You will see us wearing masks. This is because we are very close to each other while we are performing examinations on our pets. This helps protect us for the long haul.
Animal Hospital Visits
Here are a few helpful guidelines when you visit Cherokee Animal Hospital.
Fill out the forms online before your visit.
We ask all appointments (inside and curbside) to remain in your car and give us a call, even if you are coming inside with your pet for their visit. We will come to get you as soon as your room is ready. This is simply to prevent pile ups of pets in our small lobby.
This does not mean you cannot come inside. Our lobby is open and available if you are picking up medications, boarding pets, our phones are busy, you have forgotten your phone, or just have a question. Please come in if you need the restroom or water as well.
While we see many patients inside one of our exam rooms, we will continue to offer curbside services to accommodate the high demand for appointments, any clients with their own health concerns, and those who simply enjoy this curbside model of veterinary service.
As always, curbside visits will continue to have face-to-face time with the doctor, who will visit you at your car to discuss your pet’s care. A nurse will collect history at your car, bring any medications to you, and check you out curbside as well.
We have a very small lobby and only four exam rooms in our hospital. One of the exam rooms is dedicated exclusively to cats. (They are so much happier and less stressed when they do not have dog smell in their space).
Unfortunately, this means that in order to see the number of patients that need us every day, we must have at least one doctor each day that sees patients exclusively through the curbside service, so that an exam room is not needed. We evaluate and treat these patients in the open hospital space instead.
If we have patients that are being seen on a more urgent basis, they are often seen curbside as well.
This is because the exam rooms have already been scheduled with regular appointments, but we still want to try to help those that need us unexpectantly.
We try to be accommodating but often clients must choose to wait a few days in order to be in an exam room or to see a specific doctor, or to be seen more quickly, but curbside with whichever doctor is available first.
With our space limitations, this is the best way we have found to take care of everyone to the best of our ability.
Finally, any dogs with coughing or upper respiratory symptoms will likely be evaluated outside in the rear of the building first. This is to decrease risk of potentially infectious diseases to other pets. If indicated, they may be moved into an exam room after the initial evaluation. Thank you for your cooperation in helping with this unconventional, but safer, approach.
