Changes to Appointment Process


Please be aware that as of Monday, Jan. 10, our Veterinary Teaching Hospital and our Pet Health Center will be adjusting their appointment processes. Our small animal emergency service and the Pet Health Center will change to curbside service only (clients will not be allowed inside the facility). In addition, our small animal and large animal specialty services will change to a modified curbside service (clients can come into the building to check in and out, but they will not be allowed to stay for their appointment). These changes are in response to the highly contagious nature of the current COVID strain. As a healthcare facility, we must take these precautions to maintain a safe working environment that allows us to continue offering world-class veterinary care to our patients.
