Our Hospital is Open With Precautions in Place to Keep You & Your Pets Safe

To our valued clients,

Thank you all for your understanding and cooperation during these difficult times. Our policies and procedures are changing daily, and we wanted to keep you informed what is going on in our hospital.

Currently we are open, and are considered an Essential Business.

With that being said we are here for ESSENTIAL services only.  Examples of essential services include but are not limited to: non-elective surgeries, sick or injured appointments, puppy/kitten vaccinations, follow up appointments for surgeries, and quality of life/end of life appointments.

The following are services considered Non-Essential: annual wellness or vaccination appointments for healthy adult pets, elective procedures, nail trims/grooming, and travel certificate appointments. 

Appointment Procedures

Our lobby is currently closed, meaning we will not be allowing the public to convene there. Our policy is that you must wait in your car upon arrival and call us at (631) 887-3501. Once we have an exam room available you and your pet will be escorted in.

Payment will be collected in the room; we are NOT taking cash payments at the time. We will be excepting all major credit cards, ApplePay, CareCredit and Scratchpay. We apologize for any inconvenience in advance. 

Upon conclusion of your appointment you will be escorted out of the building. If you wish to stay in your car during your pet’s appointment, just let us know and we will accommodate your request (we may be making this mandatory in the days ahead). If you need to pick up medications or food, simply call us from your car. We will have someone deliver it to you.

We are currently signing up for a telemedicine app called Televet and will send out information as soon as it is available to us. Be assured that we are here for you and your pet’s needs.

Please remember to stay safe and well.

Fondly,
The staff and doctors at Shinnecock Animal Hospital
