 COVID-19 Pandemic Important Update 

Firstly, we sincerely hope that you, your family and furry family members are well during these uncertain times.

To ensure the health and safety of our staff and clients during the COVID-19 pandemic, we will continue to follow guidelines and regulations as outlined by our local Health Unit and the College of Veterinarians of Ontario. As things evolve, we hope to be able to relax some of our current measures, but we do not anticipate going back to business as usual for a while and will continue to follow current protocols.

We are happy to announce that we have resumed opening on Wednesdays from 8am to 6pm. We will continue to remain closed on Saturdays until further notice. Please note that we close for lunch from 1-2. We continue to offer our services to our existing clients, but we have temporarily had to make the difficult decision to not accept any new clients at this time. We are actively looking to grow our team to be able to better serve new and existing clients.  

 **If you have travelled outside of Canada within 14 days of your appointment or if you or someone in close contact is currently being tested or treated for COVID-19 virus please notify us so that we can make alternative arrangements for you.**


We will be using our phones as our primary means of communication with our clients.


If you require a prescription refill, food or to schedule an appointment please call our office. For orders of food and some medications, please note that it may take up to 10 business days to be received at the practice as our supplier is currently facing some shortages.


Please make note of the following procedures we have recently instituted:


*Ordering food and prescription medications: when you call our office, we will give you instructions to pay over the phone whenever possible. Once the product is available for pick up we will notify you and arrange a time for you to collect it from our front table.


*If you have a scheduled appointment please call to let us know that you have arrived. If you do not have access to a cell phone please notify our staff.   


We truly appreciate your patience and loyalty as we navigate through this challenging time. From our entire team, be well!
