NEW HOURS OF OPERATION – Mon-Fri 8:00 am – 12:00 pm
We will reschedule all non-essential appointments so as to limit public exposure.
We will use tele-triage and tele-medicine as it fits under a legal Veterinary Client Patient Relationship (VCPR) to help with follow-up and even initial visits to reduce exposure.
As you call-in we will ask a number of questions to help us determine the best course of action. When you arrive for your appointment, REMAIN IN YOUR CAR and either call or honk to let us know you are here. A staff member will come to your vehicle to obtain history and patient. We will care for them and then return them to you.
We will still see puppies and kittens to get them through their initial vaccines and their 1yr booster, but if they are beyond that they can lapse for some time with minimal risk.
The human medical field has already approached veterinarians as a profession to help preserve personal protective equipment and medical supplies. As a result of this, we are limiting our visits to only sick, injured, and emergency situations. Please be patient with us as we continue to stay on top of the situation and serve you all to the best of our abilities.
We are temporarily discontinuing any boarding or grooming appointments that are not done for medical necessity.
We are also discontinuing routine travel to outlying areas to help reduce the risk of spread to or from those areas. We will evaluate the need for farm and house calls on an as needed and safety basis.
We are working on a call system to be able to respond to our clients’ needs between the noon hour when we close and 5:00 pm when the Southwest Animal Emergency Clinic in St. George opens. This is a top priority and we will update you as soon as it is available.
Remember we have an ONLINE STORE: https://kanabvet.vetsfirstchoice.com/ where you can purchase food and medical supplies that you would normally purchase at the clinic. **Note – if an RX is needed, the online store will make that request directly to Kanab Veterinary Hospital on your behalf.
