Beary Special Clinic

Teddy Bear Clinic

There’s something beary special coming up — a teddy bear clinic, and we need your help! Our Beary Special Clinic — for the members of your family that need a little extra love and care — is happening soon!  Perhaps their stuffing is leaking out, or their tail needs a little support. We need your help to keep these friends in tip top shape!

Gateway’s Beary Special Teddy Bear Clinic

Join us Saturday, July 8 2023 from 9 – 11 a.m. for our Beary Special Teddy Bear Clinic. Children can bring their favorite bear, stuffy or doll that is in need of a little TLC. 

The first thing you’ll do when you arrive is to check in your beary special friend and let us know the reason for your visit.  (Yes, everything that happens during the visit will be documented in your chart!) While you wait in our gorgeous waiting room, you enjoy the activities that we’ll have waiting for you to tackle!  

Once you’re called back, your beary special friend will be seen by the nurse.  Together, we’ll get their height, weight, and temperature checked — we will need your help for this! One of our nurses will then assess your friend and take care of getting vitals and needed vaccinations.  Then, the full work-up happens. Does your special friend struggle with asthma and need a breathing treatment?  Great! Is there a cast needed on that tail? We’ll take care of it!  Is further bloodwork needed to make an assessment? You’re in the right place — our lab is right around the corner.

Once your beary special friend is ready to go home and recover, we’ll give you supplies to keep them healthy at home.  We can’t wait to take care of your special friends, and we are so glad that you are bringing them in!

The Beary Special Clinic is completely free and is an open house format, but please do R.S.V.P. ahead of time at the Eventbrite link. We can’t wait to see you — and your beary special friend — soon!
