Appointment Policy

To allow ample time for all patients 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.  We do see walk-in appointments based on doctor availability.  Walk-in patients who are not emergencies will be seen in the order in which they arrive.

For your convenience, 'drop-off' appointments are available. A 'drop off' means you schedule to bring your pet on the day and 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 sometime in the morning so that our doctors can examine the patient in between appointments or at the time purposely reserved for admitted patients. Once the doctor is done, she will give you a call to go over the diagnosis and to give you discharge instructions.

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. This is one of the reasons we that animals be placed on a leash or in pet carriers while at the clinic.
