COVID-19 Announcement

Update (3/27/2020)

We are still open! However, effective March 26th, 2020, we are transitioning to concierge-only services at Midtown VMC.

Only staff and pets will be allowed into the hospital. This is in accordance with CDC recommendations to minimize direct contact and keep our hospital virus-free. Making these changes now will allow us to remain open to continue care for your pet and also allow for enhanced safety for staff and clients alike.

When you arrive in the parking lot for your appointment please call 970-305-5522 By phone, a team member will get a history of your concerns, then will come to your car to retrieve your pet.

After the exam, Dr. McCarthy will call you to discuss recommendations and we’ll make a plan together for appropriate treatments.

For prescription refills, please call for refills as usual. We will get them filled as soon as we can and collect payment over the phone. When you arrive to pick up, we will bring your medications to you in your vehicle. Kind of like Sonic, but not as yummy!

Please check regularly here and on our Facebook page for regular updates as we all navigate this strange time together.

Coming soon:
A real-time telemedicine option allowing you to remain at home and still receive pet care, for appropriate cases.

Thank you for your continued patience and understanding. Stay safe!
Midtown Veterinary Medical Center Team

To Our Valued Clients:

First and foremost, we would like to assure you that we will remain open until the government says otherwise. In the veterinary industry, we are used to infectious disease protocol – because we deal with it every day.

We have always paid close attention to the cleanliness of our facility, and now we are taking extra precautions to ensure the health & safety of every client and team member that walks through our doors. Frequently touched surfaces are regularly cleaned, and our team members are wearing masks and gloves to further minimize risk of contamination.

As government protocols recommend, we encourage clients over 65 as well as those at risk of infection remain at home and not come into the clinic. We also ask that any clients who have a fever or are showing other signs of sickness REMAIN AT HOME. If you are at risk, or simply prefer to avoid contact but need to bring your pet in, we are happy to come out to your car to pick up your pet.

Please do not postpone essential care (including urgent exams, food or prescription refills, etc.) for your pet out of fear. We are happy to discuss symptoms and questions with you over the phone to determine your pet’s needs and ensure they receive the care they need.

For further information regarding COVID-19 and your pet, we suggest the AVMA COVID-19 FAQs for Pet Owners: https://www.avma.org/sites/default/files/2020-03/covid-19-faq-pet-owners_031620.pdf.

Stay healthy & safe!

We are happy to help with any urgent pet needs, and any emergency care. Due to the pandemic, we are temporarily unable to perform elective services until further notice. Please contact us if you are unsure if your pet’s need is critical, and we will immediately assess the situation to determine if you should come to the hospital.
