Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, veterinary practices have consistently been designated an essential healthcare business. However, as their work continues, veterinarians and their teams are working together to create protocols that protect the health and safety of team members and their clients. 

Dr. Dawn Sessions is a veterinarian at Broadway Veterinarian Hospital in Boise and joins Idaho Matters to talk about the new rules in place when it comes to getting care for your animal. 


As COVID-19 cases spread through the U.S. and Idaho, we’re committed to keeping you updated and informed. You can get updated info on cases, closures and how to stay healthy at any time on our Coronavirus news blog.
