Corona Virus Update #3: 4/1/2020

We would like to first take the time and thank everyone for being so understanding with our staff during this time. As things change by the week and even by the day, we appreciate everyone’s cooperation and understanding as we continue to call and reschedule many appointments.

It is expected that the Corona Virus will not slow down any time soon; they are thinking we will see a surge in numbers in the next 2-4 weeks. Due to this, we are going to have to continue rescheduling all non- essential appointments and surgeries. Our staff will be reaching out to those appointments coming up in the next couple of weeks so keep an eye out from a phone call or voicemail from us.

This also means we are not currently scheduling any new vaccine appointment for older dogs, nail trims, or boarding appointments. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused for people. We are still scheduling puppy and kitten vaccines, as well as Rabies vaccines.

With this said we are also going to continue to stay closed on Saturday’s. This is in effect for at least another two weeks. As always, we will continue to update everyone on Facebook and our website.

Thank you again,

The Staff at Bryan Area Animal Hospital


UPDATE: 3/24/2020

Due to the Corona virus outbreak, we have decided it is in the best interest to close on Saturdays. This is a temporary closure and will last for at least 2 weeks. We will continue to update, regarding our clinic's hours and policy's as decisions are made. We want to thank you all again for your understanding during this time, and apologize to anyone we may have to call regarding rescheduling appointments.

Thank you again, The Staff at Bryan Area Animal Hospital

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________NEW STARTING 3/21/2020

As communities begin to feel the impact of the corona virus (COVID-19), we want to share with you the steps we’re taking at Bryan Area Animal Hospital to help protect the health and safety of our customers and team members, which is always our top priority.

We’re closely monitoring local and national reports on the evolving impact of COVID-19 and, based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization and applicable public health agencies, to determine appropriate actions to take as necessary.

Our housekeeping and sanitization efforts in our clinic have been expanded. We’re frequently disinfecting often-touched surfaces such as door handles, countertops, etc. We are asking all of our team members (and we urge everyone) to follow the CDC guidelines to prevent the spread of the infection.

At this time, Bryan Area Animal Hospital will remain open for business during regular hours to meet the needs of our pet owners and their pets.  To maintain “social distancing,” we will be implementing curbside service. Simply call us when you arrive for your appointment, and one of our associates will come to the car to get your pet or bring you your pet’s medications.  Payment can be taken over the phone.

If you need supplies or prescriptions, please call ahead, and the staff can run the items out to your car. You may also order your own supplies by going to and click on the Online Store tab at the top of the page.  Once you complete the brief registration process you can have your supplies delivered!

Thank you for your continued support, patience, and for allowing us to help you take care of your furry family members!
