Returning to Curbside Appointments

In light of rapidly rising cases of coronavirus in Summit County and Ohio, we are returning to curbside style appointments for all appointments effective this Monday, November 16th. We feel this step is necessary to continue to protect the health and safety of our staff and clients. For the time being, our kennel will remain open and we will continue to see regular wellness/vaccine appointments, sick, and emergency appointments, as well as surgeries. 

As before, when you arrive for your pet’s scheduled appointment, please call our office from the parking lot at 330-650-2929. Our receptionists will take your information (including your car description and cell phone number) and a technician will come outside to retrieve your pet from your vehicle. The doctor will examine your pet and you will be able to discuss any findings, recommendations or prescriptions by phone while you wait. Charges will be handled over the phone, and a technician will return your pet to you in your vehicle. 

Additionally, if you need to pick up food or prescriptions, please call the office when you arrive in the parking lot. We will handle your charges over the phone and then bring you items to you while you wait in your car. 

For your pet’s safety, please ensure that your dog is on a leash and/or your cat is in a carrier before opening your car door. A mask is still required for interactions with our staff. If anyone in your household is sick with a cough, fever, or any other possible symptoms of Covid-19, please reschedule your appointment or have someone else bring your pet. 

Once again, thank you for your kindness and flexibility. Even as we all run into “Covid fatigue” and are tempted to relax our guard, you have all been amazing. Here’s to a safe and happy holiday season!

Sincerely, 

The Doctors and Staff of Hudson Veterinary Hospital
