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

Dear Downtown Veterinarian Family,

Due to on-going concerns with the coronavirus status, and particularly the new omicron strain, we have made the following change in hospital policy. This decision is being made out of an abundance of caution for the safety of our clients as well as our staff.

This policy change is effective as of Tuesday January 4th, 2022. We will only be offering "curb-side" appointments or drop off appointments for the foreseeable future. In a "curb-side" appointment, you would safely stay in your car. You would call us to notify us of your arrival. A staff member would then speak with you via phone. They would then come out to collect your pet and bring them into the hospital. The doctor would examine your pet and would then call you to review their findings and recommendations. Any lab samples would be collected, medications collected, payment collected by phone and your pet would then be brought back out to you. We anticipate the time required for these appointments would be very similar to the "routine" exams you are familiar with. There is no expected delay for you.

Lastly, the same protocol will occur for medication refills and prescription food requests. Please note that medication refills can take 24-48 hours to be approved and ready for pickup and when you do arrive, simply call us from the parking lot. We will get your medication or food, collect payment by phone and then bring it out to your car.

We appreciate your understanding. Again, we are trying to be mindful of the best and safest policies we can adopt at this very challenging time. As this situation continues to evolve, we hope to once again offer in person visits in the near future.
