Hospital Operating Status and COVID-19 Information

In an effort to ensure a safe environment for all animal owners, visitors and OPVMC team members, we ask that you please avoid visiting our hospital if you are currently experiencing flu-like symptoms, including a fever and a cough, or if you or someone you have been in contact with have travelled to an affected area within the last 14 days.

We are open 24/7 to provide care for your companions.

We continue to see patients for (1) medical emergencies (2) urgent referrals and (3) limited appointments based on your pet's individual needs and current mandated guidelines. Please call to discuss these services.

If you are ill or have been potentially exposed to Covid-19 and have a veterinary emergency, please try to find a healthy friend or family member to accompany your pet to the hospital. If you cannot find someone to bring your animal to the hospital, please call ahead and inform us of your pet's issues and your health status at 716-662-6660. If you have a pet that has been examined at our hospital in the past year and would like to set up a telemedicine appointment for an issue please visit the telemedicine page.

With regard to bringing your pet to the OPVMC we are now offering Curbside Appointments for non-emergencies. Once you arrive at our facility please park in one of the numbered parking spaces and call us to check in. We ask that you stay in your vehicle while we examine and treat your pet.

Please be assured, within our hospital, we are conducting frequent cleanings and using appropriate disinfectants to help protect our hospital environment. Our clinicians and staff continue to practice safe hand hygiene, with clinical teams also wearing personal protective equipment as warranted. We are paying increased attention to social distancing and ask that you do the same during your visit.

We ask all visitors to our hospital to please practice preventive measures such as hand washing/sanitizing and covering coughs/sneezes using your sleeves or a disposable tissue. Together we will help ensure everyone’s personal safety.

We thank you for your understanding, patience and cooperation. Your help is greatly needed to ensure our hospitals remain operational during this time.
