our proficiency in it. This provides us the ability to assess fetus viability in our pregnant animals, from cats to cows. It also allows us a less invasive way to see masses, tumors, or other abnormalities within the bodies of our patients. We believe strongly that we are performing work that matters! That conviction has helped us get through the challenges placed before us. We really appreciate all our clients supporting us and being so kind to us as we all face the challenges of the time.
-Dr. Dan Johnson, Richfield Veterinary Clinic
The Richfield Veterinary Clinic was CCAW’s initial partner for spays and neuters for local animals. Dr. Dan Johnson was our primary vet until Dr. Jake Van Dykeopened his veterinary clinic here in Wayne County. We quite highly recommend both veterinary clinics for all animals and are very grateful for the help all these wonderful vets provide! -CCAW
