COVID-19 Service and Schedule Update, as of September 15, 2020

The precautions that we have been taking, and our slightly reduced schedule, will continue at least through the first week of October, at which time we will reassess again.

We will continue to be open from 8am to 5pm on weekdays. This allows us extra time to clean the hospital at the end of the day, and to take care of some of the administrative work that we need to do to keep running efficiently.

We are continuing to restrict access to our hospital to staff members only. Please call when you arrive with your pet. We have numbered parking spaces, so let us know where you are parked, and which phone number you are calling from. Please remain in your car and keep your phone on while your pet is in the building, in case we need to reach you during their appointment.

We will continue to take history and payment information over the phone as well.

In addition to seeing sick / injured pets, and pets who need end of life care, we are also increasing the number of wellness visits that we are able to see this month. This includes annual exams and vaccines (even when rabies is not due).

Unfortunately, we still cannot accommodate appointments for nail trims or grooming.

Please call and pay ahead for all medication and food refills, and let us know when you plan to pick up, so we can have everything ready for you.

If you feel sick, or someone in your house is sick, please reschedule any appointments you have with us. That will help our staff to remain healthy and ready to take care of your pets.

We thank you all again for your continued understanding and cooperation, and hope you stay safe and healthy!
