Even though your pet may not have eaten since midnight, s/he will most likely still need to go to the bathroom. Please give your cats access to a litter box and walk your dogs before bringing them to the clinic.

Please stay in your car!

Allow 20 minutes for the check in process.  Make sure to bring all required documents (we must see a rabies certificate if you do not want us to vaccinate your pet against rabies (your pet does not have to have a rabies vaccination prior to this appointment, we just need to see the certificate IF s/he is NOT getting a rabies vaccination through us). We do not accept debit or credit cards. We request payment in cash (no checks) at check-in.

Cats must be in Carriers! If you do not have a carrier, we will send them home in a cardboard one and the charge is $5.
