We hope that you and your family are coping as best as you can during these stressful times. We are all affected by the recent pandemic in one way or another. As an animal hospital, we have made many adjustments to keep you safe and our staff protected. Owners should be aware that by visiting any facility outside of your home, including this one, you are voluntarily assuming all risk related to the exposure of COVID-19. There is an inherent risk of exposure in any public place where people are present. Please help us keep our community safe and healthy. We are strongly encouraging social distancing, wearing masks, and regularly checking your temperature. Most of all, please STAY HOME if you are sick, you have any symptoms of COVID-19, or have been in contact with someone who has. We will do our best to provide treatment to pets and livestock, but we do have protocols in place to protect our staff so we can continue to stay open during these difficult times.
