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.

To help us stay on schedule, please arrive on time for your appointment. 

For your convenience, "drop-off" appointments are available. A drop-off means you could bring your pet at the time that works best for you and leave them with us for a couple of hours. Usually we will ask you to bring your pet sometime in the morning so our doctors can examine the patient in between appointments or at the time purposely reserved for admitted patients. Once the doctor is done, they 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.


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

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 ask you to restrain your pet. 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.
