COVID Updates:

Our current weekday hours are Monday thru Friday 745 am until 6pm. We will remain closed on Saturdays until further notice. This schedule will be routinely re-evaluated         

 We will also continue to minimize person to person contact by having clients stay in their vehicles throughout the entire visit, with the exception of clients being with their pets during euthanasia. 

Please call whenever you arrive. You will be checked in over the phone, a staff member will come to your vehicle, take a history and retrieve your pet. Your pet will then be brought into the clinic and seen/treated. All communication from the veterinarian or technician will be over the phone or in the parking lot. Please provide as much history as possible to the receptionists when making your appointment. You can also e-mail any additional information. You will then be checked out by a receptionist and your pet will be returned to your vehicle. 

We highly recommend making drop-off appointments. You can drop off your pets and pick them back up at a predetermined time. We feel that this is the safest and least stressful way to have your pets needs taken care of, so please consider this.  We apologize for any inconvenience, but protecting the well-being of our staff MUST be our top priority during this difficult time.        

While dogs can contract certain types of coronavirus, according to the CDC, there is currently no evidence that COVID-19 can be transmitted from your pets:  “There is no reason to think that any animals including pets in the US might be a source of infection with this new coronavirus. At this time there is no evidence that companion animals including pets can spread COVID-19
