Office Update:

Dear clients,

Starting December 1st, 2021, we will be closing the clinic down Monday-Friday between 12:30-1:30pm. This is to give the staff time for lunch, to clean, and to reset for the rest of the day. Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, we have had a higher volume of appointments and need to value our staff's dedication with an uninterrupted break. 

Important Covid-19 Update:

For the health and safety of everyone we are currently requiring only one person per household (with the exception of children) to accompany your pet for their appointment and that social distancing protocol is still practiced throughout the clinic. This means there still is a limited capacity for waiting in our lobby. However, the use of face masks and coverings is now optional in our facility but highly recommended for clients that have not been vaccinated. If you have any questions feel free to contact our office, as providing the best care for your pet is always our top priority. For information regarding the Elanco Statement of Safety of Seresto®, please visit our Resources page under Forms.

We apologize for any inconvenience regarding these updates and appreciate your understanding during this time!
