Dear Friends of Mohegan Lake Veterinary Hospital,


We are watching the development of COVID-19 closely and what it means for our pets and families. In an effort to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our community, we will be applying the practice of "social distancing" as follows:



*To minimize exposure in our waiting room, we will be spacing out appointments and extending the amount of time we allot for patient exams.


*For your safety and the safety of our staff, we are following the AVMA's recommendations and only providing "curbside" service:

     - When you arrive, call the hospital and to let us know you are here.

     - A member of our staff member will come to your car, take a detailed history, and bring your pet into the hospital where he/she will            be seen by the doctor.  The doctor and staff will speak with you over the phone, and we will bring your pet back to you at the end of the            appointment

     - Upon completion of the exam we will discharge your pet and you can pay via credit card over the phone. 


Medications and Food:

Picking up medications or food? Please call ahead to make sure we have your prescription in stock.  We ask you pay ahead of time.  When are ready for pick up, a staff member will gladly bring it to your car.


If You are Feeling Sick:

Please let our staff know of any potential exposure to COVID-19 or if you are feeling sick, coughing, fever, etc... before coming to our office so we can work with you to plan accordingly.


Ongoing Updates:

We will do our best to keep everyone updated as the situation continues to change.  In the event we have to close, we will notify all affected appointments.   We will update our outgoing voicemail message, website, Facebook and Instagram with changes.


Thank you for your cooperation and patience. We understand these are stressful/difficult times for all. We are striving to provide the same level of service while protecting our clients, staff members, and their families. We will utilize every effort to stay open to safely provide care to your pet. Please call or email us with any additional questions. Our email address is


Thank you,

Dr. Belvedere and the Mohegan Lake Veterinary Staff
