The health and well-being of your pet is our top priority. As news of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) in our community continues to develop, we are closely monitoring the situation.

At this time, our hospital remains open during normal business hours, though this may change as events unfold.

Out of abundance of caution we are implementing new policies so we can continue caring for your pets while protecting the health of our caregivers.

- If your pet requires urgent/ER care and you are ill, please arrange for a trusted and healthy representative to transport your pet to our hospital. If you call ahead, we will gladly accommodate them and make appropriate arrangements.

-Please call once you get to the parking lot and we can process your needs there. Our front door will remain locked, though our facility will be open.

-Our Care Team will take your pet from your car and then call you to get any pertinent history, perform our physical exam and assessment of your pet, and then call you with a treatment plan for approval.

-We will accept credit card payments by phone and checks or cash car-side.

- No personal items can be retained with hospitalized pets, including blankets, toys, collars, leashes, etc.

- Please respect a safe social distance (6 feet) guideline where possible and avoid shaking hands.

- During your visit please avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.

- We ARE allowing immediate family in the building for all euthanasia procedures, and details can be discussed on an as-needed basis.

For more information and health guidance regarding COVID-19, please visit the CDC, Indiana State Department of Health, and AVMA (American Veterinary Medical Association) websites.

Currently, there is no evidence at this point to indicate that pets can become ill with COVID-19 or that they spread it to other animals, including people.

These steps are in an abundance of caution, but will help ensure safety of our staff, our clients, and your furry friend.

COVID-19 Policy Update

Due for a Dental Cleaning?

Has your furry best friend had a dental cleaning within the past year? If not, then they are overdue!

Just like humans, pets' teeth accumulate calculus, which increase the risk of dental infection and much more. Pets one year of age or older require at least yearly dental cleanings to maintain their oral health. Dogs and cats have teeth, too!

Learn more about dental cleanings and what happened to "Maddie's" face to make her come see The Vet!
