In accordance with CDC recommendations to practice social distancing, Avets is taking steps to slow virus spread and protect the health of our families and yours. The following temporary changes are effective immediately at our hospital:

⚠️ No clients will be allowed into the hospital until further notice. If you have an emergency, please call the hospital when you arrive (412-373-4200), and a staff member will meet you in the parking lot. Your pet will be taken into the hospital for assessment. Once a doctor has assessed your pet, we will communicate with you by phone to make diagnostic and treatment recommendations and to collect payments. When your pet is ready to go home, a team member will bring your pet and any medications out to your car for discharge.

-For established patients with upcoming rechecks, a team member will be in contact with you before your scheduled appointment.

-For new clients seeking specialty referral, please be aware that patients with chronic or stable conditions or those seeking elective procedures may be asked to delay their appointment until a later date.

-If you believe your pet has an emergency, please call ahead before coming. We may be able to help you determine if emergency care is necessary or if your pet can wait to be seen by your primary care veterinarian.

-If you are a veterinarian referring a case for specialty or intensive care, please call the hospital to speak directly to the corresponding specialist so that we can work together to prioritize urgent cases.

We know that emergencies happen and that having an ill or injured pet is stressful. Caring for our critically ill pets is an essential service and we have no plans to stop providing emergency care. Please bear with us as some of the temporary changes made in response to COVID-19 may have impacts on efficiency and will be a departure from what those of you who have been here before are used to. We appreciate your patience!
