As we continue to navigate the COVID-19 daily changes, we first want to start by thanking all of you for your continued support of our business during these times. We are all doing our best to stay safe and healthy for not only ourselves, our staff, and our clients but our entire community.

Since the Stay-at-home order has been lifted, we are returning to business as usual. This includes elective surgeries and grooming services. However, due to the ever-changing dynamic of the COVID-19 virus, we decided to move to curbside service and are not allowing entry into the building. At this time we will continue to adhere to the CDC guidelines of social distancing and continue with the curbside service.

In the interest of all of our clients and staff, the Town and Country Animal Hospital team requires that any clients who are exhibiting symptoms such as fever, cough, shortness of breath, or breathing difficulties refrain from coming to the facility and have a family member or friend bring their pet or reschedule the appointment entirely. 

As always, we appreciate your loyalty and understanding as we all do our best to keep each other safe! Thank you again and we hope to see you soon!!

Sincerely,
Karen Young DVM and all the staff at Town and Country Animal Hospital

Effective Immediately

To minimize client’s and staff member’s likelihood of exposure, we now offer curbside service for all appointments.

When you arrive at Town and Country Animal Hospital, please call 785-823-2217 and inform the staff of your name and pet’s name and what you are here for (an appointment vs. medication refill).  Please also let them know the best phone number to reach you at and the make/color of your car.

If your pet is in a carrier, please place the carrier on the ground and the staff member will take your pet into the clinic for treatment.
  • NOTE: If you have multiple questions please write them down so we can make sure to get them all answered.
