The Downtown Veterinarian endeavors to promote the highest standard of companion animal health care for people who view their pets as extensions of their family. Devotion to providing a medical environment with compassion, technology and education as our goal has placed this hospital above the rest.

We are proud to announce that we were just named as a 'Super Service Award' winner from Angie's List for the 15th consecutive year. This designation is given only to the very top service providers in their respective fields. Thank you to all of our valued clients for their support these many years.

**Change of Saturday hospital hours Effective October 1st, our hospital will be open every other Saturday from 8:00am-1:00pm. This new schedule will allow our medical staff some well-deserved rest and provide time at home with their families. These past 18 months have been a very challenging and difficult time for all of us, and we know for you as well, and we genuinely appreciate your support during this unprecedented period.

Covid-19 Update
For Our Hospital

To Our Loyal and Dedicated Clients:

As of Monday, June 7, we will be offering transitional re-opening for clients to enter the building for their pet’s appointments. Every client will be REQUIRED to wear a mask (as will all staff), and, at this time, only one client will be allowed in with each pet. If a client has children with them, they will have to continue with curb-side appointments for now.

Our doors will remain locked. Your temperature will be checked at the entrance, and as long as it is under 100 degrees, you will be allowed into the hospital. You will then be escorted into the building by a veterinary nurse and taken directly into an exam room.

We will continue to offer curb-side appointments to everyone, if that is your preference.

To ensure everyone’s safety, at the completion of your appointment, you will be escorted to the front desk (one client at a time), for check out. Once everything is complete, a staff member will escort you back out to your vehicle.

We will still be curb-side ONLY (for now) for all medication and food pickups, drop off appointments/check-ins (including for all surgeries and procedures) as well as for all medical and surgical releases/discharges.

These changes will be in effect for the foreseeable future. There is no exact date when this policy will change at this time, as it will depend on the overall vaccination status and infection rate in the city.
