Belair Friends and Family:

As a community, we are all facing personal and professional challenges due to COVID-19.  Now, more than ever, we want to assure you that our hospital is open, and remains an essential service. Our doctors and staff will continue to provide care for your pets, and we would like to take this opportunity to share with you the steps and recommendations we are taking to ensure the safety of all.

Everyone’s health and safety is our priority.

As a standard practice in veterinary medicine, our hospitals are always clean and sanitized.  However, in accordance with the CDC, we have increased the frequency and scope of these cleanings.  Additionally, all of our staff are required to maintain handwashing hygiene which is critical step in keeping everyone safe. If any of our staff feels unwell, we support their choice to stay home and focus on their personal health and well-being. We also want to work with you to limit direct contact in order to focus on safety for everyone during this pandemic.

We are open and here for you.  And able to see new clients.

Please know, we are open and here for you when you need us most.  We are seeing patients and providing the best care possible.  We are also accepting new patients to ensure everyone has access to an animal clinic during this trying time. Please do not hesitate to let a friend or family member know we are open if they are in need of veterinary care.  

Our services have temporarily changed.

For routine exams and procedures, we appreciate your patience as these services may have to be postponed. If your pet is experiencing any urgent medical need, please call us at immediately. Each pet’s health needs are different…please call us with any questions about services your pet may need. New pet and puppy/kitten care is considered essential (we know many folks are expanding their fur family during this time!). We are still able to process medication and order/sell food.

Monday 8a-6p

Tuesday 8a-5p

Easier and safer ways to visit our hospital.

To ensure the safety of our clients and staff, we are now offering curbside service!  Incredibly easy: call us when you get to our parking lot and we will pick up your pet from your car and our doctors will conduct an exam in the hospital while you wait. Then with greatest of care, we will bring your baby back to you safe and sound. Many of our pet parents love our new service, finding it easier than waiting in a lobby and appreciate all the attention we give to their pet.

Please remember our pets are safe from COVID-19.

The CDC and other health authorities have indicated that dogs, cats, and other domestic animals are not considered at risk for contracting COVID-19. From the available research, there is no evidence at this point that pets can spread COVID-19 to other animals, including people. As medical experts, we continue to keep abreast of the latest research and will do everything possible to ensure all pets entrusted to our care are kept safe.

Let’s stay connected!

Our pets bring us comfort during these difficult times. Let us know how you and your pet are doing by visiting our Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/belairveterinaryhospital and posting a photo.

We are in this together.

We want you to know we are in this together. Our dedicated doctors and staff are committed to the community and will continue to provide the best in veterinary care.  We thank you for support, patience and for doing your part to ensure that both pets and people remain safe and healthy.

Warmly,

Your Belair Veterinary Team
