Welcome to Yelm Veterinary Hospital!


coronavirus

We are OPEN!

We’d like to share some information about our newest response to COVID-19, and adjustments will be put into place effective as of March 24th, 2020: The measures we are currently taking will be adjusted as needed; 

Update as of April 30th, 2020

While we constantly strive to be available to serve you and your pets, unfortunately, due to staff shortages we will now be closed on Sundays in May. We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause. We expect this to be temporary and will keep you updated with any future changes. Thank you for your understanding and patience during these challenging times.

Please read the following as some of our services may have temporarily changed.

We will be postponing all elective procedures not deemed urgently medically necessary in an attempt to maintain the necessary quarantine policies and limit exposure to our clients. Some procedures that have been postponed include; nail trims, anal gland expressions, elective surgeries (spays, neuters, dental cleanings, etc.) and more upon the discretion of our veterinarians. If you have any questions regarding services we will continue to offer please reach out and call or send a quick email to info@yelmdvm.com. We are happy to answer any questions you have as best we can.

Please check out our online pharmacy! This is an option that will allow for home delivery while still supporting your local businesses. We can even email you a direct prescription request to save you some time, just let us know what you need!

What exactly is curbside concierge might you ask? It is a newly developed service we are now introducing. Our hospital will remain closed to the public and we ask you stay in your vehicle throughout the duration of being at our hospital. Give us a call to let us know you are here and identify your vehicle, and we will have one of our designated employees direct you on how we will proceed. For appointments and walk ins, we will come outside to grab your pet. We will take care of the rest, all while you wait in the comfort of your vehicle!

We hope that you stay safe and healthy. We are so grateful for your patience as we adjust our protocols and policies for the safety of you and our staff. Do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or concerns.

More information can be found on our Announcements Page.

Thank you!

Our Hospital first opened its doors on a plot of land, with a single-wide & a dream. The dream the original owners/doctors (now retired) built is still with us today. We are a "Patient Comes First" Practice, with availability everyday of the week, evenings, and weekends, with emergency triage - because disaster never strikes when you're ready! If you feel you have a Pet Emergency, call our office right away - someone will be able to guide to your next steps.

We are here for the whole family, because we love pets and their people too!
