When you’re at the clinic and you’re trying to calm and comfort your pet while the veterinarian performs her examination and is asking you endless questions, it can be hard to focus and give detailed and accurate answers.

Heart disease affects approximately 10% of all dogs at some point of their lives. 95% of these are usually acquired later in life (as opposed to being born with the problem).

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
Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call 506.382.0061. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will 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".

We are OPEN with the following hours:
Monday, Tuesday and Thursday: 8:00 am - 8:00 pm Wednesday and Friday: 8:00 am - 6:00 pm Saturday 9:00 am - 2:00 pm Sunday: CLOSED
