Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update
On June 21st, 2021, SSVH will be resuming in person appointments. Those who are not comfortable with in person appointments may still request curb side service. Face coverings for vaccinated individuals is not required. Face coverings for unvaccinated individuals is encouraged.
On Monday May 11, SSVH will be resuming all normal services including wellness/vaccination exams and elective procedures such as spay and neuter. All services will continue to be provided by curbside service and the lobby will remain closed to the public.
Prescription medications and food may continue to be picked up at curbside. Please request refills online or by phone, or consider home delivery through our website.
On Wednesday Governor Tim Walz signed Emergency Executive Order 20-09 directing health care providers to delay all elective procedures and surgery. Starting Monday 03-23 at 5pm SSVH will no longer be providing elective procedures until further notice from officials.
To protect our clients and staff, essential visits and surgical patients will be dropped off and discharged car-side. Please call the hospital when you arrive and at pick-up so that we may send a staff member to assist you. Our staff will then call to provide recommendations on treatment options. Please DO NOT enter the building. Exceptions will be made for euthanasia procedures. These patients will still need to call the hospital to check in at arrival. If a pet parent is required to enter the building, our staff will direct you to do so and we request that the only one adult accompany their pet.
If picking up medications or prescription foods, please call the hospital when you arrive so that a staff member may deliver the product to your car. Please DO NOT enter the building.
These measures are to keep our staff and clients safe so that we may continue to serve you. Thank you for your cooperation.
South Shore Veterinary Hospital is dedicated to the health of our patients as well as our clients and staff.
We are scheduling essential visits only at this time. Please call to inquire about scheduling wellness visits for a future date.
Our normal protocol is to clean and disinfect our exam rooms between each patient as well as routinely sanitize surfaces and floors throughout the building. We have intensified our protocol to include door handles, waiting room surfaces and seating, among others.
If you prefer to wait in your car, please call the hospital to arrange for a staff member to receive your animal car-side or to be notified when an exam room is available.
We encourage clients who are ill to avoid trips to our hospital. If you need medications, prescription food or preventatives filled and are unable to visit us, please consider ordering from our website to support our small business.
Thank you for your continued support and your efforts to keep our community safe.
