COVID-19 Update

  • The Veterinary Medical Center is currently giving priority to patients requiring urgent or emergency care. 
  • Clients will not be allowed in the hospital except for end of life issues. 
  • Appointments for less critical patients are not currently being scheduled. 
Clients seeking emergency care are encouraged to call ahead (612) 626-8387. Please be aware that in order to mitigate the exposure of clients and staff to coronavirus, the VMC has had to implement the following measures for clients of the VMC:
  • Please let us know if you or anyone in the pet's household is displaying symptoms of COVID-19  such as, fever, cough, or shortness of breath.
  • For clients arriving at the hospital, you will be given instructions to call our front desk and wait in the car with your pet. A team member will be in contact with you by phone to ask you questions related to your pet's visit, at which time a member of the care team will come to your car to transport your pet into the hospital. In most situations, you will not be permitted to enter the hospital.
  • Unfortunately, we will not be able to allow visitation to hospitalized patients during their stay except (on a case by case basis with clinician approval) in the case of end of life situations.
Protecting the health of our clients and employees is critical to our being able to provide care to our patients who need it most. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate this situation.
