 * There is one new update for 2023:

Registered Veterinary Technician Appointments likely to kick off in March/April.

Sometime during the spring of this year we are hoping to kick off a new option in providing access to routine preventative care services (vaccines, heartworm testing, intestinal parasite screening and access to prescriptions for Heartworm, flea and tick products) as well minor problem visits for our ESTABLISHED PATIENTS with greater availability/convenience  and a lower price point than our traditional Veterinarian Doctor based appointments. With the creation of Registered Veterinary Technician based appointments, we are aiming to reduce wait times for access to regular preventative services as well as open up more doctor availability for those truly ill or injured patients which do need hands on doctor appointments. In addition, our price point for our RVT based appointment will be substantially lower than our Doctor Based Appointment fee. Stay tuned for updates on this new option as it becomes available.

Illness and Injury Care

Unfortunately, despite your best efforts sometimes your companion animals will become sick or injured. Illness and Injury block off appointments are open for advanced scheduling for illness or injury problems only - giving us the capacity to see our sick patients sooner. We do accept new clients / new patients with problems through our Illness and Injury Appointments. These appointments are designed to handle most of the demand for our short term needs patients (things that should be see within 1-3 days) and are not utilized by routine preventative care / wellness scheduling.

However, sometimes even these Illness and Injury appointment slots can become filled up to several days in advance. If this is the case we have one additional option for our Establish Clients Only:

Flex Urgent Care Appointments

We have also experienced a substantial increase in both established and new client visit requests - to address this surge, we’ve integrated FLEX URGENT CARE SLOTS into our daily schedule. These slots are additional to our time specific scheduled wellness / preventative care and Illness/Injury appointments. These FLEX URGENT CARE SLOTS can only be utilized by our established clients and established patients after all other available time specific appointment slots have been filled.

There are four FLEX URGENT CARE SLOTS per day, two morning / afternoon blocks, which are flexibly timed. Our staff will request you come in and we will start an initial history / triage, and fit your pet in based on urgency and existing case load. We advise you call early, as once these slots are filled we don’t have excess capacity and will have to refer you to Emergency Services -- which you do not want to have happen.

Let us reiterate –THESE FLEX URGENT CARE SLOTS ARE FOR OUR ESTABLISHED CLIENTS/PATIENTS ONLY - and are only opened up on that particular day. These slots are at an increased fee premium to offset additional support staff costs, and frankly to discourage less than urgent cases from utilizing them.

EMERGENCIES

In the event your pet has an emergency PLEASE CALL OUR OFFICE  so we can help facilitate the fastest access to the most prudent care -- In some cases, the nature of the problem may dictate the best level of medical care can be achieved by recommended transfer to a Specialty Referral Practice or a 24 Hour Emergency Practice. We utilize these important options on a case by case basis - including referral for overnight care, monitoring and continuation of treatments which were initiated by our practice during the day.

Specialty Referral and Emergency Care

In addition to our own in-house capabilities, we maintain professional working relationships with top diagnostic laboratories, board certified referral specialists and emergency and critical care facilities. We draw upon these relationships to enable us to extend the highest quality of cutting edge surgical and medical science to our patients. Specialist Referrals
