With all the uncertainty surrounding the coronavirus, rest assured that it’s still safe to bring your dogs to Applewood!
At the Pet Resort
Business will run as usual. All our employees have been trained to implement the new enhanced cleaning procedures and extra health-safety precautions as recommended by the CDC. We’re working hard to deep clean and disinfect frequently, paying close attention to high-traffic areas like door handles and counters.
To incorporate social distancing, we invite you to make the following changes during pick-up and drop-off:
- Call us from your car and we’ll come to retrieve your pet or bring your pet out to you.
- Provide us with payment over the phone from your car or allow us to use the card on file.
Thank you for your patience and understanding while we do our part to stop the spread of the virus.
As always, call us at 480-596-1190 if you have any questions or concerns.
At the Animal Hospital
Due to ongoing concerns about COVID-19, Applewood Animal Hospital is taking additional precautionary measures to help keep our clients, patients, hospital team and community safe while still providing the high quality medical care you have come to expect. These changes are based on recommendations by the CDC and the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA).
EFFECTIVE TUESDAY, MAR. 17, 2020:
Applewood will continue to provide care for your sick or injured pets needing medical treatment. However appointments for pets requiring routine care, including annual examinations, vaccinations and elective surgical procedures such as spays, neuters and routine dental procedures will not be made during this time. Should your pet need a routine procedure, please call our office so that your information can be put on a waiting list; this will insure your placement as soon as possible once these restrictions are lifted. While we are hopeful that these restrictions will last only until Apr. 1, obviously the situation is changing daily and we will continue until it is safe to resume our normal schedule.
As you know we have always provided a safe and clean environment for your pets, but we are taking additional cleaning and sanitizing measures for the safety of everyone who comes to Applewood. If, however, you prefer not to come into the building, whether it be for an appointment or to pick up medications or pet food, just call us from your car and a team member will come out and get your pet or deliver your items. You can also enjoy the convenience of having medications and prescription foods delivered directly to your door by ordering through our online store at VetSource.com
These are difficult times for everyone and we apologize for any inconvenience our restricted schedule may cause. We care deeply about you, your pets, and the community around us, and want to do everything we can to minimize the spread of this virus. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or if we can be of any assistance.

Applewood Animal Hospital will continue to treat pets needing medical attention! However as we attempt to limit potential exposure our front doors will be locked.

We remain dedicated to providing both the highest quality medical care for your pets and the exceptional client care you’ve come to expect. We appreciate your understanding and patience as we all work through this challenging time together.
