Services

 

Appointments

Our appointment book is computerized which allows us to efficiently make appointments for you and your pet. Our receptionists and team will attempt to accommodate all requests to the best of our ability. We are open for scheduled appointments from:

  • Monday to Friday: 9am – 6pm
  • Saturday: 9am – 12pm
  • Urgent Care

    We are also available for urgent care when the condition is not life-threatening, but you feel your pet needs to be seen before you are able to get an appointment. Our veterinarians will work to “squeeze” you in between scheduled appointments. When you arrive, our receptionists will be able to give you an estimate on how long you may have to wait in order to be seen.

Payment Policy

Payment for all services is due at the time of your visit. We accept cash, check, all major credit cards, and PayPal. As an added convenience, we also offer CareCredit® with no-interest payment plans. Contact us with any questions regarding our policy.
