Hospital Policies

Appointment Policy

To allow ample time for all patients and scheduled surgical procedures, we operate primarily by appointment. Emergency cases shall always receive top priority, which is why occasional appointment delay is inevitable. Please realize that we make a sincere attempt to see each client on time.

  1. For the safety of all animals in our care, we require that all vaccinations be up to date and that animals be placed on a leash or in pet carriers before entering the waiting room. Even though we make every effort to make our patients feel comfortable during visits, they may be a little uneasy about new people, new surroundings, and other pets.

Please consider scheduling your appointment via phone, email or through the Vet Portal.

Prescription Policy

Please allow 48 hours for your prescription diet, medication, and/or supplement to be refilled. Please consider ordering your prescription via phone or our online pharmacy. You will be contacted via phone when your pet’s prescription is ready for pick-up at our front desk. If you are unable to pick-up your pet’s supplies during our hours of business, please ask our receptionists about after hours pick-up options.

For your protection, and the protection of the other patients and owners visiting our office, we ask that all pets be properly restrained while in the waiting area or exam rooms. Dogs must be on a leash and properly controlled, and all cats and other small animals must be presented in an appropriate cat carrier or on a leash.

No call/No show policy: Clients are required to give 24 hours’ notice if they need to cancel/reschedule any appointments. By not canceling/rescheduling at the appropriate time a note will be recorded on your record. After 3 no call/no shows, the clinic may terminate the hospital-client-patient relationship.
