One of the beliefs of our mission statement is to provide quality and compassionate care. To achieve this, we have made some minor changes on how we will be handling all prescription medication.

Sharing medication is prohibited. All patients will need individual prescriptions which will ensure that each patient's medical record is reflecting the appropriate medication, dosage, and duration.

State's guidelines require a valid veterinary-patient relationship which is a minimum of a yearly physical examination.

We pride ourselves in providing up-to-date care for your pets. Please speak with one of our team members if you should need further clarification.

Thank you!
