We are experiencing a high volume of calls. For non-emergency questions and refills on food/medication please email us at doc@kah.com

Our goal here is to help stop the spread of the current viral disease outbreak in our community so that we may stay open to provide for all of our pets’ needs.

If our doctors and team get sick, we will not be able to care for your pets in times of emergency.We are going to change to the following protocols, but these may evolve and change over the coming days.

To better support our team members during the COVID-19 pandemic, while also continuing to meet the needs of clients and their pets, Kingsbury is adjusting our operating hours. Beginning immediately:

  • Appointments will be curbside only for both medical and grooming clients.
  • Please call us upon your arrival (314-721-6251), and we will send a team member to retrieve your pet from your car and/or to bring you your medication or food items.

FAQs

 

Can my pet catch or carry COVID-19?

 This is a rapidly evolving situation for information please refer the the CDC's website for COVID-19 and Animals

 

What is Kingsbury doing to help stop the spread of COVID-19?

 

The health and safety of both our staff and clients is of the highest importance to us, and we’re working hard to ensure that we have taken every precaution to keep our hospitals a safe environment for everyone who comes through. Following CDC protocols, our facilities and maintenance teams are helping us with increased and thorough cleaning protocols throughout the hospital, and we’re making sure our employees are able to stay home if they’re not feeling well. We encourage everyone to practice good hygiene (such as washing your hands frequently) at all times of the year, but especially now. Currently our hospitals are "no-handshake" zones, so please do not be alarmed if your doctor does not greet you with a handshake at your visit. We are also not currently accepting personal belongings (blankets, toys, etc) for pets that will be staying in-hospital. 

 

What happens if the Kingsburystaff are affected by COVID-19?

 

While we're hopeful that we will all make it through the next few months with minimal impact from COVID-19, we are prepared and have protocols in place in case things start to look more serious. If any changes to availability occur, we will promptly notify our clients and update this website.

 

Thank you for helping us work through these changes.
