We at Ridgewood Animal Hospital want to continue to provide optimal care while also helping to slow the spread of COVID-19. As a veterinary medical facility, we are considered an essential business to our community, so our office will remain open for our typical weekly operating hours (possibly reduced Saturday or Sunday hours).

​​​​​​​We are providing curbside service only and encouraging drop off appointments in order to comply with social distancing and to reduce lobby traffic. Please call us from the parking lot when you arrive, an assistant will greet you to admit your pet and discuss relevant history. The doctor will then come out to your vehicle or call to discuss their exam findings.
