Allenstown Animal Hospital

Important COVID-19 Update

Protocol and hours of operation.

1. We have suspended Saturday hours of operation until further notice.  Our new hours will be Monday through Friday, 8:00am – 5:30pm.

2. Beginning Monday June 14 we will be offering inside appointments – with limitations and restrictions. In order to ease our way back to some semblance of normalcy we will begin a “modified” appointment process. Because we don’t want, or have the time, to police everyone’s vaccine status (remember – only 50% in New Hampshire are fully vaccinated at this time) we will continue to require that you wear a mask while interacting with our staff – inside or outside. Our staff will be wearing masks as well. We know masks are a very contentious issue for some, but we kindly ask that you respect our wishes during your visit. We will also continue to offer curbside appointments for those who wish to continue to remain in their vehicle and not enter our building for the time being.

We urge you to please be on time for your appointment.  We have found it necessary to save more appointment time for sick and injured pets, and we highly recommend calling well in advance to schedule an appointment when you receive reminders for routine health services such as annual exams, vaccinations, etc.  It is extremely important to keep your pets up-to-date and protected!   We are currently booking well-pet annual visits about 5 weeks in advance.

3. Recheck lab tests requiring blood draws such as blood glucose tests, liver function, etc., will require a minimum of 7 days advance booking.  We recommend forward booking at the time of checkout for any recommended rechecks.

4. Unfortunately, we are suspending routine nail trims except at time of an appointment for an exam or other service.

5. We request a minimum 24-hour notice for medication/diet/parasite Preventative refills.  While the supply chain has been good, vendors have implemented an allocation policy for many pharmaceuticals to keep the supply pipeline stable and avoid hoarding. Because of this we cannot refill/dispense more than we normally would. Shipping times have doubled or tripled in some cases due to warehouse staff issues and UPS/FedEx capacity.  

6. We appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding during these unique and challenging times.  We are trying to adapt as necessary to continue to bring the high quality of care and customer service that you have come to expect for all of our 4 legged friends (and 2 legged too!).  Be safe everybody, wear a mask in public, keep your social distance (please!), and do not hesitate to contact us with any questions, comments or concerns.
