Coronavirus Updates

Updated May 21, 2020


At this time, we are asking clients to please wear masks or other face coverings if you are entering our hospital for any reason. 

As part of your family’s trusted healthcare team we are remaining open to serve your pets, but with significant modifications made to our operations to minimize contact and risk of spreading the Coronavirus.

Increased Precautions:

At Las Tablas Animal Hospital, we are known for our impeccably clean and welcoming hospital. However, we have ramped up the regular sanitizing of all touched areas including doorknobs, computer terminals, and workspaces. We are practicing good hygiene with frequent hand washing and having employees stay home if they show any signs of illness. Other increased precautions we are taking include:

ADJUSTED OFFICE HOURS. We are adjusting our office hours in order to accommodate our community and staff. Please note our new office hours and lunch time policy. Monday – Saturday 8:00am- 4:00pm and we will be closed for lunch from 12:00pm-1:00pm. Please call us before you plan to make a trip to pick up medications or food, so we can have everything ready for you. 

Conducting pet exams without owners present. Pet’s can be dropped off at the door and transferred to a LTAH member. Patient histories can be taken over the phone and treatment plans, discharge instructions and payments will also all be conducted via phone when possible.

Asking anyone who is actively sick, showing symptoms of COVID-19, or anyone who has been exposed to COVID-19 to stay at home and call us. We can arrange for medication or food purchases to be brought to your car.
