2021 Pandemic Plan Update

We at Seattle Veterinary Associates wish to thank you, our bonded pet parents, for your patience and understanding during the past 12 months.  This has been a very difficult year for all of our community, challenging each of us in so many different ways. Yet, through it all we have remained fully open, ready to serve you, and steadfast in our goals for personal safety in the face of an unprecedented pandemic.   It is our mission “to make the lives of the people and their pets we serve better” each and every day.  We feel so fortunate to have accomplished this purpose with minimal health impacts upon our working teams and you, our clientele.

Now, there appears to be significant hope for a return of more normal interactions in the manner of how we can provide veterinary care for your furry loved ones.  We can all see and feel it as the weeks go by and public and worker vaccinations steadily increase. The home stretch seems in view.

Accordingly, SVA is planning for changes later this spring that will allow for face to face visits again once our teams are fully immunized against Covid19.  This process has already begun and will proceed safely and smartly with a focus on maintaining appropriate social distancing and all coronavirus prevention measures presently embraced across Seattle communities and western Washington. 

We will continue to keep you updated with regards to how such changes will look and when they will actually arrive for our SVA clinics over the coming months.  We continue to ask that you remain patient and understanding during this process.  As much as you may wish to resume a more normal relationship with your pet’s veterinary health care team, we too look forward to welcoming you back inside!

Let’s work in unison towards that most rewarding and pleasant moment where our relationship with you and your pets can be better realized and enjoyed together, yet safely.  We are almost there.
