Update #7: 6/19/2020

We have decided it is in the best interest of the clinic to close again on Saturday’s starting June 27th. If you already had an appointment or pick-up schedule, we will hold the appointment and will be calling to confirm you still want to keep it on Saturday.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. This decision came out of respect to all of our animals, keeping in mind we want to give them the best treatment possible. We are currently short staffed and are seeking a solution actively.

Thank you again for all your patience and understanding. We will continue to allow one person per appointment in the building and using the intercom. Boarder drop-offs and pickups are still curbside as well as any product pick up’s.  Again, we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. 


UPDATE #6: 5/29/2020

Starting Friday June 12th, we will be returning to a modified schedule. Starting Saturday June 13th we will begin to open on Saturdays. We have many new policies as we transition into the next phase of reopening to the public in regards to Coronavirus.

  • 1)Please disclose you have any symptoms such as fever, shortness of breath, or GI upset.
  • 2)We will begin to allow people into the clinic again; our doors will still remain locked however. Anyone who enters the clinic MUST wear a mask, if you do not have one we will have one available for $10. If you are unable to wear a masks, we can accommodate you  by offering curbside service.
  • 3)We are going to continue curbside pickup for all product pickup and boarder check in’s.
  • 4)There will be lots of new signage posted, we ask that you please read and apply all requests on the signage posted in the clinic windows.
  • 5)In order to continue social distancing only 1 person will be allowed in the building per appointment. If you are unfortunate and have an appointment to euthanize your companion, you will be allowed only 2 people for the appointment. Again, masks MUST be worn at all times.

Again, we want to thank everyone for their continued cooperation during this time. Thank you for allowing us to continue to care for your beloved pets.  


UPDATE #5: 5/4/2020

As the state of Ohio begins to reopen and we continue to face the Coronavirus, we wanted to update you on how things are changing at the clinic. We are still doing curbside for at least another two weeks. This means you call in and let us know your pet is here, stay in the parking lot and we will get payment over the phone then bring your pet out when done. We are also going to continue to close on Saturdays through the month of May; we will readdress the situation at that time and determine if we can reopen on Saturdays in June.

In addition, we are now able to schedule elective appointments and surgeries. If you are needing vaccines, spay, or neuter. Give us a call and we will work out when we are able to get you an appointment. Our surgery days are still just Monday through Thursday.

Thank you for all your understanding and cooperation during this time of unknowns, we hope we will be functioning as normal soon. 


UPDATE #4: 4/7/2020

In addition to the recent update, we are adding Saturday April 25th to the weekend closure. This means April 11th, April 18, and April 25 we are closed. These are all Saturdays, we hope to reopen Saturdays soon but will continue to monitor the current situation and governor's orders.

Thank you all again for your patience and understanding.


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 #2: 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!
