COVID-19 Updates

During this difficult time, protecting the health and well-being of our clients and employees is a priority.
We have implemented some crucial changes to be compliant with the Covid-19 government issued stay at home order,
while still treating your pet with the quality care and service you've come to expect.
At this time, we are not changing our hours of operation or our on call services to accommodate your pets' needs.

* We are practicing social distancing by only providing curbside service with client-free lobbies.

* When you arrive at your appointment time, call the office and a technician will take your pet's information over the phone.

* A technician will come out to your car to retrieve your pet and bring it in to the office for treatment

* The doctor will then call you at your car and go over the exam, diagnosis and any treatments needed.

* The technician will take payment over the phone, whenever possible, and return your pet to your car

* We're communicating predominately by phone throughout your pet's visit.

* Visitation is suspended with the exception of end of life circumstances.

* At this time, if your pet has to be hospitalized, we are not allowing any outside bedding, dishes or toys.

* In compliance with the Governor's recommendations, we are suspending all elective surgeries until further notice.

* Our team is following enhanced cleaning protocols, excelling at personal hygiene, and not traveling.

* If you need refills on any medication or food, you must call ahead to place your order.
Then once you arrive call the office and a technician will bring your order out to your car.
