*Update* April, 3, 2020
Under Governor Kemp’s Executive Order issued on 4/2 and effective on 4/3, veterinarians are defined as being part of the “Critical Infrastructure”.
As a result of Governor Kemp’s order, Midway Animal Hospital WILL remain open to keep pets healthy and comfortable.
To ensure the safety and health of our staff and our community we feel it is of the upmost importance to follow government and veterinary leader’s recommendations as to what is an essential service that we offer. Because of this, some of our services will not be offered during the mandated Georgia Shelter in Place Executive Order.
We will continue to provide care for sick animals. We will also continue with wellness exams (when there are concerns and/or vaccines are needed), puppy/kitten vaccine appointments, and exams where a condition affects the comfort of the pet. Surgeries will be limited to emergency procedures or to relieve discomfort for a pet. Spays and neuters will be considered on a case by case basis. We will also continue to refill medications and prescription diets.
Wellness exams (where the pet is healthy and no vaccines are needed), grooming services, and kennel baths, will be postponed until the Executive Order has been removed.
We are committed to doing our part to slow down the spread of Coronavirus. We will continue with our enhanced cleaning protocols, curbside appointments and taking payments over the phone. We hope everyone remains healthy and safe. Please contact us if you have any questions or would like to discuss in more detail.

*Update* March 18, 2020
Due to COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and recent updates to national guidelines our hospital will ONLY be providing curbside service.
If you and your pet are here for an appointment, please call us from your car.
A history will be taken over the phone and a technician will bring your pet into the hospital as you wait in the comfort of your car.
After your pet is examined, a doctor will call you to discuss exam findings and recommended treatments.
Payment (credit cards and checks) will be taken at your car when your pet is returned.
- Our staff will only be allowed to use hospital leashes during this time.
- The only exclusions to the new policy are for extreme emergency cases and euthanasia. (At the discretion of the hospital)
If you need to pick up any medications or food, please call us and we will deliver it to your car.
If you or any of your family members at home have had a positive test for COVID-19 or over the last 72 hours have experienced fever, trouble breathing, coughing and/or sore throat, please call to make alternative arrangements.
These alternative arrangements include:
- Rescheduling any nonurgent appointments.
- Having someone else bring your pet to the appointment.
- If your pet is experiencing an urgent need, please call to discuss the appropriate protocol.
Please understand that we are taking the federal recommendations very seriously with hopes of protecting our clients, staff and community.
