COVID Protocol and Facial Covering Policy - Updated July 2021


As of July 2021, our Lobby is now open! We still require all pets to remain on leashes, or in a carrier, at all times while inside our clinic. We will still offer curbisde service for any pet if necessary. To ask for curbisde please call 425-396-7311 upon arrival and let our front desk know the make, model, and color of your vehicle. The assistant will then come out and take your pet into the clinic. After the examination, the doctor will either call you or come out to your vehicle to discuss all findings. We are very excited to have you all back! FACIAL COVERING POLICY: As of July 6th, Snoqualmie Ridge Veterinary Hospital will no longer require staff and clients to wear facial coverings if they have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19. If any clients or staff are not fully vaccinated, Snoqualmie Ridge Veterinary Hospital encourages all individuals to continue to follow CDC guidelines and wear an appropriate facial covering. If you would feel more comfortable for your appointment, we will be happy to put on a mask upon request!
