COVID-19 is an unprecedented pandemic disease. Like millions of other small businesses across our country, we have changed our business protocols in order to protect our team members and our clients. We have previously stopped any client access to our hospital as a way to reduce spread of this virulent disease. As of June 1st, we are modifying our protocols; clients will have the option of coming in our hospital for a face to face doctor's appointment or remaining in their car for a curbside appointment. Please read our hospital policies and protocols. Please be patient with our team members, as we are all working diligently to offer the exceptional veterinary care you have come to expect from our hospital during this stressful time in our world.
With any type of appointment, CALL OUR HOSPITAL WHEN YOU ARRIVE, 303-534-5440--- REMAIN IN YOUR CAR.
Every client will be asked if they have any symptoms of COVID, if they have had COVID or been exposed to someone with COVID or if they have traveled outside of the state within the past 14 days.
