Most emergencies require on-site diagnostic testing ability (xrays, bloodwork, etc.), staffing on-site, and ability to hospitalize sick pets. Brick-and-mortar practices are generally better suited to handle emergencies than mobile services. While we may be able to advise you via text, WE DO NOT DO EMERGENCY VISITS.
We are providing some services remotely when possible via text and email appointments FOR CURRENT PATIENTS ONLY. The AVMA and state law require that we have seen you and your pet in person within the past year to provide telemedicine services.
-We are doing surgeries and teeth cleaning again on a wait-list basis. We are not currently doing any spay/neuter.
FARMER'S MARKET SERVICES: Friday 9-12, 1-2pm and Sunday 9-2pm
