Welcome to Hudson Road Animal Hospital!

As of 7/13/2020

Thank you to all your support and patience as our hospital has continued to navigate the COVID-19 Pandemic. Since May we have started re-opening our core services in a gradual step-wise fashion.

  • The grooming salon opened May 4th.
  • Elective Surgeries resumed May 11th.
  • Boarding services resumed on May 18th with rules and restrictions in place regarding pet's food/medications/belongings in-hospital.

As long as COVID-19 numbers improve in Minnesota, we plan on allowing re-entry of pet parents into our building. This will be a very gradual process with increasing levels of interaction with our team over time. Our primary objective throughout this pandemic has been the safety of our team, clients and our patients. Our current workflow and protocols have kept our team healthy and our business operational.

We will not return to "normal," rather a new normal to ensure everyone's safety and the safety of business operations. When we begin this transition, it will be paramount that you avoid visiting our office if any of the following are true:

  • You have recently traveled in the last two weeks,
  • You have COVID-19,
  • You or someone you know has been exposed to COVID-19,
  • Or, if you are in quarantine yourself.

If any of the above statements are true, please contact our office to speak to a team member. Depending on your pet's history with us, we may provide alternative options to help you and your pet.

We appreciate all of your understanding throughout this process and are looking forward to seeing you all again. Please contact our office with any questions or concerns you may have, we are always happy to help,

Effective as of 3/27/2020

Dear Friends,

Yesterday, Governor Tim Walz declared a state wide stay at home order which is effective Friday 3/27/2020 11:59 PM to Friday 4/10/2020 11:59 PM.

We have been monitoring and adapting to all the federal and state regulations over these last couple weeks. During this time our operating protocols have changed dramatically while the quality of our veterinary medicine has remained the same.

Now more than ever we need to embrace the efforts to slow this rapidly spreading disease. As a result of this pandemic and the executive orders, we have made changes to our following services:

  • There will be no boarding until further notice.
  • There will be no elective surgical procedures until further notice.
  • There will be no grooming appointments during the duration of the stay at home order.
  • We have limited our appointment schedule to doctor visits only, which means nail trims and anal gland appointments will have to wait unless there is medical reason otherwise.

We are still continuing important preventative and wellness services for your pet as we see this as an integral component of disease prevention and public health protection.

Over the following week(s), we may change our operating hours to ensure we have adequate team members to help you and your pet.

We have asked and continue to ask anyone visiting the office to stay at home if:

  • You have recently traveled in the last two weeks,
  • You or someone you know has been exposed to COVID-19,
  • Or, if you are in quarantine yourself.
  • If you fall into any of these unfortunate categories, please contact our office to speak to a team member. Depending on your pet's history with us, we may provide alternative options to help your pet without a visit to our office.

We appreciate all of our friends and supporters that have stood by us during these hard times. We truly miss seeing all of you and we are looking forward to the day when we can see you again. Please contact our office with any questions or concerns you may have, we are always happy to help,

These are unprecedented times calling for unprecedented measures to help slow the transmission of COVID-19 in our community. As veterinarians it is our job to ensure that not only your pets are healthy and safe, but that we help protect the public health as well.

Throughout the development of this pandemic, we have changed our operating protocols to minimize time spent in our lobby and interactions between people in our building. As this situation continues to unfold and to observe the best level of social distancing, we have decided to limit access to our hospital to employees only. Rest assured we are still open and ready to care for your pet for whatever they need.

To help you understand our process better, please refer to the following plan we have in place. It is our objective to continue to provide excellent quality care for you and your pet while helping maintain safe distances to keep you and our team healthy.

    We will keep our front door locked with this plan in full view:

    1. When scheduling or confirming your appointment, our client service team members will advise you to remain in your car upon arrival to our hospital.

    2. When you have arrived, please call our office and a team member will come to your car to escort your pet into the hospital.

    3. All dogs must be on leash and cats in carriers.

    4. Once in the building a team member will contact you to get some history on how your pet is doing at home, what you would like done today, and collect any questions you might have.

    5. During this time we will bring your pet to an examination room where the doctor will perform an examination. The doctor will then contact you regarding the examination findings, recommendations, and any perceived follow-up care.

    6. After your pet's visit is complete, a client services representative will contact you to help facilitate payment for any services your pet received.

    7. Finally, a team member will escort your pet back to the car.

If you are coming to our office to pick up a prescription or food, please stay in your car and a team member can bring these items out to you.

In certain situations, such as euthanasia, you may be allowed access to the building by a team member and we would immediately bring you to an examination room to minimize time spent in our lobby.

All of our efforts here at Hudson Road Animal Hospital have been to protect you and to protect our team from the spread of COVID-19. We consider veterinarians essential to pet health and public health and we will continue to serve you and your pet with the same level of quality and compassion as always.

Although we will miss seeing all of your friendly faces, we are optimistic that we will be through this crisis soon and will continue building long-lasting relationships with both you and your pet.

Please contact us if you have any questions about our plans, your pet, or concerns you may have,

Initial COVID-19 Precautions
Effective as of 3/16/2020

Dear pet friends and parents,

At Hudson Road Animal Hospital, the health and well-being of our patients, their owners and our employees is our top priority. We have been closely watching the evolving situation with COVID-19. During this time of uncertainty, we are making certain that you and your pet can receive the care they need to stay healthy and be safe in the process.

As cases of coronavirus started to increase in our state, we have reinforced our standard disinfection procedures with emphasis of touchpoints throughout our hospital. We have reviewed our sick leave policy with the team to ensure our team is healthy and protected in the event of illness.

We are following all state and federal guidelines in response to the COVID-19 spread. As the situation continues to develop we may make changes in our medical practice and case flow.

In the meantime, we ask that you refrain from coming to our hospital if you, or anyone with whom you have had close contact, has any of the following symptoms:

  • Sore throat
  • Coughing
  • Shortness of breath
  • Fever

We also ask that you do your best to practice social distancing both are our hospital and in the community. Additionally, please limit the number of people you bring to your pet's appointments.

If your pet has an emergency and you are sick, please let us know so that we can take steps to see you and your pet in a safe manner.

We appreciate your loyalty and we will keep you informed with any further changes at your pet's doctor's office,

Your friends at Hudson Road Animal Hospital
