Changes Being Implemented in response to the COVID-19 Coronavirus Pandemic

  1. Limite of ONE caretaker/family member with each pet presented to the hospital. 

  2. Preventative health appointemnts ARE LIMITED TO those cats and dogs due for rabies vaccination or heartworm testing. 

  3. Clients are encouraged to POSTPONE elective surgical procedures.  These include ovariohysterectomies, castrations, declaws & dentals without significant periodontal disease. 

  4. Unless it is an emergency, ALL PRESCRIPTIONS will be mailed to clients, or you will need to utilize the hospital's online store to fulfill prescriptions and pet food orders. 

  5. Scheduling for pets requiring in hospital treatment protocols (chemotherapy, laser therapy, etc.) will continue.  Recheck exams of ongoing cases will continue to be scheduled as needed.

  6. Sick pets & emergencies will continue to be seen.  ONE caretaker / family member is allowed to be with the pet upon arrival at the hospital. 

  7. Euthanasia appointments will continue to be scheduled.  ONE caretaker / family member is allowed to be with the pet upon arrival at the hospital. 

  8. Senior citizens, immunocompromised individuals, or those with pre-existing health conditions that might make them at higher risk of infection are STRONGLY ENCOURAGED to appoint a family member or other individual to bring their pet to the hospital should it require veterinary care.  We would encourage this segment of our clientele to stay at home until local, state, and national health authorities determine otherwise. 

  9. Any individuals with signs known to be associated with COVID-19 coronavirus infection (fever, tiredness, and dry cough) are UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES allowed to bring a pet to the hospital.  If this pet needs to be seen for emergency care, arrangements must be made for a different individual outside your household to bring your pet to the hospital for care.  

  10. These changes will be in place for the foreseeable future.  Additional measures may be implemented without hotice.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.  Your health, your pet's health, & the health of the employees of Lakeside Animal Hospital are our priority in facing this serious worldwide pandemic.  

We are all in this together!
