Update 8/4/22

Thank you for continuing to be patient with us as we navigate these strange and challenging times. Clients are now allowed in the building, but you must wear a mask to enter. One client is permitted into the exam room with their pet. If you have a positive test or experiencing any symptoms of Covid, we ask that you be symptom-free for at least seven days before the appointment.

Curbside service is still available if you would like to limit contact. If you prefer curbside service, please stay in your car and call or text us when you arrive in the parking area on the day of your visit. We will have a veterinary assistant complete the history over the phone. We will then meet you in front of the clinic to get your pet and its carrier. We ask that you stay nearby and keep your phone readily accessible for curbside appointments. Most appointments are 45 minutes long.

If your cat is here for a drop-off visit, you can return home until the doctor contacts you to discuss their exam findings and projected pick-up time.

For all interactions with our staff, masks are still required regardless of vaccination status.
