Welcome to Animal Hospital of Worthington! We try to make every visit a pleasant one from the moment you walk in the door until you head home with your pet. Check out the pictures of our facility below, or feel free to stop by and take a tour during normal business hours.
Animal Hospital Policies
To allow ample time for all patients and scheduled surgical procedures, we operate primarily by appointment. Emergency cases shall always receive top priority, which is why occasional appointment delays are inevitable. Please realize that we make a sincere attempt to see each client on time. It is possible that you may be asked to reschedule if you are more than 15 minutes late for your pet's appointment.
For your convenience, day admit appointments are available. A 'day admit' means you could bring your pet at the time that works best for you and leave him / her with us for a couple of hours. Usually we will ask you to 'drop off' sometime in the morning so our doctors can examine the patient in between appointments or at the time purposely reserved for admitted patients. Once the doctor is done, he or she will give you a call to go over the diagnosis and to give you discharge instructions.
Even though we make every effort to make our patients feel comfortable during visits, they may be a little uneasy about new people, new surroundings and other pets. This is one of the reasons we ask you to restrain your pet. We require that animals be placed on a leash or in pet carriers before entering the waiting room.
The Animal Hospital of Worthington will be happy to fill your pet's prescription given there is a valid doctor-client-pet relationship, which means we need to have seen your pet and done a physical exam within the year, and in some cases the past 1 to 3 months. This also applies to written prescriptions which can be picked up while you and your pet are in the office.
There is no charge for this service since the doctor has examined your pet, reviewed his/her records and determined the need for the drug. You may fill prescription requests with our hospital by calling the office 24 hours in advance. If you have any questions regarding our policy please contact us at 614-468-3438.
* We do not fill prescriptions via FAX requests. If you prefer to deal with an internet pharmacy, be aware that there can be risks associated with the product's origin and handling, and the manufacturer may not guarantee the product.
