COVID-19 Update and Information

We have an obligation to keep you, your pets, our staff and our community healthy during the COVID-19 outbreak. Over the past few days we have fielded many inquiries about how we are handling the COVID-19 outbreak at our practice. In order to help prevent the spread of the virus but also continue to care for our patients, we are instituting the following action plan:

Concierge Car-Side Service:

Social distancing is crucial to stopping the spread of this virus. To help with social distancing and decrease the number of people in our hospital at one time, we will no longer be seeing clients in exam rooms.

What this means for you and your pet when visiting our hospital:

When you arrive for your scheduled appointment, please call our office (ph: 828-232-9990). A receptionist will check you in from the car. A technician will walk out to your car, get all the information about your visit that day, and then bring your pet inside the hospital for their exam. After examining your pet, the doctor or technician will call to speak with you about their findings and any recommended treatment. After treatment has been provided for your pet, a staff member will bring your pet back to the car.

Feel free to ask our staff for the option to drop off your pet for the day. 

One exception to car-side service is for our clients in need of our Euthanasia service. For these clients and pets we will absolutely allow you to enter the hospital and you will be escorted to our comfort room. You can take all the time you need in our comfort room.

Payments

We will begin taking most payments over the phone to limit exposure for our front desk personnel. Once your pet’s exam and treatments have been completed, one of our staff will bring out your invoice and go over it with you. If you are paying with a card, our reception staff will take this information over the phone and bring your receipt back out to you if needed. If you need to pay with cash, you may give it to our staff at that time and they will process the transaction for you.

Medication Refills

For all medication refills we request that you call ahead. We will call you when your medication is ready for pick-up and take payment over the phone. Upon arrival, give our hospital a call and a staff member will bring your medication out to you.

Your pet’s health is very important to us. Hopefully, by implementing these government advised measures we can still continue to provide health care to your pet while keeping everyone as safe as possible. We ask for your patience during this uncertain time.

Coronavirus Update

During the coming weeks/months of coronavirus risk, we at The Pet Vet on Patton welcome your requests to drop off your pet from your car. We are happy to meet you outside the building to take your pets history for a drop off appointment. A drop off appointment is when your pet is left with us for their visit with a doctor. Scheduled visits can also be handled in this manner if you prefer in the coming weeks, though care for your pet is more complete when we have proper lighting etc. We also offer this service for boarding or daycare. Please just call ahead and we can be ready! Thanks - Dr. Lea Osborne Vines - Owner of The Pet Vet

What our clients say about The Pet Vet on Patton

  • Absolutely love this office! Appointments are on time and my vet-nervous dog LOVES the doggie daycare and pet boarding. They always treat my dog with love and respect, keeping it short and sweet and as un-scary as possible for her. Today I needed our first "same-day sick appointment" and they were more than helpful getting us in. After our visit, I received an email from Dr. Paluselli with additional research and information. Amazing care, I fully recommend! PS- I just remembered that on our first day of doggie daycare, they sent me a photo of my girl in the yard to let me know she was doing well! Exceptional staff.

  • Great people, top notch facility and a very fair price. My dog is having a great time at daycare and I'm a very satisfied patron.

  • I thought I was adopting a 10 year old dog and we would just have him a few years. Well, 9 years later, I still have him. And the Pet Vet on Patton has continued to provide us with budget friendly options for us as Henry ages. They take plenty of time to hear our concerns. They've also provided free, over-the-phone advice that addressed his diarrhea (very helpful!). A few years ago, due to a freak accident at the dog park, Henry had a fracture in his jaw (he got his mouth stuck under another dog's collar). The Pet Vet on Patton recommended that we not do surgery but just take anabiotic's and anti-inflammatories and wait it out. My dog healed up just fine! I also received follow up phone calls from the doctor to check in and see how he was doing. All in all I think this is a great vet office. they have provided us with compassionate care and budget friendly options along the lifespan of my dog.

  • Going to the vet has always been very stressful. My dog has never even liked a vet before, and to my amazement he LOVES the Pet Vet. They have an extremely caring, warm, and helpful staff that has worked with him and made him feel really comfortable on their care. It's incredible to know I can now leave him in capable hands (doggie daycare is awesome too!). Highly recommend!
