In case of emergencies!

It is continuously frustrating to hear news about how the enhanced community quarantine in Luzon has prevented many veterinarians from doing their job; they are being stopped at various checkpoints because they are simply not considered as “essential workers” when in fact, they are.

In case you didn't know: Vets also play an important role in public health such as investigating zoonotic diseases, they play a critical role in helping stop its spread.

Our pets are our family and when anything alarming comes up regarding their health, it’s just as important to prioritise so we’ve done our research and compiled a number of veterinary clinics that are open as well as online groups where there are vets offering free consultations.

Take Note: The Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) has stated that there is no evidence that pets can spread COVID-19. You can read more about it here.


Similar to hospitals, you should also always call before you drop by so they can take necessary precautions.

Mount Sinai Veterinary Practice – Taguig


Mount Sinai is open from Monday to Wednesday, Friday to Saturday at 10 AM to 4 PM.
