Emergency Hospital

Dear Pet Owners,

It is the current intent of Shoals Area Veterinary Emergency P.C. to remain open for regular hours as our nation and communities move through the global issue of Coronavirus. It is a scary time for all, but we also realize that our services are essential for the wellbeing of pets, owners and public health. That said, we also intend to be part of the solution in limiting the spread of this, and any, virus. We are increasing our efforts of hygiene for our team and our facility and ask for your help in the following; If you are sick or fear you have been exposed and need to use our emergency services for your pet, please ask someone to bring your pet to us. While visiting our hospital please exercise restraint in contact and personal hygiene to the best of your ability. We are here for emergencies. A phone call to our hospital professionals prior to arrival can help determine the actual emergent level and, in some cases, could allow for delayed treatment thus limiting social contact. For additional information regarding Covid-19 as it relates to the veterinary profession visit .

SAVE Hospital COVID-19 Protocol

1. We are open! In order to maintain staff and clinic health, we have put the following protocols in place. Please take a moment to review them.

2. Call upon arrival/prior to entering the hospital if possible. We ask that only 1 person entire the hospital during the visit, due to our small space. We are happy to have a team member meet you at the car and bring your pet in for any evaluations or workups if you have concerns about entering the hospital. We will only allow clients to enter if there is an exam room available. You may be asked to wait in the car if exam rooms are full and if the pet is stable. We will triage accordingly and continue to provide the best quality of care!

3. If you have any respiratory symptoms, please have someone else bring your pet to the hospital. If a family member is sick, tested positive for COVID-19, or anyone in family has come into contact with someone testing positive for COVID-19 PLEASE TELL US IMMEDIATELY.  This allows SAVE staff to take protective measures while carrying for your pet.

4. If entering the hospital, please use hand sanitizer available at the front desk as soon as you enter the building. Maintain 6 ft between yourself and staff/other clients.
