COVID-19 Safety Protocols

The coronavirus (COVID-19) has created a number of challenges for all of our families, both personally and professionally. Our first priority is to keep you, your family, and your pets safe until this public health concern is stabilized. We appreciate your support and cooperation during this challenging time.

With the health and safety of our clients and staff in mind, we have returned to curbside-only service. Please call us at 802-863-2387 before you leave home so we can prepare for your arrival, then call again when you arrive. 

Caring for the Most Critical Patients First

Here at Burlington Emergency & Veterinary Specialists, we are experiencing a high demand for emergency veterinary services. Therefore, we have implemented the below triage priority levels to care for the most critically injured or ill pets first.

Medication Refills

We continue to request that prescription refills happen via phone. Please call us at 802-863-2387 and we can collect payment via a credit card over the phone. Refill requests may take 24-48 hours, so please plan ahead before you run out.

Precautions for Sick Humans

Rest assured that we have protocols in place to allow team members that feel ill to stay home and rest. We also ask that any pet owners that are ill to stay at home and have a healthy family member or friend bring an ill or injured animal to the hospital.

These are unprecedented and constantly changing times. Please be patient with us as we, like you, navigate through this uncharted territory. Call us anytime at 802-863-2387 if you have questions.

For emergencies, please call (802) 863-2387 before you come to our hospital to discuss your pet’s condition so we may advise you about the urgency of the problem. Click here to learn when your pet may require urgent care,

Due to the high numbers of critical patients in our hospital, we may need to advise you to seek care at another veterinary hospital and provide you with a list. There is a limit to the number of very ill patients our veterinarians and technicians can care for. We appreciate your patience and understanding during these challenging times.
