Appointment Policy

To allow ample time for all patient visits and scheduled surgical procedures, we operate primarily by appointment. Emergency cases shall always receive top priority, which is why occasional appointment delay is inevitable. Please realize that we make a sincere attempt to see each client on time.

For your convenience, 'drop-off' appointments are available. A 'drop off' means you can bring your pet at the time that works best for you, and leave him/her with us for a couple of hours. Usually we will ask you to 'drop off' your pet sometime in the morning, so our doctor can examine the patient between appointments or at the time reserved for admitted patients. Once the doctor is done, he will give you a call to go over the diagnosis and treatment options.

For the safety of all animals in our care, we require that all vaccinations be up to date. Even though we make every effort to make our patients feel comfortable during visits, they may be a little uneasy about new people, new surroundings and other pets.  We recommend that animals be placed on a leash or in pet carriers before entering the hospital.

 

Payment Policy

We require full payment at the time that services are rendered. For your convenience, we accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, cash and personal checks.


Patient Arrival Policy

For your protection, and that of others, all dogs must be on a leash and properly controlled while in the waiting area or exam rooms.

All cats must be presented in an appropriate cat carrier or on a leash.
