At Platte Woods Animal Hospital, the health and safety of our clients and staff are our top priorities. In response to trying to reduce the spread of COVID-19 virus, a mask is required when entering the building. To help us all keep a safe distance from each other we have shut down our two small exam rooms, but will continue to utilize our three large ones. We also ask that if you are experiencing any symptoms of COVID or if you or anyone in your household has been diagnosed with COVID that you please re-schedule your appointment for another time. If you are high risk, or uncomfortable coming in for your pets appointment, please call the office at 816-741-8600 so that we may accommodate your needs.
We will continue to follow the CDC recommendations, as well as the requirements for Kansas City and will update our policies accordingly.
Thank you for your patience and understanding and please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
The staff at Platte Woods Animal Hospital
