New COVID protocols

Starting May 1:

You will be allowed to come into the clinic for your pet's appointment if you would like. You will be escorted into the clinic and into the exam room. We prefer only 1 client come in with the pet but will allow 2 if absolutely necessary. We will not allow more than 2 separate clients in the building at one time. You will have to wear a mask at all times that you are in our facility, we ask that you please respect this policy and do not argue about it. If you do, you will be asked to leave and we will not service you.

We will still do surgery check ins in the parking lot and will not allow clients in to pick up pets, medication, or food. If you prepay on the phone for your supplies it makes it much quicker at pick up.

We appreciate your understanding and patience with this transition.

Please be patient with us, this is frustrating for all of us. The phones are busy, so we are not ignoring you. Our staff is working extremely hard to make this process as smooth as possible, but it definitely takes longer than normal so getting upset doesn't make things run any faster or smoother.

Thanks,

Salazar Road Veterinary Clinic

If you have an after-hours medical emergency call 575-770-3687.

Read What Our Clients Say

  • "When we moved to Taos, we returned to Arkansas once a year to take our dogs to our trusted Vet. When Dr. Kim Sides and the other two amazing vets created what is now Salazar Road Vet it was no longer necessary for us to go out of town for trusted care. Over the ten plus years of our association with Salazar, we have had some major "doggie" medical problems. We have lost a couple of wonderful old friends and have been blessed with the arrival of new pups. Through it all the whole family has benefited from their expert knowledge and loving care. The entire staff is incredible. They love and respect our pups as our family members. We can recommend Salazar Road Vet, the docs and the staff, without reservation and we thank them for all they have done for us."
    Bobbie S. and Bev T.
