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.

            For your convenience, 'drop-off' appointments are available. A 'drop off' means you could bring your pet at the time that works best for you and leave him/her with us for a couple of hours. Usually we will ask you to 'drop off' sometime in the morning so our doctors can examine the patient in between appointments or at the time purposely reserved for admitted patients. Once the doctor is done, she will give you a call to go over the diagnosis and to give you discharge instructions.

            For things such as nail trims, single vaccines or other health problems that do not require a full physical exam, we can schedule a 'runback' appointment. A 'runback' means that you can come in at any time that is most convenient for you (within regular office hours). At that time, we will take your pet from you for a few minutes and bring him/her to our treatment area. As soon as the doctor is available, she will examine the patient, cut nails, express anal glands etc. If you think that your companion needs medical attention, please call our office so we can schedule an appropriate appointment to minimize your waiting time.

           For the safety of all animals in our care, we require that all vaccinations be up to date. 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. This is one of the reasons we ask you to restrain your pet. We recommend that animals be placed on a leash or in pet carriers before entering the waiting room.
