Covid-19 Protocol & Updates

At Hamlin Animal Hospital the safety of our clients and our team is our main priority. We are investing a great deal of time and effort into developing a plan that allows us to see clients in-person in our exam rooms. 

Because of these safety concerns, and because we want to make sure that our clients have the best and safest experience possible, we will be adhering to the following guidelines:

  1. Clients who have pets scheduled for full exams will be eligible to accompany their pets to the hospital for the visit.  Only two adult pet parents per patient may enter the facility (adults only, children may not accompany pets or enter the facility).
  2. Clients who have a pet scheduled for euthanasia may have two family members enter with a pet. 
  3. All clients are asked to help us be considerate of all of our clients’ well-being and to make sure that if any have experienced any recent illness or are exhibiting any symptoms of illness, they refrain from entering with their pet and let us know so that we can have a plan to safely treat your pet. 
  4. All clients and team members who enter the building must be properly masked at all times. Properly worn masks are worn covering the mouth and nose, staff will not be allowed to enter an exam room if masks are not properly being worn by all parties. 

We understand that there is a great deal of confusion surrounding mask-wearing regulations, especially with the uncertainty and differing positions depending on county, city, and state mask guidance and we understand the confusion that this may cause for our clients.

We want to emphasize that at this point, our policies, regardless of vaccination status, state government, or CDC positions, require the use of masks by all of our team members, as well as our clients.

If you are uncomfortable wearing a mask then we can accommodate you by offering either a curbside appointment or a day admission for your furry family member. Please let the receptionist know when making your appointment if you prefer one of these two options.
