To all our clients:

We are happy to finally be in our new building at 697 Grove Street as well as be in the green phase in Wayne County. We must still all be vigilant and careful in our efforts to control the spread of the COVID19 virus. We all want to keep you safe as well as our team at CRVC.

One pet owner will be allowed into the building and exam room with their pet.  Masks are no longer mandatory for fully vaccinated individuals. Un-vaccinated individuals are still required to  wear a face mask when entering the building.  We will be maintaining strict social distancing and will be continuing our intense cleaning protocols. 

We also will continue to offer curbside service if you prefer to wait in your car.  You can call when you arrive and a staff member will come out to greet you and get your pet. If you prefer, we can bring your medicine or food out to your car so you do not have to enter the building. 

We ask for your patience over the next few weeks and months.  We have many  appointments that had to be canceled during  the past three  months.  We will be working as hard as possible to get everyone in as quickly as possible but we do expect the waiting time for routine appointments to be longer than usual.  Please call early to schedule your pet’s annual visit if it’s coming up.

Thank you for all your support and understanding during these challenging  times.  We appreciate and  love our clients and patients and we are honored that you continue to put your trust in us for your pet’s healthcare.
