COVID-19 New Protocols

Animal Emergency Hospital has implemented the following protocols


  1. Our doors are locked, please call once you arrive
  2. One of the team members will take your information and take your pets history over the phone
  3. Once we are ready we will come out to the parking lot to retrieve your pet and bring him/her into the clinic
  4. If this is an emergency, a team member will be out right away to bring your pet inside.
  5. Clients are allowed in the hospital for critical patients, and/or end of life. In the event you (the client) is allowed in, the following must be followed


  • Our team members will give you a COVID assessment over the phone, if you are free from illness, we will allow the healthy person who finished the questionnaire to accompany their pet during the appointment. You must wear a facemask for your appointment, if you do not have one you will not be allowed to accompany your pet
  • We will prepare a room, and once it is ready we will come out to the parking lot to bring you in
  • Once you arrive in the building, we do require you to use hand sanitizer prior to the appointment
  • The doctor will meet with you and your pet for the exam, they will be wearing facemasks as well


All rooms are thoroughly cleaned after each appointment and our staff are all wearing personal protective equipment.

If you are an owner that is at risk (elderly, immunocompromised), please consider sending someone in your place to your pets appointment. Our team members can call you to discuss the care or treatment options for your pet. 


If you are unwell, and this is a routine appointment, please cancel the appointment and re-schedule for a time when you are well.

Please be patient with us during this time. Many of our protocols have changed and with it, it is a longer check in process. These are extraordinary times and we are wanting to keep a safe work environment for our clients and staff. As such, if our employees have flu-like symptoms, they are required to stay home, which means at times we may be left short staffed. Our goal is to provide exceptional care to your pet while maintaining a safe work environment.
