We at Selah Veterinary Hospital are monitoring the COVID 19 issue very closely. Due to the seriousness of the current times, following are some new changes we are having to make to protect not only our staff, but our clients and patients as well.
General information - Selah Veterinary Hospital is you local, small town style veterinary hospital in Selah WA.
For clarity - we are not a walk-in type emergency veterinary clinic open to all. We operate like any other veterinary clinic - we have clients and patients established with us for care. Even though we are 'walk-in style' for our current clients and patients, we are not capable of seeing all pets from other veterinary clinics that are appointment based. We currently at this time are not accepting new clients.
Updated 10-19-2021 :
For an update - we continue to strive to do our best to provide you and your pets with the best care possible - while providing a safe environment to limit possible viral exposure between staff and all of our wonderful clients.
Yes - we are still open and here to help when and where we can. PLEASE EXPECT A WAIT IF WE ARE BUSY - THERE IS NO WAY AROUND IT !!! WAIT TIMES ARE LONGER AT TIMES!!! We will be losing Dr Patricia late 2021 as she will be leaving on a 3 year missionary work leave in Haiti.
*We will be closed November 25-27 for the Thanksgiving Holiday
*Starting in September - Selah Veterinary Hospital will have to start closing on Thursdays at 1:00PM due to losing another veterinarian - Dr. Patricia is preparing for a 3 year hiatus for missionary work in Haiti. We will be down another veterinarian - so wait times will likely increase.
How we are operating at this time....
On arrival - check-in will be in the lobby.
Masks or a face shield are required!!!! If you can not wear a mask or face shield, or you choose not to, you may not enter the building.
We are no longer using the number system due to bad attitudes and cheating - you are responsible for keeping your place in the check-in line.
If you can not or choose not to wear a mask or face shield, you must call to check in, you may NOT enter the building. You are responsible for knowing where you are in the check-in line, otherwise you will be placed at the back of the line. You will not enter when it is your pets turn to be seen. In these cases - your pet will be seen as curb-side service. Phones are not active until 9AM.
We are limiting the number of people in the lobby to 5-6 - THIS IS STRICT - as we have a few staff that can not get vaccinated for COVID due to immune issues.
Clients will continue to wait outside or in their vehicle - and will be called into an exam room when it is their turn.
The lobby will be open at 8AM - you may check-in at that time BUT surgical and dental appointments get first priority for check-in. Clients checking in for exam, etc will be asked to step aside and wait if there is a scheduled drop off, those will be done first.
We will be attempting to do check-out in the exam rooms.
For emergencies - pleased step forward in the lobby and a tech will triage your pet. If it is a true emergency, there is a $90 emergency fee if your pet is bypassing the 'first come, first served' line. We will NOT allow people to skip their turn just because they want to or are willing to pay the emergency fee, this is ONLY for emergencies.
If you are ill, or have any signs of fever or respiratory illness, or are on at-home quarantine - please do not come to the clinic. If your pet has an emergency, and you don't have someone else to help - let us know you are sick before we meet you. Again - please be respectful of our staff and other clients - IF YOU ARE SICK, PLEASE LET US KNOW ...
We thank you for your patience and cooperation during these difficult times. Prayers to all of our clients and patients to stay safe - Sincerely, The Selah Veterinary Staff
WELLNESS EXAMS & EMERGENT CARE
Regular exams help our veterinarians to monitor changes in your pet's health and gives us the opportunity to identify and manage any possible problems early on. We are equipped to handle most of your emergent needs.
Microchips are one of the easiest safety measures you can have done in case your pet happens to get lost or stolen. Microchips may also act as a very strong proof of ownership in such cases.
Vaccines are crucial to ensuring your pet - and you - are protected. We make vaccine decisions based on the latest science and your pet's risk profile to ensure adequate vaccination - but not too much.
From spays and neuters, to more complex abdominal or orthopedic procedures, our compassionate staff and skilled veterinarians work hard to ensure each pet gets the best of care possible - while being monitored with top-of-the-line anesthesia equipment.
Keeping your pet's teeth clean is not just about 'fresh breath'. It is key to preventing serious illness as well - such as periodontitis, bacterial infection, mouth pain, and heart disease.
Our in-house laboratory is equipped with the latest technology to give our veterinarians the answers to your pet's health concerns quickly. This includes blood screenings, complete blood counts, urinalysis, internal parasite screens, and more....
RADIOLOGY / ULTRASOUND
When your pet is sick or injured, we are equipped with top-of-the-line digital radiographs (x-rays) and ultrasound for quick images and quality care. Especially important in those instances where time is important in making quick medical decisions.
Selah Veterinary Hospital will guide you through the tough end-of-life decisions so your pet can be pain free, and pass with comfort and dignity. Whether through hospice care or humane euthanasia. We also offer remembrance services such as clay paw prints, and cremation.
