Vaccination appointments include a complete physical exam and administration of required vaccines. The duration of each appointment is 30 minutes. Our veterinarians may recommend additional procedures based on their clinical observations during the physical exam. You have the right to decline these procedures or you can ask for an estimate before proceeding further.
Each medical appointment will take at least 30 minutes and may go longer. Please don’t be hesitant to ask for an estimate before proceeding with any diagnostic testing or procedure. We may need more than one diagnostic before getting in to a confirmatory diagnosis. The client has the right to decline a diagnostic or procedure and in that case the clinic will not take any responsibility on the outcome.
We try our best to accommodate any emergency. Please do your best to call us before arrive at the clinic to allow our staff to prepare the clinic for your pets arrival. The duration of the appointment is not predictable. We may refer you to an emergency clinic if your pet requires 24 hour care or hospitalization.
Patients may need hospitalization for 24 hours or more. Our clinic is not equipped for 24 hour monitoring and we strongly recommend a full service emergency clinic for overnight hospitalization.
We perform surgeries most days of a week but require early confirmation for surgeries booked. Surgery admission is early morning and our veterinarians have the right to deny the procedure, if you arrive late for your appointment. Intravenous fluid administration is mandatory in both feline and canine spay surgery. We recommend blood work, IV fluids, microchip, E collar and pain medications to go home with after surgery. Prior up-to-date vaccination is highly recommended for surgery and the clinic will not be responsible, if your dog or cat gets infected with a disease from the clinic due to insufficient vaccination. Discharge time is after 2 PM each day.
All new clients should fill out a registration form (available on website). Please come 10 minutes early to allow sufficient time to fill out the form. You can also find the form on our website if you would like to download and fill it out in advance.
