Yorkson Creek Veterinary Clinic  has remained open during this pandemic, as it was deemed an essential service.

In order to keep their both their human and pet clients and staff safe, Yorkson Creek Veterinary Clinic, has refrained from allowing the public into the hospital. During this time, the clinic has been taking client histories and providing physical exam findings and care plans over the phone.

Thankfully there has been no transmission between dogs and cats and people of COVID. Our feline and canine companions are not a risk to us. Doctors of Veterinary Medicine (DVMs) are deemed essential as they play an important role in keeping the public safe from zoonotic diseases such as Rabies, Ringworm and other skin parasites, certain intestinal parasites. Diseases that can have devastating effects on people that acquire them.
