PATIENT SAFETY AND HANDLING
All dogs entering the hospital must be on a leash and properly controlled while in the waiting area and exam room. Flexi-Leads are NOT recommended.
We realize that accidents do happen. If your dog soils the waiting area or outside the front doors and you do not have a cleanup bag with you, please let us know!
All cats must be in an appropriate cat carrier or on a secure harness or leash.
Small pets like hamsters, gerbils, rats, etc. must be confined in a secure container for their safety.
Reptiles are very temperature sensitive. A secure, insulated carrier is a must. Both cold and warm temperatures can cause serious harm.
Birds can be transported in a small, dark box or pet carrier with a towel in the bottom. Make sure the box has ventilation holes and is not large enough for the bird to flap its wings.
