Our team continues to be here for you and your cherished pets. We are OPEN and are now able to provide a wide range of services. To learn more about the changes we have implemented in response to COVID-19 and what to expect during your next visit, click here.
Here are a few DIY cat-safe toys made with thing laying around your home.
Newspaper – Crumpled-up ball, long and thick strands torn from the sheet, or simply laying the paper on the floor can entertain some cats. Every couple of day, we can make new ones and recycle the old paper toys. Cardboard Paper Rolls – Leave as is. Or we can cut them in different sizes. Create your own food puzzle by stuffing the varying sized rolls in an empty small box and scatter treat in and around the rolls. Once your cat has loved the roll just enough, recycle and replace with a new paper roll. Feathers – Simply attach feathers just above your cat’s level so they can bat and jump. Recycled bottle – Place holes around a recycled bottle just big enough for a kibble, this will create a great DIY interactive food dispensing toy. Cardboard box – A simple box can make a great cat palace. If you are to cut a window or door, be sure to make it big enough so nobody gets stuck. T-shirt – Cut up an old t-shirt (or material) into little strands and tie 5 pieces together to make a knot in the middle. Container – Cut holes on the cover and place some noisy toys and/or treats in the container for paw fishing.
Yarn – Cats can swallow the long threads and cause an obstruction and an unwanted visit to the emergency room. The same problem can occur with ribbon, thread, hair ties, rubber bands … Bags and Boxes – Remove any handles on bags or punched in recycled boxes to prevent your cat from getting stuck, either their little paws or head.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 4, 2020 the restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
We are allowing 1 client per pet into the hospital (up to a maximum of 3 clients in our hospital at one time). Clients are to wait in the waiting room during the exam since there is not enough space for physical distancing with the veterinarian in our small exam rooms. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us so a staff member can meet you at the door and bring you and your pet into the hospital.
We ask that you wear a mask when in our building and encourage you to bring your own.
You may choose to continue with the "closed-door" approach and we can obtain a history over the phone and then collect the pet at the door for the exam. The Veterinarian will then call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside and take care of any needed medications and payment.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
