  • kitty1.pngAppointments

Our appointment book is computerized which allows us to efficiently make appointments for you and your pet. Our receptionists and team will attempt to accommodate all requests to the best of our ability. Emergencies are accepted anytime our clinic is open. If you feel you have an emergency with your pet, please call us or come to the hospital immediately. If possible it is best to call before coming in so that a staff member can advise you on your particular emergency.

  • Emergency & Urgent Care

We have a veterinarian and personnel on duty 6 days a week who are trained and equipped to handle any urgent care your pet has. Usually an emergency team consists of at least one veterinarian and several technicians working together to save a pet's life. Emergencies can be things such a snail bait poisoning, hit by car, and chocolate ingestion. If you ever feel that your pet needs emergency treatment do not hesitate to call or come in immediately. If possible it is best to call before coming in so that a team member can advise you on your particular emergency.

We are also available for urgent care when the condition is not life-threatening, but you feel your pet needs to be seen before you are able to get an appointment. Our veterinarians will work to "squeeze" you in between scheduled appointments. When you arrive, our receptionists will be able to give you an estimate on how long you may have to wait in order to be seen.

Puppies and Kittens

Puppies and kittens start their vaccinations at 6-8 weeks of age. Second vaccinations are given at 10-12 weeks and the last vaccinations, which are good for 1 year, are given at 14-16 weeks and include the rabies vaccination. Puppies are not completely protected from Parvo until 1-2 weeks after their second vaccination so it is very important for them to receive the second vaccination at 10-12 weeks of age. When the puppies and kittens receive their rabies vaccinations (14-16 weeks) they will be given a rabies tag with owner identification information engraved on the rabies tag and a rabies certificate. Puppies and kittens should be spayed/neutered at 14 to 16 weeks of age to prevent unwanted litters and behavior.
