COVID-19 & Pets

We are here to serve you and your pet's needs during this difficult time. Please keep these things in mind and call our office to make alternate examination arrangements. 

Please call  (360) 573-8838 or (360) 5-PETVET to discuss your options if your pet needs care and :

  • You show any signs of illness, such as fever, coughing or sneezing, even if you believe it to be due to seasonal allergies.

  • You or a family member have been asked to quarantine, due to exposure to the  COVID-19 virus.

  • You believe you may have been exposed, regardless of whether you have been asked to quarantine.

We are happy to offer drive-up service, if you'd prefer, for purchases of prescription food and medications. Simply call the office, pay over the phone and call us when you're in the parking lot for delivery to your car.

We will continue to offer our regular service as long as we are able or until the state changes rules for access to veterinary care.

Other considerations:

Please be aware that the information below is from national veterinary authorities, but little is known about this virus. Realize that this information is subject to change and will be updated to reflect those changes.

   From the American Veterinary Medical Association website:

     "The CDC has not received any reports of pets becoming sick with COVID-19 in the United States, and we have no information that suggests that pets might be a source of infection for people with the coronavirus that causes COVID-19.

     To date, the only pets incidentally exposed to COVID-19 that have tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 are two pet dogs in Hong Kong and two pet cats (one in Belgium, the other in Hong Kong). In each case, the pet was in the care of and had close contact with a person who had been confirmed to have COVID-19. Only in the case of the cat in Belgium was there a suggestion of the animal showing clinical signs of disease and, in that case, other diseases and conditions that could have caused those same signs of illness were not ruled out and there are also questions about how samples demonstrating the presence of SARS-CoV-2 were collected and evaluated. That cat recovered.

     Until more is known about this virus, if you are ill with COVID-19 you should restrict contact with pets and other animals, just as you would restrict your contact with other people. When possible, have another member of your household or business take care of feeding and otherwise caring for any animals, including pets. If you have a service animal or you must care for your animals, including pets, wear a cloth face covering; don’t pet, share food, kiss, or hug them; and wash your hands before and after any contact with your pet or service animal. You should not share dishes, drinking glasses, cups, eating utensils, towels, or bedding with other people or pets in your home."
