Update 3/18/2020:

Ashland Veterinary Hospital  remains committed to continuing to provide the highest quality veterinary medicine during the COVID-19/Corona virus global pandemic. However, in light of the rapidly increasing changes in regards to the COVID-19/Corona virus, we are making changes to the way we offer patient care. We are committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for our staff and all of our clients and to reduce the transmission of the virus throughout our community. Please be aware as schools and day care facilities are closing we, unfortunately may be running with a smaller staff and ask for your patience. We appreciate your flexibility if we take longer to refill prescriptions, if we need to change your appointment, or if we take longer to get your pets to you than normal!

Currently , AVH remains open and operating under regular business hours. In the interest of our clients and staff, we are asking that clients remain in the car when you arrive at  AVH and call us (804-798-8169) from the parking lot. We will have an assistant get your pets history over the phone, they will bring your pet into the hospital while you wait in your car, the doctor will do a physical and then call you to discuss exam findings over the phone and the next step (just like a normal appointment except everything will be discussed over the phone instead of in the exam room).  We recommend paying over the phone by credit card, but we will still be taking cash and checks as well. Please make sure your cats are in carriers and dogs are on leashes so that we can safely bring them inside. We are still offering drop off appointments at this time!

If you are picking up prescription food or medications, we ask that you please give us AT LEAST 24 HOURS notice to fill and have them ready for you. Once your order is ready, we will be calling you over the phone with credit card for food/ medication orders, then one of our staff will bring your receipt and the items out to your car for you!

We are actively monitoring the CDC and American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) websites and will continue to update the information on our Facebook page and website frequently.

AVH thanks you so much for your patience and understanding during this time! We appreciate your continued business and ask that you continue to support other small business as best you can!
