COVID-19 Updates & Changes

To Our Valued Clients,

Veterinary clinics are classified as essential businesses under the directive issued by Governor Bullock on March 26, 2020. Therefore, we will remain open and available during our regular business hours, which are Monday through Friday from 9am to 5pm. We will be closed on Wednesdays from 12-2pm for our weekly staff meeting.

Emergency Services

Our doctors have decided to take after hours emergency calls for the duration of this crisis. We are offering this service to help our community comply with the stay-at-home order and reduce travel outside of Livingston. If you have an after hours emergency, please call our office at (406) 333-7001 and press option 4 to be connected to the doctor on call. Please be respectful of this service and only contact our doctors after hours for emergency animal care that cannot wait until the following business day.

When You Arrive at the Clinic

In order for us to continue to operate in the best interest of public health and safety, we are asking that you call the clinic or ring the doorbell when you arrive at the clinic.

Please do not enter the building. If you are picking up food or medication, we will collect payment over the phone or provide you the total if you are writing a check. We will then deliver medications and/or food to your vehicle.

If you are bringing an animal to the clinic for an appointment, a technician or doctor will take a history over the phone before retrieving your pet from the parking lot. If you are able, please bring your dog out of your vehicle when we come to meet you in the parking lot. We have been following this process successfully for the last two weeks, and believe the animals are adapting well; some even seem more at ease during their visit. Once we have examined your animal, we will call to discuss any diagnostics and treatment plans and arrange payment before bringing your animal back to your car.

Thank you for your continued cooperation and understanding.

Dr. Trevor McCormick, DVM

To our valued clients and community:

With the uncertain and constantly changing circumstances regarding the Covid-19 outbreak and the current recommendations for social distancing and avoiding large gatherings, we are asking clients who are bringing animals in for an appointment to please let us know when you are here, and then wait in your car. A staff member will come outside to get your animal and will collect a brief history if indicated. We will then bring your animal into the clinic for a veterinarian to examine. The doctor will call you to ask any questions and discuss a treatment plan. Your animal will then be returned to your car with any necessary medications, food, or instructions.

If you need to pick up medications or food orders, we are still welcoming you into the clinic lobby to do so. Please feel free to call us ahead of time if you would like to pay with a credit card over the phone and have these items delivered to your vehicle.

Our primary goal is the care and wellbeing of our patients. During this time, we are also doing our best to make responsible decisions that are in the best interest of our community. We want to thank you again in advance for your patience as we navigate this unprecedented event.
