Hello!  Every few months we like to reach out with important developments here at the Marion Animal Hospital.  In this newsletter we’d like to update you on a new full time doctor joining our practice, some changes to our automated phone prescription refill system, and to again share our appreciation for how our amazing clients have worked with us to help keep everyone safe during Covid-19.

Welcome, Dr. Seideman!

We’d like to officially welcome Dr. Todd Seideman to the Marion Animal Hospital team!

Dr. Seideman earned his first degree in biology from the University of Arizona, and then worked in the IT industry for several years before returning to school. Later he earned his DVM in 2011 from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine on the island of St. Kitts. Dr. Seideman then worked in emergency medicine for three years before moving into general practice hospitals. His special interests are in internal medicine and ultrasound, and he currently resides in Plymouth with his wife and their three dogs and five cats.


Prescription Refill Requests – An Update to Our Phones.

We will shortly begin updating the prescription refill request option through our automated phone system.  These updates will include a more streamlined version of the phone questionnaire, resulting in fewer questions with more flexibility to allow for multiple medication requests for multiple pets.  To access the prescription refill line please call our office at 800-279-6724, select option 2, and then follow the recorded prompts.

In addition to our phone request system, an online prescription refill request form is available on our website at marionanimalhospital.com/pharmacy-request/.  Orders can also be placed through our online store at marionanimalhospital.securevetsource.com/index.pml, which offers free home delivery for purchases over $49, or which have been scheduled for reoccurring deliveries with the Auto-ship feature.  Medications, preventatives, and diets are all available through this online store!

Please be aware that we may require up to two business days to process and complete any medication requests.


Covid 19 Protocols – Thank You From All of Us!

We would like to again thank our wonderful clients for their continued patience with our Covid-19 protocols.  Our primary goal is to keep ourselves open and operational so that we may provide services and care to our patients, and at this time we feel continuing to follow the recommendations of the American Veterinary Medical Association will best allow us to maintain that goal through curbside services.

We understand how difficult it can be to not accompany your pets during their visits, and we are all looking forward to the day we can again open our practice doors to the public.  Until then we remain incredibly grateful for your patience and understanding, which has allowed us to continue providing the best care we possibly can to you and your pets, while helping us to remain safe and active in the veterinary field.

Each month we will reassess our protocols to ensure we are taking the most appropriate approach possible as we continue to explore additional avenues of care for our furry friends.

Thank you from all of us,

– The Staff of the Marion Animal Hospital
