Taking care of the dog and cat members of your family since 1969!
IMPORTANT: Masks are optional, however, if you have any cold, flu or covid symptoms please wear one. We provide them free in the entryway.
NO WALK INS
Dogs and Cats (only): Seen by appointment - no walk-ins
We are currently not taking new clients at this time.
Appointments: Nationwide, animal hospitals and clinics have seen a huge increase of new patients while also dealing with staffing shortages (doctors, technicians as well as all highly trained staff). It is no different here in Chautauqua County. When calling for an appointment, availability for well visits and vaccinations may be anywhere from one to three weeks. Getting you in the same day, or even week, won't happen as we already have each appointment filled well in advance or with patients with critical needs. Please plan accordingly. There is no such thing as "just a shot", or "just a pedicure".
Emergencies: If you are an established client, we have seen your pet before and they are ill or injured, we will do our best to get you in when you call. BUT please understand that our schedule every single day is double booked with only one doctor. We are doing our best. Please be patient with our staff. They cannot make more hours in a day or create more doctors.
We are not staffed 24 hours. If your pet requires hospitalization with monitoring after hours, we will refer you to a higher level of care at an emergency hospital.
Please call ahead for medication and food refills to give our busy staff the time and attention needed. When arriving to pick up, no need to call. Come right on in.
When arriving for appointment, call from your car to check in. Your car is the waiting room! This limits pets crossing paths as well as reduces anxiety. If an exam room is available, we will have you come in and go directly into a room. If need be, we may ask you to wait in the comfort of your own car and we'll call you when a room is ready. Feel free to walk your leashed dog on our large yard and sit on the bench by the flower pots. Listen to music in your car. Dance in your seat. We won't judge!!
Also, make sure that you are in the right state. There are a couple other clinics with our name in the midwest. We get calls from people saying they are waiting in our parking lot and no one is there. The same happens to these other hospitals. It gives us a chuckle, but please call the number on the sign in front of you. Siri, on your iPhone, might be having a bad year.
This is a busy and dangerous highway. PLEASE make sure your dog is leashed and your cat is in a secure carrier.
Monday - Friday 8am to 6pm (closed Wednesdays 12-1:30 for staff meeting)
Saturdays 8am to noon
(Closed some Saturdays. Call ahead)
Closed Saturday afternoons and Sunday.
Finally, we are asking for your patience and understanding. Your kindness and good manners.
We sincerely appreciate your patience and understanding.
Celebrating Over 50 years!
Please call for an appointment! We want to make sure the appropriate time is scheduled for your pet's needs. Call and speak to one of our knowledgeable staff members to make an appointment! 679-1561
