**Attention Clients**

We have had several calls and emails over the past few days asking if we’re still open and operating  given the current situation with Covid-19. The answer is yes. However, we are taking additional safety measures suggested by the CDC and American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) to protect our clients, staff, and community. We are no longer allowing entrance into our hospital. If your pet needs veterinary care, please call to schedule an appointment. Once you arrive at our hospital, please call the office and a member of our staff will bring your pet in for treatment. We will communicate with you over the phone in regard to exam findings and treatment recommendations. Once we have established a treatment plan with you, we will treat your pet and return them to your vehicle. We recommend making a payment with a credit card over the phone, but if this is not an option, we can accept payment at your car as well. Unfortunately, we have been consistently booked for at least a week in advanced for normal appointments, and our surgical appointments have been booked for at least two weeks in advanced. If you would like an appointment please call us as soon as possible, and we will do our best to get you in as quickly as possible. We appreciate your patience and look forward to seeing you. Also, given our current protocol, we do request that you come as close to your appointment time as possible to avoid long wait times as we  aren't able to see anyone earlier than their designated appointment time. 

If you are feeling sick, please stay home. If your pet is having a medical emergency and you are the only one available to bring your pet here, please inform our staff of your illness so that we may take additional safety measures.

We have also altered our operating hours. Please see the hours listed below. 

If you have any questions, please call our office. We'll get through this together. Stay safe and stay healthy. 

We have moved our office to 117 Salem Drive, New Alexandria, PA 15670. Our phone number is the same. If you need directions to our office, just give us a call,, and we will be happy to assist you. 

We are also now accepting reservations for boarding. If you would like your pet to stay with us, just call the office at the number listed above, and we will be happy to answer any questions and make a reservation for you.
