COVID-19 LOCKDOWN UPDATE

.

The Ontario government has deemed veterinary medicine an essential service, so we are opened for business!
Monday - Friday: 8am - 6pm
Saturday: 8:30am - 2pm.

OVMA has ruled that practices can continue to offer a full range of services, provided the client does not enter the practice. At this time we cannot offer any grooming services such as nail trims unless it's deemed medically necessary. We recommend calling ahead to schedule all appointments, but urgent cases will be seen on an as needed basis. We request that you call in advance for any food or prescription refills and pay for it over the phone, or order it through our website (click the 'Shop Now' tab on the main menu). When your arrive, please call and we will bring your items outside for curbside service. 

If you are displaying any symptoms of COVID-19, if you have been exposed to a known COVID-19 patient, or if you have travelled outside of Canada in the last 14 days, we ask that you arrange for a friend or family member to accompany your pet to your scheduled appointment. If this is not possible, please call us and we can arrange alternative means to help your pet.

Our commitment to our clients and patients have not changed, and we will continue to do everything we can to ensure your pets well being. We thank you all for your patience during this difficult time.
