Accidents happen, no matter how careful you are. Pets can get lost, or run away. Microchipping your cat or dog brings peace of mind. In a worst case scenario, you know your pet will be found, brought to a vet office, and that you’ll be contacted right away using the information on the microchip.

What are the benefits of microchipping your pet?

The main benefit of having your pet microchipped is that your pet will always be identifiable. A tag can easily fall off, break or be removed, but a microchip is embedded under the skin, and remains there throughout their lifetime.

Most vet clinics and hospitals, animal shelters and pet stores have microchip scanners. That means if your pet gets lost or runs away, someone at one of such businesses will be able to scan the microchip and immediately get in touch with you.

Dear Clients,

With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 19, 2020 the restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.

1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!


  • Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
  • Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
  • Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication
  • 3. OPERATING HOURS We are OPEN with the following hours:
    Monday to Friday: 8 am - 5:00 pm
