UPDATED 7/5/21

Our lobby is now open again! For clients that are fully vaccinated for COVID-19, wearing a mask is optional. Masks are required for everyone else coming inside the building.

We are offering both “curbside” and in person appointments for your pet.

For curbside appointments:

  • Park on the left side of the hospital in one of the numbered spots with an instruction sign.
  • Notify us when you have arrived at the hospital by phone or through the app (preferred).
  • Your pet will be retrieved from your car, and the doctor will call you on the phone to discuss the findings and recommendations.
  • You need to remain at the hospital for the duration of your pet’s appointment.

For in person appointments:

  • Please come inside to the lobby as soon as you arrive. Do NOT wait in your car.
  • People who have completed a COVID-19 vaccine at least 2 weeks ago are allowed to enter the building without wearing a mask.
  • All unvaccinated clients need to continue to wear a mask that covers their nose and mouth the entire time they are in the building. This includes children.

We are utilizing telemedicine consultations, when appropriate. We will be conducting as many transactions as possible over the phone, e-mail, and chat function through our Vet2Pet App.  As our phone lines are often very busy these days, we recommend communication through email or chat (via the app) whenever possible.

We thank you for your continued patience and willingness to comply with the ever-changing procedures!

What our clients say about us:

We feel very fortunate to have an animal hospital with a staff that puts us at ease when we call (no matter how big or small the issue) and a doctor that takes time to listen and treats our pets as if they are her own. — Beth M.

I’m very satisfied with everything over the last 5 years. You know my puppy well and take very good care of Lexi. I definitely will continue to use this clinic for my puppies. The staff is very caring and knowledgable. They are all great! — Marci S.
