On behalf of the entire Kindness Animal Hospital team, we want to affirm our commitment to supporting the health and safety of you, your families, our employees, and your beloved pet. Our goal is to implement, per CDC guidelines, appropriate social distancing so that we may attend to the health of your pets as safely as possible. Therefore, we will implement changes to our appointments effective Monday, March 16. For those with scheduled appointments please anticipate the following:
We kindly ask all owners with appointments to wait in their car in with their pet.
One of our wonderful veterinary technicians will come out to the car to greet your pet.
The technician will collect intake data and all relevant information from you to communicate to the Veterinarian.
Dr. Rosenblatt, Dr. Hallisey, Dr. Ortolani, or Dr. Jarbeau will return with your pet to answer your questions and discuss your pet’s case from a distance of 6 feet per CDC guidelines.
We ask for your patience while we discern how we can best meet your pet’s medical needs while still maintaining safety standards for all involved. This is a work in progress, and given the rapidly evolving situation, we will update protocols as necessary. Please be assured the health of your pet, you, your family and all our staff are of the utmost importance to us. We greatly appreciate your trust in us and are thankful you choose to be part of the Kindness community. Sincerely, The Team at Kindness Animal Hospital

We Have Everything Your Pet Needs.
We strive to offer compassionate state of the art care to your feline, canine and exotic family members.
Our online pharmacy offers competitively priced prescription medications, food, and flea/tick preventatives.
If you are sick, stay away from animals.
Keep your animals away from other people or animals. Social distancing applies to the whole household, not just the human members.
Your own pet poses virtually no risk to you. If my cat is infected, he got it from me (in which case I’m already infected) or my family (who pose a much greater risk of transmission to me than the cat). If we keep pets with us but socially distanced from others, we don’t need to worry about them as sources of infection outside of the household.
