New Client Protocol- updated 8/25/21

At this time we are only accepting new clients on a very limited basis. Please call us for more details before filling out a new client form.

Coronavirus Protocol -updated 9.16.21

We have recently updated our COVID-19 protocol in response to the increase in COVID-19 cases in our area, and the increase in break-through cases with the new variants. Our goal is to keep our veterinarians at the lowest exposure risk, so that we can continue seeing as many pets as possible. 

We will still only be allowing 1 owner per appointment/ family into the building. If you must bring more family members with you please call us when you arrive and we can do a curbside appointment. 

If you or anyone in your household are having any potential symptoms of COVID-19 (cough, shortness of breath, fever, loss of taste or smell or cold-like symptoms), have tested positive in the last 14 days, or have had a known COVID-19 exposure, please reschedule, or have someone else bring your pet to their appointment. We will be asking you these questions at the reminder call, or when you arrive for your appointment. 

If you answer yes to one of the above, and are unable to get someone else to bring your pet- there are certain cases in which we may be able to do a telemedicine visit (phone call with photos or video texted or emailed from you), or a curbside appointment. 

When you arrive at the animal hospital, you may come inside and check in at the front desk. Please bring a cloth mask from home, and wear it the entire time you are inside the building. We will have a limited number of paper masks available if you forget to bring one. 

The technician will meet with you in the lobby and go over the intake questions, and make note of any questions or concerns that you have about your pet.

The technician will then bring your pet into the exam room. We are not allowing clients into the exam rooms at this time. We encourage clients to wait in the lobby, or on the front porch. If the doctor has any questions during the exam, they could then easily come out to ask. Please do not leave! Once the doctor is finished examining your pet he/she will come out to go over the exam findings. 

We will be making special considerations for euthanasia appointments. There is an outside, covered exam area that may be used for dogs, so you can stay with your pet the entire time if you choose to do so. For cats we will be allowing 1 owner into the exam room. If you wish to have more family members present we can bring your cat into the outside exam area after they are sedated.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding to keep our veterinarians as safe as possible!
