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.

Covid-19 Update
For Our Hospital

We first want to thank each and every one of you for your continuing loyalty and commitment to our hospital during these very confusing and unsettling times. We are all looking forward to the day when things do finally settle down and we can get back to our "business as usual" lives.

As recommended to us by our national and state veterinary associations, we will continue (for now) to provide only "curb-side services. This decision was not made lightly, but, instead, out of an abundance of caution for the health of you and our medical staff. We hope to once again offer in-hospital visits in the near future. We will keep you updated.


Due to on-going concerns with the coronavirus status, 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. The recommendations from our community leaders are frequently being updated, and we are responding to their directive.

This policy change is effective this afternoon (Wednesday March 18). We are now only offering “curb-side” appointments or drop off appointments. 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 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, a similar protocol will occur for medication refills and prescription food requests. Please call us 24 hours prior to needing a refill of your pet’s medication, and when you do arrive for pick up, simply call us from the parking lot. We will get your medication or food, collect payment 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. We will keep you abreast of any additional changes as they present.
