COVID-19 Precautions - Watkins Glen Veterinary Hospital

Ah, life.  I hope this missive finds you healthy, happy, and perhaps with too much time on your hands. We  plan to stay open and healthy to deliver veterinary care for our clients and pets through the duration of this pandemic.  In this challenging time a dearth of information about the current pandemic necessitates that we take measures to protect both our clients and the members of our staff so that we remain available to deliver veterinary care.  The value and importance of the conversations that take place in the examination room between the veterinary staff and pet owners must be temporarily conducted in a different fashion to protect the health and safety of both. As of March 17, 2020, the following precautions will be taken to protect our valued clients, our doctors and our staff from the potential spread of Coronavirus COVID-19 while continuing to provide veterinary care. These steps will remain in place until the risk of this pandemic has subsided.  By avoiding illness, these measures will allow us to continue offering services as long as possible. 

  • All appointments will be handled as we currently handle medical drop off appointments
  • When you arrive at the clinic, please remain in your vehicle with your pet. No clients will be allowed inside the hospital.  Please call our main telephone number (607-535-2544) when you arrive at the parking lot. We will meet you at the front door or your car to admit or discharge your pet. Please notify us if you need a leash provided. A member of our staff will come to the front door to bring your pet into the building for evaluation. 
  • A staff member will either help you fill out the pre appointment history at your car or on the telephone.
  • Please remain available for consultation or additional treatment authorization by telephone.
  • For surgeries and extended medical cases, we will call when the procedures are complete to arrange a discharge time.
  • Please make payments by credit / debit card on the telephone or via check or cash.
  • Physical examination findings will be communicated via telephone or email 

As unsettling as the current situation is, we will be here throughout, we will think and plan for the future, and we will be fine, together. 

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding, 

Kind regards,

Kyle Campbell DVM

Watkins Glen Veterinary Hospital accepts routine wellness appointments, medical, surgical, and dental cases by appointment.  We work closely with board-certified specalists to ensure that our patients receive the highest quality care.  In addition to first rate pet care, our clinic is comfortable, family friendly, and a calm environment so your pet can relax in the waiting room and look forward to meeting his or her own veterinarian.

The veterinarians at Watkins Glen Veterinary Hospital believe that the best veterinary care for pets focuses on preventative care and problem prevention.  We encourage owners to ask questions and be proactive in the lifelong healthcare of their pets, because we feel owners play an important role in nutritional management and weight control, heartworm prevention, flea/tick and parasite control and dental care. We have a number of resources for you to learn about how to take better care of your pets.  Browse around and look at our articles and pet videos. 

Our clinic is centrally located in Schuyler County and is easily accessible, and you can find directions on our Contact Us page.  You can also subscribe to our newsletter which is created especially for Watkins Glen pet owners.  In between your veterinary visits, your pet will benefit from you reading these free informative articles.

At Watkins Glen Veterinary Hospital, we treat your pets like cherished family members.
