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.
We’ve had a beautiful but hot summer so far in the Greater Moncton Area. Due to warm temperatures, blue-green algae are collecting along the banks of ponds and water sources all across our city and surrounding areas.
Mental health in pets is one of the most common problems overlooked by owners and veterinary staff. It’s important to spot the signs of a mental health condition at home, either its depression or anxiety, to treat appropriately.
We worry about frostbite and hypothermia in pets during the winter months, although spring and summer weather brings heat stroke and hyperthermia concerns. You may associate these risks with pets left in hot cars, although in extreme heat, it can even occur in your backyard.
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). 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 for an examination.
We ask that you wear a mask when in our building and encourage you to bring your own. While in the exam room please minimize contact and be mindful of physical distancing in the confined space.
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".
