Day Admissions are for the convenience of our clients! We know schedules don’t always align but it’s important to have your pet seen in a timely manner. We offer a Day Admission that may be the right solution for you.
How it works:
Call our practice to get scheduled for a check-in time for your pet

Your pet will remain in a comfortable space until our veterinarian has time in the schedule to do their examination and read over your Day Admissions Form.
Once the exam is complete the doctor or staff member will contact you with findings or recommendations for diagnostics and/or treatment
During the call - together a treatment plan will be agreed upon and approved.
Estimates can be provided at this time.
Services will be performed and your pet will be ready for pick up at the discharge time Please expect discharge to take about 15 minutes.
