I had to take my dog to the vet for an annual vaccine and I actually had gotten emailed that she needed it a month ago when quarantine started. I waited out of nerves, but the way vets are handling services just goes to show that no matter what happens in the world, there's no excuse to ignore your pet's health.

Of course when it comes to priority, there are some things that can wait until life gets a little more normal. Local vets say that pets who need care the most receive the first priority. But if you're pet needs an annual visit or vaccine, you should still call and check if you should come in.

WTVO details just how you take your pet to the vet during the COVID pandemic -

Now when you take your furry family member to the vet, you can’t go into the facility. You wait in the car and call them to let them know you you are there. The technician will come get your pet. Pet owners we talked to say the process has been simple.

Vets also say that the county is being understanding and won’t fine individuals who aren’t currently able to keep their animals up to date on their shots.

So don't forget while you're looking out for your own health to remember your furry family member.
