At Southside Hospital for Animals, we have always been committed to providing a safe environment in which you and your pets can receive treatment while feeling comfortable and secure. Our community, our people, and our pets are what is important to us, and both your safety and your pets' well-being remain our number one priority as we deal with the risks around COVID-19.
Our facility is thoroughly sterilized daily with the most advanced and effective disinfectants available, and we will continue to ensure that we take proper measures to minimize any potential risk. Our staff has been trained and instructed in the most effective cleaning protocols for our clinic.
To maintain "social distancing," we are limiting the number of clients allowed in the lobby, and asking clients to remain in their cars until we are ready to see them. If you have a scheduled appointment, simply call us when you arrive and one of our employees will come to the car to escort you and your pet straight into an exam room. We are only allowing one person per appointment. If you have additional people with you, we will handle your appointment curbside. (Exceptions will be made for euthanasias.) All persons entering the building must be wearing a face mask. If you are not comfortable entering the building, we will be happy to handle your appointment curbside.
If you need to pick up food or medications for your pet, please call when you arrive (24 hour notice is required for prescription refills) and we can take your payment over the phone and then bring the food/medications out to your vehicle. We strongly encourage you to coordinate home delivery for individual or reoccurring needs. We work with Vets First Choice to ensure that your pets receive the quality products that we utilize in our practice. The shipping of any food or prescriptions can be sent directly to your home via our online pharmacy when it is convenient for your schedule. A link to our online pharmacy is located near the bottom of this page.
To help streamline the drop-off process, we are asking that you have the necessary drop off forms filled out before you arrive. Links to the forms can be found below. When you arrive, call us from your car and when a staff member becomes available, they will come and get your pet from you.
While we cannot be certain of how long this virus will cause disruption, we are certain that we will get through this together, as a community. Thank you for trusting us as your partner in your pets' healthcare.
