    For your convenience, our doctors see patients by appointment only. If your pet has an emergency during our office hours, please call to speak with our staff. Emergency cases always receive priority, so occasional delay in appointments can not be avoided. We appreciate your patience in these situations and ask that you remember, the next emergency could be your pet. Your time is just as important as ours, so we strive to stay on schedule.

     We ask that you kindly give 24 hour notice on all appointment changes whenever possible. Please understand that last minute cancelation or missed appointments are subject to a fee.

    All pets must be on a leash or in a carrier for their own safety. By state law, all pets must be current on the Rabies vaccination.
