We would like to inform you that effective September 21, we are extending our operating hours on all Tuesdays from 8am - 5pm to 8am - 7pm. We hope that the new time will be more convenient to our clients and allow us to provide a better service to you.
As always, we must also have our staff’s best interests in mind. To avoid the risk of employee burnout with our extended hours, we will be adjusting our hours and services on select Saturdays. Effective October 2021, we will be continuing our normal business hours, 8am - 12pm on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of each month.
The remaining Saturdays we will only be open for a 2 hour window from 9am - 11am in which we can accommodate medicine pick ups and/or boarding services. As there will not be a veterinarian on site on these limited Saturdays, we will not be able to schedule appointments or fill new prescriptions on those days.
We thank you for your continued support.
