Regarding Covid-19

Dear Pet Parents,

As the Coronavirus (COVID-19) is an evolving topic for our clients, Forked River Animal Hospital has reviewed multiple health organization recommendations. First and foremost, we are monitoring and taking precautions to protect you and your pets during what the World Health Organization (WHO) has declared as a pandemic.

Hospital Procedure Changes

Please note: It is still the hospital’s policy to keep its clients and staff safe.

Due to the progress of COVID-19 and in an effort to follow New Jersey guidelines regarding COVID-19: our lobby is available to one pet owner at a time and masks are required, please follow the instructions below.

Below is important information on how curbside service at Forked River Animal Hospital works. 



Please call 609-971-7444 to verbally check-in for your scheduled appointment.


When you arrive for your appointment, you will need to call our office to let us know you have arrived. It will be your choice to come in or stay in your car. If you choose to come in, only ONE person will be allowed in with the pet and you MUST have a mask.


Clients will be invoiced directly from the exam room and given their pet’s prescriptions and discharge instructions.


Please utilize our drive-through pharmacy for prescription refills, we ask that you do not come into the hospital if you are only picking up medicine.
