COVID-19 and Pets

COVID-19 Update - 3/20/2020


Dear Valued Clients & Community Members,

Re: Social distancing & Virtual Care

Please remain in your car and call 630-627-7090 upon arrival at our parking lot.

Lombard Veterinary Hospital remains committed to providing a safe and healthy space for clients, pets, and staff during these challenging times. Veterinary care is considered an ESSENTIAL service in Illinois and across the country, and our hospital will remain open during the statewide shelter in place order that was issued today.  To best protect our clients and team, effective immediately, we are limiting clients from entering our building, except for very special circumstances to be determined on a case by case basis. Also, we request if you or a family member is sick that you make arrangements for your pet to be transported to LVH by a healthy person if your pet needs care at the hospital.

We have already implemented “curb-side” and “drop-off service” and it is working smoothly.  We appreciate your cooperation as we do all we can to continue to serve you and your beloved pets while minimizing close human contact. Should your pet have an appointment at LVH or if you need to pick up food or medication, please call us at 630-627-7090 from your car when you get to our parking lot, and a member of our team will provide further instructions.
