Our team continues to be here for you and your cherished pets. We are OPEN and are now able to provide a wide range of services. To learn more about the changes we have implemented in response to COVID-19 and what to expect during your next visit, click here.
Spring cleaning or Fall cleaning it doesn’t matter – sometimes it is good to replace our towels, and blankets. Consider what to do with them.
Have you thought about donating them to animals? At the clinic, we use many towels and blankets daily (we do a lot of laundry). They are used to line the cages and kennels that we have the pets here in. They keep them comfortable before and after surgery. They are put onto the surgery tables to again help with warmth, as your temperature drops during surgery. We make them into cozy curled shapes, as we know that cats like to feel secure and slightly enclosed. We use them to hold onto scared pets again to give them a comfortable feeling when we are doing some treatments.
We use what we get donated to us, and they get a lot of wear and tear, as they are washed after every use and gradually become threadbare. We can always use some towels and smaller blankets.
The Humane Society is currently good for towels (though they do have a wish list for other items) consider speaking with many of the local rescue groups and see what their needs are. It is good to pass things along to those in need.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 15, 2020 some restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call 519-893-1360. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication. We are asking that all food and medications are pre-paid at the time of ordering it. If your food is not prepaid, we unfortunately cannot hold it for you for longer than 1 day at this time. If you are paying Debit, we will be allowing one client at a time to enter the clinic to pay. Currently, we prefer not to take cash.
Our online store is available to have your order delivered directly to your home. To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
3. ONLINE CONSULTATIONS ARE AVAILABLE
If you wish to connect with a veterinarian via message, phone or video, visit our website and follow the "Online Consultation" link.
