Information for Your Visit
Please note the following new drop-off process for appointments:

  • Upon arrival, please call to check in by phone and provide your parking-space number.
  • The veterinary team will be informed of your arrival and will call you back to ask you to bring your pet to the front door as soon as they’re ready for the patient. (If your pet is unable to walk to the door, we will ask you to drive to the door where we can help your pet onto a gurney).
  • While your pet is at the hospital, please remain available by phone to discuss exam findings and care options.
  • Upon discharge, your pet will be brought down the ramp near the entrance to the hospital to meet you. Payment will be taken by phone.
