Mask Mandate

Due to the surge of covid-19 and covid-19 delta variant cases within our area the Jonesboro Family Pet Hospital has decided to return to requiring masks and temperature checks upon entering the facility, regardless of if you have been vaccinated. Our lobby will still be open and we will only allow four family groups in the lobby at a time. Please respect our decision to keep you and our staff safe during these uncertain times. Thank you and stay safe!

-COVID-19 NOTICE-

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.


We are still learning about the virus that causes COVID-19.  A small number of pets worldwide, including cats and dogs, have been reported to be infected with the virus that causes COVID-19, mostly after close contact with people with COVID-19.

To protect pets from the virus:

-Pet owners and every eligible person in the household should get vaccinated.-People with COVID-19 should not have contact with pets.-Pet owners should not allow pets to have contact with unvaccinated people outside the household, if possible.-When possible, have another member of your household care for your pets while you are sick.-Avoid contact with your pet including petting, snuggling, being kissed or licked, sharing food, and sleeping in the same bed.-If you must care for your pet or be around animals while you have COVID-19, wear a mask and wash your hands before and after you interact with them.

Based on the available information to date, the risk of animals spreading COVID-19 to people is considered to be LOW. Do not put masks on pets; masks could harm your pet.  There is no evidence that the virus can spread to people from the skin, fur, or hair of pets. Do not wipe or bathe your pet with chemical disinfectants, alcohol, hydrogen peroxide, or other products, such as hand sanitizer, counter-cleaning wipes, or other industrial or surface cleaners. Beyond the vaccine, make sure to follow good hygiene. Wash your hands often and correctly. Use a proper hand sanitizer often.  Wear a mask indoors or in social gatherings where you can’t maintain proper distancing.  Make sure the mask covers your nose and mouth, not just your mouth.   Sneeze or cough into your elbow.
