Twin Pines COVID-19 Prevention Plans:

We are all deeply concerned about protecting the health of our community at the same time that we recognize the need to be able to care for our pets. For that reason, we will do everything we can to promote social distancing and to increase all sanitizing procedures. We will continue to operate on a “curbside” basis to control human contact but will continue to be open for health issues, food, and prescription pick-up. You can also obtain necessary medications through our online pharmacy.

Our clinic team members will not come to work sick or if they have questionable exposure. We ask that you also consider our health in the same manner. We will do all we can to care for your pet, but we need to know if there is human exposure we need to consider. Please call ahead and discuss that with us. We also ask that the minimum number of people come in for the office visit. Please clean and sanitize your carriers and leashes.

Thank you,

Twin Pines Veterinary Clinic

Paws for Help

The Paws for Help Program is a fund supported by your donations.  It helps provide veterinary care to homeless animals and pets from families who cannot afford veterinary care.  We know that pets are family members and that owners do not want to give up on, abandon, or ignore a family member's dire medical needs.  Click HERE to learn about our Paws for Help Program, how it started, details on what it does, and success stories.
