Thank you all so much for your understanding and patience these past years with the changes we had to institute due to the pandemic. We all know just how unprecedented it was, and we appreciate your cooperation in helping us continue to provide care for your beloved pet while keeping our team healthy.

We are excited for yet another change!

Beginning Monday, April 4, 2022, we will no longer limit the number of family members present for examinations. We will also be allowing clients into the building for technician appointments. Due to the small size of the lobby, we still ask that you call from your car upon arrival and provide a history over the phone so we can limit traffic in the building. We have found that the decreased noise in the lobby has seemed to really relax many of your pets. We will gladly escort you into an exam room when it is ready.

For our day admission appointments and surgical patients, we will remain curbside only due to the limited space in the hospital.

If you do not wish to come into the office for your pet’s appointment or simply enjoy the convenience of curbside, we are pleased to continue to offer this as an option.
A mask will not be required in accordance with our county’s guidelines. You may see some of our staff continue to wear them. If you would feel more comfortable if our team members wear a mask during your interaction, we will happily do so.

The lobby will also be open for prescription medication and food pick-ups. Again, if you would prefer to have these brought to your car, please just call in when you are here and ask!

We look forward to seeing you and your pet!

How often do you wash your pet’s dishes? Be honest! Unless your answer is “after every single use”, you aren’t washing them enough. With that being said, we aren’t here to be the “wash your pet’s dish” police but we do want to keep them happy and healthy! Would you eat off of the same dish for multiple days at a time? Your pet doesn’t want to either!

After your pet has eaten dinner, a quick wash with soap and hot water takes under a minute and will have your pet feeling fresh during their next meal. If you have multiple dishes that your pets eat out of, rotate them in and out of the dishwasher so they can be as clean and fresh as possible! Dishwashers usually run in the range of 130-170 degrees which is hot enough to kill the nasty grime living on your pet’s dishes. They have never specifically told us, but we have a feeling they’ll appreciate the extra work and cleaning you’ve done for them.

While we’re on the topic of pet dishes, we have one more tip for you! Stay away from plastic bowls as they are more susceptible to harboring bacteria that can make your pet sick. All in all, roughly two to three minutes a day to wash your pet’s dishes will make a big difference in the long run.

If you have any questions at all, our veterinary team is here to help! You can contact us via email or phone and a friendly member of our staff will get back to you as soon as possible!
