Our team continues to be here for you and your cherished pets. We are OPEN and are now able to provide a wide range of services. To learn more about the changes we have implemented in response to COVID-19 and what to expect during your next visit, click here.
Dogs and cats age faster than people so significant changes in your pet’s health can happen in a short time.
Because of this it is important to have physical examinations performed on your pet once a year. Senior pets, or pets with health concerns, may need to have a check up more frequently.
These annual examinations allow us to diagnose disease and conditions early, to treat them more easily, or prevent disease entirely. This is done through a thorough history review and a “hands on” examination. If warranted, any further lab work or diagnostic testing will be discussed with you at that time. We will work with you to create a health plan for your pet.
If your pet is ill or showing any changes in health that are not typical, please call the hospital to book an appointment. With six veterinarians we can often accommodate you very quickly. We are a modern Hospital with an in house laboratory, ultrasound and digital x-ray so can perform many diagnostic procedures on site. We can often give you immediate answers and start treating your pet quickly.
We understand the close relationship between pets and their owners. We strive to examine, diagnose then implement a treatment plan as quickly as possible with minimal wait times. This ensures your pet is home as quickly as possible.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective July 6, 2020, one client per appointment will be allowed into the hospital. Below are important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. We will then meet you at the door to allow one owner and your pet into the hospital for your appointment. We ask that you bring a mask to wear a mask (medical or non-medical) for the duration of your appointment and maintain physical distance from staff. There are floor stickers to guide you throughout the clinic.
Contactless appointments, where clients remain outside, are still available.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
