Update 5/19/20 We are now able to offer appointments for well pet examinations and vaccines. We can also begin to do neuter/spay and dental surgeries. We will continue to use CURBSIDE APPOINTMENTS AND PICK UPS. For the safety of our staff, and other clients, we are doing our best to limit access to communal areas. We do request that you take precautions if you are not feeling well, and have an alternate responsible party transport your pet to our hospital. If you are picking up food or medicine: Call us so that payment can be processed over the phone then a staff member will bring your pet's food or medicine out to your vehicle. (Arrangements can be made for cash transactions) If you are here for an appointment: Call us to check in with the front desk. When the doctor is ready to begin your pet's physical exam a technician will retrieve your pet from your vehicle. You will be connected via phone with the doctor so that you may relay your pet's history and current medical status. Once the physical exam and any diagnostics and/or treatments are complete you will be phoned again. At this point the doctor will go over any take home instructions, and you will be transferred to our front desk for invoicing and payment. Your pet will be transported back to your vehicle, along with any recommended take home supplies, by a technician. We realize that this is a big change to our daily operations, and appreciate your patience and understanding during this emergency situation. 410-461-2235
