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.
When you leave town and don’t have a pet sitter, you need some place for your pet to stay. We are able to provide a safe place for your pet and will administer any medications they need. You are able to bring their own food (and should if they are on a special diet) and multiple pets can be boarded together if they prefer. Should any medical problems arise while you are away, every attempt will be made to contact you, but rest assured they will get medical care in an emergency if you cannot be reached.
Pets must be up to date on all core vaccines (DAP – dogs, FVRCP – cats, Rabies – both). Additionally, dogs must be current on the Bordetella vaccine. Should your pet need vaccines prior to boarding and is overdue, they should be scheduled in for an appointment at least 1 week in advance.
How much is pet boarding?
Boarding rates vary by your pet’s size and whether or not they require medications while boarding. If you have two or more pets boarding at one time, they can share a cage or run at a discounted rate. Please call us to inquire about cost and to schedule a reservation.
Have you been to the dentist and received local freezing? If so, then you have had a dental nerve block. Most dental procedures produce strong sensory stimuli to the point that it affects the amount of general anesthetic required and a painful recovery.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 19, 2020 the restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some 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. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online 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".
3. ONLINE CONSULTATIONS ARE AVAILABLE
If you wish to connect with a veterinarian via message, phone or video, visit our website and follow the "Online Consultation" link.
