Dear Cottonwood Vet Clinic Customers,

We are committed to provide world class veterinary care, however, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will be changing the way we run our daily operations to help decrease the spread of the virus.

In order to protect you and our staff, we have begun to change patient intake and care:

When arriving to Cottonwood Vet Clinic, please check in with the receptionist and return to your car until your appointment.

During your appointment, we request that only one owner attend their animal in the exam room.

Waiting room will be closed except for check-in and check-out.

We request that if you are feeling sick please stay home and to call us if you have an emergency with your animal. We will be limiting office visits to necessary and emergency animal care.

Cottonwood Vet Clinic is here to assist you and your animal. As of this time, we will remain open. Please call ahead to make appointments for your animal. If you help us with reducing the spread of the virus we will be able to provide medical care for your animal during this pandemic.

If any of our employees become infected we will shut down.

For more information regarding your pet and COVID-19, please visit the American Veterinary Medical Association and/or the CDC websites.
