Important Information on COVID-19 & Barker Animal Hospital

We wanted to take the time to update all our wonderful clients about some important changes here at Barker Animal Hospital. You now have the choice to come inside with your pet for their appointment. Curbside Concierge service is also an option or TeleVet appointments if you prefer.
