Dear VetUrgency Clients and Friends,
We wanted to provide some clarification to those of you who may need the services of VetUrgency for your pets in these uncertain times. Pursuant to the new Stay-At-Home Directive from Governor Hogan as of March 30, 2020 we have pulled excerpts from his Executive Order as it pertains to the availability of veterinary services to the community and our ability to remain open and operational at this time. We are here for you and your pets! We are still utilizing our curbside concierge service and reducing contact as much as possible while safely and thoroughly caring for your pets.
II. Stay-at-Home Order. a. All persons living in the State of Maryland are hereby ordered, effective as of 8:00 p.m. on March 30, 2020, to stay in their homes or places of residences (“Homes”) except:

Obtaining necessary supplies or services for one’s self, family, household members, pets, or livestock, including, without limitation: groceries, supplies for household consumption or use, supplies and equipment needed to work from home, laundry, and products needed to maintain safety, sanitation, and essential maintenance of the home or residence;
