We will be continuing our curbside only service through the spring due to continued COVID virus issues.  We must keep ourselves safe so we can stay open and care for your pets.

We appreciate your understanding and patience in working with us during this time.

Procedures:

  • Call when you arrive for your appointment and we will come out and get your pet and bring him/her inside.
  • The doctor will call you after examining the patient so please have a working phone with you,
  • If you have a surgery appointment, the technician will come out and check your pet in at the car and then bring the pet inside.
  • If you are here to pick up food or medication, please call and let us know that you are out front.

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,

  • "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.
  • "Eleven dogs, eight cats and 24 years. Salazar Road Vet doctors have been our Veterinarians for all of the above. We rely on Salazar Road Vet to keep our pet healthy, happy and strong.

    These healthcare professionals are straight forward, honest and empathetic and highly skilled and have fostered a trusting bond with the pets and us.

    Of course, there is the routine health care, spay/neuter, annual check-ups, vaccines, tooth cleaning, toe nails, allergies. All these procedures are done flawlessly by the staff....."
