technician will take a history over the phone, as we have been doing. Once we are ready to see your kitty, one adult will
be allowed into the clinic for the exam portion of the visit. We will
direct you immediately to an exam room and require you to remain
there until you are escorted out of the building at the end of the appointment. When you are invited
into the clinic we REQUIRE
you to wear a mask that covers your nose and mouth. Since space in
the exam rooms is limited we are not allowing children into the
clinic at this time. If you have to come with your kids, we will
require the entire appointment to remain curbside (as we've been

Animal Emergency Referral Center
The St. Paul location will be closed every night from 8pm to 8am, starting Sunday, April 11, 2021 until further notice. Staffing our hospitals adequately has been a concern since the beginning of the pandemic. The shift that is currently the most impacted is our overnight shift. To use these critical individuals most effectively, we are closing St. Paul overnights only - from 8pm to 8am. If any of you have overnight emergency concerns to go to AERC - Oakdale. Clients who call St. Paul's number will be connected to Oakdale automatically. If anyone goes to St. Paul overnight without calling first, there will have signage directing them to Oakdale. We will notify you when the St. Paul facility resumes its normal hours of operation.
