To our Clients;
The staff here at the Forest Lake Veterinary Hospital have been working hard through this pandemic to safely provide the care our patients need. We will continue to provide necessary care with our patient, client and staff safety as high priority while businesses re-open and people start to interact more.
We will need your help and consideration to keep everyone safe over the coming months.
Much of the work we do with our patients and clients now is happening over the phone. We are experiencing very high call volumes and we may not be able to answer your call right away, or your call may not go through the first time. Please leave a message,and we will get back to you. If you are at the clinic and are checking in, or picking up an order, you can notify us by text if you can not call through. The number to text is: 651-321-8309
We are working to improve our call capacity, but these upgrades will take time.
Staff members will be wearing masks when they speak with you in person. We are not generally allowing clients into the building. In special situations like euthanasia, we may permit clients to accompany their pets inside. We ask that any owners entering the clinic wear a mask to help protect our staff. When making any appointment or scheduling product pick up, please let the staff member know right away if you or anyone in your household has a cough or feels ill so that we can take the appropriate precautions to provide care safely
The clinic has staff members that are currently unable to return to their normal work schedule due to issues brought about by the Covid 19 crisis. Due to the decreased number of staff we are unable to provide all of the normal services at the same capacity that we could prior to March of this year. Appointments may need to be cancelled or rescheduled pending any staff changes going forward. We apologize for the inconvenience this brings for our clients and will continue to post updates as things change.
Your patience is greatly appreciated as we adjust to these challenging times.

Our pets are important members of our families.

We consider your involvement in your pet’s health an essential and critical component of maintaining his or her health.
We feature the latest technology for the diagnosis and treatment of small animals, including on-site blood chemistry analysis, blood count analysis, digital x-ray, EKG and a complete surgical suite with isoflorane anesthesia and pulse oximeter. In addition to traditional medicine we also offer the latest in accupunture for our patients. On-site ultrasound and board certified surgeons are also available on an as needed basis.
