UPDATE March 20, 2020 

During this current coronavirus (Covid 19) outbreak, we are modifying procedures for both your protection and that of our staff.  For the next few weeks we are implementing the following: 

  1. When you arrive at the clinic, please stay in your vehicle. Give us a call, and someone will come out to meet you.  Personal interaction outdoors represents lower risk of viral transmission than indoors with more confinement.
  2. Our plan is to focus on providing veterinary care for patients that have illnesses or conditions that need immediate attention.
  3. Routine wellness exams, rabies and distemper immunizations will be postponed to minimize traffic and exposure with the following exceptions: puppies and kittens will continue to be immunized until their vaccination plans are completed, animals that have never been vaccinated or are severely delinquent will be immunized.
  4. Elective surgeries such as spays and neuters will be delayed for the next few weeks until we can determine that necessary surgical supplies such as surgical gloves, masks, disinfectants, etc. will be in sufficient quantities that shortages won’t affect more life-threatening procedures that need the same supplies.
Hereford Veterinary Clinic in Hereford, Texas is a full service animal hospital. It is our commitment to provide quality veterinary care throughout the life of your companion animals and livestock. Our services and facilities are designed to assist in routine preventive care for young, healthy animals; early detection and treatment of disease as your animals age; and complete medical and surgical care as necessary during their lifetimes.

Our goal is to practice the highest quality medicine and surgery with compassion and an emphasis on client education.
