Veterinarian services continue during pandemic with some changes

ONALASKA, Wis. (WKBT)- Local veterinarians will still see your pet during the pandemic, but there are some changes you should be aware of.

Like most clinics, Central Animal Hospital in Onalaska is asking clients to postpone non-essential procedures and check-ups for healthy pets.

They are continuing to do emergency procedures and others that are considered essential to maintain a pet’s health.

They’ve also locked their lobby to minimize contact with different groups of people.

“If people are more comfortable staying the car, we’ll meet them car side, take their patient in, talk with them via phone or send an assistant out to talk with them,” said Central Animal Hospital Veterinarian Douglas Kratt.

Central Animal Hospital also offers a telehealth option, which allows them to communicate with clients over an app instead of in-person.
