Dear Clients,

Effective Tuesday March 1st, we will once again be allowing one pet parent to accompany their pet into their appointment. We will continue to allow two family members to attend end of life appointments.

We are happy to accommodate with a curbside appointment should you prefer or if you are feeling under the weather.

Please remember kindness matters! Disrespectful or unkind behaviour toward our team will not be tolerated and may result in refusal of service.
