In an effort to reduce risks and exposure for both our staff and our clients, we will be restricting traffic in and out of the hospital until further notice. Clients are not allowed to enter the building at this time; we are strictly curbside for all appointments. We ask that clients remain in their vehicle and call when they arrive. A technician will take a history over the phone and address any questions or concerns.
We ask that you follow these steps in order for us to continue to provide care for your pets at this time:
1) When arriving for your appointment, please call us at 524-2553 to let us know you are here. A technician will discuss your pet’s needs over the phone. Following the exam, the veterinarian will call you with what was found on exam, and discuss a plan for treatment. Please do not leave the parking lot during the exam.
Exceptions and arrangements will be made for end of life situations.
2) If you need to refill medication or food, please call ahead of time with your request. Once approved, we will take payment over the phone and place your purchase outside our front doors when you arrive to pick up.
3) Please reschedule your appointment if you have a cough, fever, have traveled in the past two weeks, or have been exposed to COVID-19.
Thank you for your understanding and continued patience as we all navigate this uncertain time together. Please watch for updates as the situation can change daily.
Covid-19 update 03/27/2020
In light of Governor Chris Sununu’s ”Stay-at-Home” mandate, as well as the progressing COVID-19 disease outbreak, we will be making some changes to our hospital office hours starting on Monday, March 30th extending through to Monday, May 4th.
We will be open Monday through Friday from 9:00am to 5:00pm with no Saturday office visits.
Office visits will still be limited to the following:
- Sick or injured pets
- Emergency appointments
- Rabies vaccinations due to Human Health risk
- Puppy or kitten exam & vaccine series for 16 weeks & under
We will not be seeing non-essential appointments at this time in order to help limit potential exposure and spread of this potentially debilitating disease.
Non-essential appointments include:
- Toenail Trims
- Anal gland expressing
- Routine wellness exams and vaccinations (with the exception of rabies only vaccines or puppy / kitten series)
We understand that this is not necessarily convenient for everyone. However, we feel it is in the best interest of our staff, our clients, our families and our community, to make these changes to help “flatten the curve”.
Please note, we are still not allowing clients into the hospital. If our staff get sick, we will not be able to continue to help you and your pets. The new system of curbside appointments has been a learning experience for all of us. We know this is a trying and stressful time for many, so let’s all work together and do our part.
Stay Healthy and please call us with any questions or concerns.
