Our goal is to see all of our clients and patients on time, and although we have contingencies for emergencies, there will be times where the unexpected will create delays. We will ensure these are minimized as much as possible.
You will normally see a Veterinary Technician first who will take a history, and gather some data for the doctor. A veterinarian will see you next, examine your pet, answer your questions and plan further diagnostics or treatment as necessary.
You will normally see the Technician again to wrap things up, and they will provide you with further educational information and answer routine wellness and care questions for you. Our client care specialists will handle billing and schedule any needed follow-up.
We are excited to meet you and your human and animal family members!

Petcard offers a simple and affordable way to finance the treatment or product your pet needs and it allows you to get it without delay. With various options including fixed monthly payment programs and credit card programs, there are no penalties for early payment.
If this is the best option for you, we encourage you to apply for approval so that coverage is in place when you need it. This type of credit can also be used for elective procedures such as spaying or neutering, dentistry, annual vaccinations, and conditions that are excluded by your pet insurance – virtually any type of expenditure you may have at our veterinary hospital.
With competitive interest rates and easy monthly payments, some clients opt to use this credit card to pay for the veterinary care, then use their pet insurance reimbursement to pay down their credit card.
