Covid-19 Procedure as of June 14, 2021

We are happy to announce our lobby is open again to our wonderful clients and patients! At this time, we are now allowing clients in the building for appointments.  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. We invite you to come inside and check in with the receptionist.  At this time, you will provide the receptionist with a vehicle description. You then will be directed to either wait outside or in your vehicle. 

When we are ready for you, a member of our team will come out to your vehicle and escort you and your pet into an exam room. We ask that you remain in the room with your pet during the entirety of the appointment. 

Once we are finished with your pets appointment, you will be directed to have a seat in the lobby. Please keep your pet on a short leash and be mindful of others who might also be waiting in the lobby area. Restrooms will be available for clients if needed. 

The receptionist will call you to the front desk for checkout. 

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

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.

  • "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."
