Has your pet potentially got into something he/ she shouldn’t have? You will need to call your veterinarian, but first please collect a little information that we will ask you before you pick up that telephone.
Owning a pet is one of the most rewarding choices many of us make. The unconditional love that a pet can give us can be just what everyone needs. Some of us are just meant to be animal lovers and some of us are not. Either way is just fine but for those of us […]
Most people want a dog that is friendly and well-behaved; a dog that is able to cope with the large variety of situations that they may find themselves in. Some dogs are naturally more social than others. But all puppies need exposure to a variety of situations to help them develop those skills.
Kittens will get vaccinations at 8 weeks, 12 weeks and 16 weeks, then annually.
A vaccine is a substance created to incite an immune response for a particular disease. It needs to be given multiple times to a kitten to initiate his immune system.
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. OPERATING HOURS
We are OPEN with the following hours:
Monday to Friday 9:00 am – 5:00 pm Saturday & Sunday: Closed
