Your veterinarians in western New York State!

We are currently at our capacity to see and treat patients and are not accepting new patients unless the owner is a current active client.
Currently, our appointments are filled with patients being seen mostly for illness, injury and on-going medical issues as well as end of life care. Annual well visits for vaccinations and exams are being booked out approximately 2-3 weeks. Please plan on that at a minimum when you call for an appointment. Elective procedures are also being scheduled 2-4 weeks out.
We are finally able to schedule in nail clips, baths and clips. Availability changes weekly. When you call we will give you times available.
We are currently boarding only cats as we need to concentrate our staff on the extra work we are doing during the weekdays.
No walk ins. Patients seen by appointments only.
We are taking the following steps to protect clients and staff:
Blocking off every other appointment to allow for thorough sanitizing as recommended by the CDC and the American Veterinary Medical Association with approved virucidal, bactericidal and fungicidal products safe for animals and people.
Hand sanitizer available to staff and clients in every room including a touchless station in the entryway.
Frequent cleaning of all surfaces including doors, counters, handles, seating areas, tables and electronics.
Limited access by non-staff and maintaining safe distances.
Wearing personal protective equipment by staff including full isolation gown, gloves, mask and eye wear.
Requiring face coverings be worn by all over mouth and nose in the the building.
In order to protect staff and clients, we are restricting the numbers of people in our facility. Our exam rooms are small and can only accommodate one visitor per appointment. Until further notice, please note the following:
When arriving for appointments, call from your car to check in and tell us what number parking space you are in. Your car is the waiting room! Please only park in a numbered spot and not off to the side or in front of the building. Each spot is numbered 1-9 with our phone number. 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.
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.
If you do not have a cell phone, please ring doorbell. We will speak to you through the intercom.
If you are hearing impaired, please have someone call and let us know your estimated time of arrival. We will wear clear face shields for lip reading.
ONLY ONE PERSON ALLOWED INSIDE PER VISIT. Exceptions are only made for end of life visits. As per state mandate, FACE MASKS REQUIRED COMPLETELY COVERING NOSE AND MOUTH.
If you are physically unable to wear a full face mask there are 2 options:
1.You can have someone else bring your pet in, or we can bring your pet in ourselves while you
wait in the car. The doctor can call you during the exam to discuss the findings and treatment options.
2. We can give you a clear disposable face shield to wear that you can take with you. Supplies are limited.
You must either wear a face mask completely covering your nose and mouth, or a clear face shield.
Without wearing one or the other we cannot allow you in our hospital.
IMPORTANT: If you have symptoms of COVID, have been exposed to someone with symptoms, or are in quarantine for any reason, please do not come to our hospital. Be honest with our staff. Make arrangements for someone else to bring your pet in for the time being.
NO HOUSECALLS - This goes without saying. Entering homes is not safe at this time.
MEDICATION AND RX FOOD OR SUPPLY ORDERS
Call ahead and pay over the phone for medication and food refills. If you do not call ahead you will have to wait as our staff may be busy answering phones and assisting other clients in exam rooms.
Our doors are unlocked now and you can walk in to pick up your orders but the same rules apply:
Only ONE PERSON can come in and must be wearing a face mask.
Please pay attention to the distance markers on the floor and walls and stand where indicated. If you do not wish to come into the waiting room while someone else is here, feel free to wait on the bench in the waiting area away from the doors.
We are truly doing our best to stay stocked with medication and supplies, but every medical industry - veterinary and human - is having issues with availability, raw materials and shipping. Some items may be delayed due to back orders, some may be allocated only to human medicine temporarily, or they may be in transit which has been unpredictable and slow. Once things are in the hands of shippers, neither us or the distributers can do anything.
Monday - Friday 8am to 6pm
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. We will be able to add more appointment slots and services as mandates change and staffing & ability to be supplied with personal protective equipment improve.
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
