Dear Animal Health Center friends,

We are excited to announce that the time has finally arrived to gradually begin inviting clients back into the facility.

We ask our clients to understand that some staff members have health conditions that make them more susceptible to infirmities, others have had severe reactions to vaccinations and are not able to be vaccinated, and some staff have family members at high risk for illnesses. For these reasons, we have put considerable thought into welcoming you back in person.

Safety is our goal.

We will allow ONE family member into the building.

well-fitting mask will be mandatory for clients to enter the building.  Please cover your mouth and nose with your mask.

  • Please call (508) 660-9956 when you arrive at Animal Health Center to check-in.  When the appointment is about to begin, a staff member will meet you at the door and escort you into an exam room. 
  • Technician appointments, patient drop-offs, and those picking up medications/ supplies will still remain curbside. We will also continue to proceed with curbside services for anyone who has expressed this type of appointment preference.

If you are feeling at all unwell, please either:

  • Arrange for someone else to bring your pet in, or
  • If your pet is scheduled for a wellness visit and isn’t sick, please call us to reschedule your appointment. You won’t be penalized for canceling an appointment due to illness.

Animal Health Center has worked very hard these past few years to remain open and operational for our clients and patients.  Like so many in the veterinary profession, we have intermittently struggled with staff shortages which seriously impacts our ability to care for our patients especially given that emergency/24 hour care facilities continue to turn emergencies away.  

Thank you for your patience, understanding, and support.


Denise M. Trapani, DVM and the Animal Health Center Staff.
