Happy July Fourth to Everyone!  We have a few updates to share with you that we think you will enjoy.

On July 6th, we will begin welcoming all clients into most appointments (wellness, sick, quality of life and surgery admit/discharges) for the first time in more than a year! Everyone entering the hospital will be required to wear a mask, vaccinated or not.

Who is Eligible?  All clients now have the option to accompany their pet into appointments scheduled with a doctor.  All mini visits (ie. vaccine booster),appointments for technicians (ie nail trims, pre-op bloodwork) and food or medication pick ups will continue to be curbside.  In addition, Curbside is still available for anyone more comfortable with that process.  One client can accompany each pet into the hospital..

How does it work?  You will call/txt from your car when you arrive.  When we are ready for you we will welcome you to the Front Door and into the Exam Room.

This change will provide both in-person and curbside options for most appointments.  Our lobby will remain closed to walk ins so please call/txt us when you arrive! Thank you for your patience and understanding as we have all continually adapted to new COVID realities.

Other Updates:

– Newtown Vet will be CLOSED on July 5th in observance of July 4th Independence Day.  We will open at 8AM on July 6th.  Please plan ahead for any refills of medications and prescription foods.

– Masks are still required for all in-hospital appointments.  We appreciate your cooperation with this safety protocol.

– We have launched a txting capability as another way of communicating with Newtown Vet.  You can click on the link on our website to txt us.  Appointment confirmations will now be done via txt (for everyone with a cell phone on file).  Pictures and forms can now be sent via txt.  As always, you can also continue to call us if you prefer!

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we move ahead.  Please be kind to our staff, they are only trying to help!. 

We look forward to working together to care for your pets as we take this big step towards ”normal”!

Thank you,

The Doctors and Staff of Newtown Vet
