Dog waiting in carWe wanted to take the time to update all our wonderful clients about some important changes here at Barker Animal Hospital. Effective immediately we are moving to Curbside Concierge or TeleVet appointments ONLY.

Temporarily, our lobby will be closed to customers and guests. We want to protect both the health of our staff and our clients as best as possible while still being available to provide all your pet care needs. Our policies will be updated as needed to be compliant with current state regulations.

What does this mean?

As a reminder, preventative care for pets remains an important public health priority, even in this time of concern. For those with puppies and kittens, we encourage you to keep to your vaccination schedule to ensure your pet is protected.

Please call us with any questions or concerns at (757) 410-5533. And don’t forget to download the TeleVet app!

We will continue to keep you updated on additional changes. We appreciate your understanding as we work to make sure pets receive the care they need while keeping our team and our clients healthy and safe.
