OpenDoors 2021

June 28, 2021

Update on mask mandate. 

Our office will no longer require that clients wear masks to enter our facility. We will continue to recommend that any persons who have not been fully vaccinated against COVID -19 to continue to wear their masks while they are here, for their own and others' safety. We will continue to allow clients who have a regularly scheduled appointment to enter the building and ask that only one person per pet enter. We will also continue to offer curbside service to any person who chooses it. Surgeries and drop offs will be handled by curbside service. As changes continue, we thank you for your continued patronage and cooperation.

Dogwood Animal Hospital is pleased to announce that we plan to open our doors to the public for the first time in a year, starting on April 12, 2021. We are all looking forward to being able to see your faces soon. Below is a list of guidelines that we have put in place to help keep everyone safe and comfortable. All of our precautions have been derived from the advisement of the CDC or local health authorities. The success of and continued operation with open doors is dependent on your cooperation, please take the time to understand why we have taken these measures. Our number one priority is the health and safety of our clients, patients, and employees.
