Codornices Veterinary Clinic Update Regarding COVID-19

Dear Clients,

We have been closely monitoring the rapid progression of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. We all need to work together to “flatten the curve” and slow down the spread of this novel virus. In order to keep our staff, clients, and pets safe, we have updated our protocols.

We are no longer allowing clients to enter our hospital unless it is for euthanasia. We are taking this precaution to protect you as well as our staff. We thank you for your understanding and patience in this matter. Please read our updated protocol below:


– When you arrive for your appointment, stay in your car, and give us a call at 510-524-3062. Please arrive at least five minutes before your appointment time in order to accommodate for these precautions.

– A staff member will come and get your pet from your car. Please keep an eye on our front door so that the staff member can easily find you.

– Stay in your car while you await further communication from us. A doctor or technician will call you to get further information.

– After examining your pet, the doctor will call you to discuss findings and recommendations.

– Our staff will return your pet back to you when appropriate.

– A receptionist will check you out over the phone.

Again, thank you for your understanding during these difficult times. Our goal is to keep everyone safe while still providing excellent patient care.

Due to our current curbside policy to maintain social distancing, we have created these forms for you to fill out and email back to us prior to your pet’s exam.

Dr. Grant did an outstanding job of seeing my cat for possible complications from a visit to a different veterinary clinic. He made time to fit him into his full schedule, gave him thorough (and reasonably priced!) exam, spent about 10 minutes with me going over the results, including clarifying what the original diagnosis was. His recommendations have worked, and his office followed up with some helpful answers to my questions a day after the visit. Exceptional care!
