Please be patient and bear with us as we all continue to make changes to comply with the changing directives from the CDC and WHO.  We care about you and your pet and want to be able to take care of your pet while keeping you safe and keep our team safe and healthy as well.
Thank you for your understanding and patience.

Non-clients will be seen when availability permits.

We will continue to post updates here and on our Facebook. Thank you to all of you. Stay safe.




     We are still open and here for our patients and clients. In order for us to continue taking care of you, we need to follow CDC guidelines and regulations carefully for both your safety and the safety of our staff. So that we may continue to follow CDC guidelines we are now using a contact-less thermometer to take our client's temperatures before they step out of the vehicle and limiting one person per pet inside the facility. If your temperature is over 100.5 you will not be permitted to enter the hospital. We are lucky enough to still be able to serve you and your pets, let's keep it that way! Stay safe everyone!

     If you or someone you have been in contact with has shown any symptoms of illness, or have traveled in the past 14 days, we ask that you please reschedule your appointment if it is not medically necessary, or have someone healthy come in your place. Not only is this for other clients' safety, but ours as well. 

     In an attempt to reduce possible exposure of COVID-19, we can't have multiple people in the front lobby at one time. As of March 23rd, 2020, Jonesboro Family Pet Hospital will be kicking off a new curb-side service. This includes:
1. Preparing a room for you before entering the clinic in order to bypass waiting in the lobby completely.
2. Bringing pets out to your car if they were admitted in the morning.
3. Delivering products straight to your car.
4. Taking all payments over the phone unless it is a cash transaction, which we ask you only do if it is your only option.

     When you visit our clinic, call us when you have parked in our parking lot and inform us why you are here. Simply follow your receptionist's directions from there! 

     We are fortunate enough to still be able to service you and your furry family members. Please keep in mind that our staff is now taking more precautions, which may lengthen wait time for our new curb-side services and/or doctor services. We will continue to strive to do our best, but at the moment, everyone's safety is our first priority. 

     Please keep up with us over on our Facebook, new emails, and our website. Call us at 870-932-7228 for any further questions.

     We thank you for being with us during such a time like this. Jonesboro Family Pet Hospital is still standing, and that's with you.
