We are open and are offering curbside service for our patients. At this time, we are not allowing clients in the building for appointments. If you are making an end of life decision, accommodations will be made on a case by case basis. Please be patient with us as we are working hard to provide the best care, as well as maintain the safety guidelines recommended by the CDC and VDH. Please follow these steps during your pet's appointment for checking in, waiting and discharge. 

When you arrive, please park as close to the building as possible. You may either check in via phone call or through the reception window located at the front of the building. At this time, you will provide the receptionist with a contact number and vehicle description.

A member of our team will come out to your vehicle to admit your pet. We ask that you remain in the parking lot for the entirety of the visit. 

The doctor will contact you after completion of your pet's appointment. Once your pet has been returned to you, the receptionist will call you from the window for discharge. 

We ask that a face covering be worn during any/all contact with our staff members.

  • "We have been taking our dogs and cats here for at least 10 years and we have always been happy with the care we received. We like it so much that we travel 30 minutes out of our way to go there. Originally we were going to see Dr Betty Payne only, but if she is not available we have been happy with the other doctors as well. The staff are efficient and friendly. We have also used the kennel for our animals when we were on vacation and would do it again. So I highly recommend their facility."
