COVID-19 Safety Protocols 

In early June, we started allowing clients to enter the building with their pets. Masks will still be required until further notice to allow time for our staff to get fully vaccinated. Please visit our COVID-19 web page for updates, including details on all of our safety protocols. We are still experiencing a high demand for emergency veterinary services and continue to triage emergency cases to care for the most critically injured or ill pets first.
