Here’s what we are doing to keep you safe:
PARKING LOT CHECK-INS
During these uncertain times, Woodside Animal Hospital is following similar guidelines set forth by human medical facilities and is offering curbside appointments. In keeping with the CDC’s request for social distancing, we are limiting the number of humans we allow in the hospital at any given time. Thus, we are currently checking patients in from the parking lot. Owners will remain in their cars during their pets’ exams.
We do have a phone number specifically dedicated to check-in. This number is posted in the parking lot and can be provided to you if you call our main line 360-871-3335. We ask that you not use this number for reasons other than checking in.
Please make sure you bring a working cellphone with you for your pet’s appointment. Your pet’s veterinarian will be calling you to discuss treatment.
TYPES OF EXAMS
To allow for social distancing, we have limited the number of staff we have in the building at any given time. Thus, we are not offering preventative care appointments, toenail trims, or performing elective procedures/surgeries at this time. If your pet is due for an annual exam, but you have health concerns for your pet, please let us know when you request an appointment.
The decision to limit appointments was not made lightly, but the health and wellbeing of our community and your pets remain our top priorities. Offering elective appointments hinders our ability to help those pets experiencing medical emergencies. We are still seeing ill and injured patients and will continue to do so for as long as permitted.
To allow us to more diligently focus on our already detailed cleaning regimens, we have increased the length of all appointments. This also enables our team to spend the extra time necessary checking patients in, discussing treatment plans, and discharging patients in a thorough manner. Please allow extra time in your schedule to accommodate these increased precautions.
Our online pharmacy is a great option for prescription requests. They will deliver medications and food right to your door! Bet yet, all products purchased through our pharmacy are guaranteed by manufacturers—this is not the case for all online pharmacies.
