Coronavirus/COVID-19 Client Update:

Date: 6/25/2020

RE: COVID-19 Update

Dear valued clients,

To help stop the spread of COVID-19, Governor Jay Inslee and Secretary of Health John Wiesman, announced a statewide mandatory face covering order that will take effect Friday, June 26th. The order states that every Washingtonian in an indoor public space, or in an outside public space when unable to physically distance from others, will be legally required to wear a face covering. This will be important as more counties progress through the phased approach to re-opening.

King County is now in Phase 2 of the phased approach to re-opening. We are continuing to practice social distancing in addition to a safer appointment approach to keep you, your pets and our staff safe and healthy.

Our current protocol includes the following:

  • When you arrive for your appointment, call us from the parking lot to check-in and to receive further instructions
  • Wear a facial cloth covering whenever social distancing is not possible
  • Bring a credit card to pay by phone to limit exposure and expedite the check-out process
  • We are limiting one client in the lobby at a time so please plan for extended wait and check-in times.

Please call our office to coordinate prescription and retail pick-up. We are happy to answer any questions by phone. Thank you for your patience and understanding in advance.

Sincerely,

The Doctor’s and Staff

This is especially important as the state begins to gradually reopen and we work together to prevent outbreaks. With Washington’s Safe Start plan now in effect, we have begun scheduling routine appointments and procedures. We are continuing to practice social distancing in addition to a safer appointment approach to keep you, your pets and our staff safe and healthy.

  • When you arrive for your appointment, call us from the parking lot to check-in and to receive further instructions

Companion Animal Hospital is a full service veterinary hospital and dog day care located in the Crossroads area of Bellevue. We have been in business in this location since 1998, when Companion Animal Hospital merged with Crossroads Veterinary Clinic in a 10,000 square foot facility built just for our pet clinic.

We strive to practice preventive medicine in order to minimize the risk factors associated with many diseases. We believe the annual, and sometimes biannual exams, can be of greater importance than annual pet vaccinations given without an exam.

By practicing this premise, we are able to slow and possibly stop the progression of many different diseases. This approach to veterinary care allows your pet to live a longer, more comfortable life.

We have a number of resources for you to learn about how to take better care of your pets. Browse around and look at our various educational articles, blog posts, dog day care services and pet videos. The best veterinary care for animals is ongoing nutrition and preventive care. If you have a question please call (425) 746-1800 or fill out our contact form and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.

At Companion Animal Hospital, we treat your pets like the valued family members they are!

Our pet clinic offers a wide variety of veterinary services, including:
