We are now officially offering CareCredit®. If you find yourself in a bind to pay for veterinary services, this service will provide a no interest loan for 6 months. Keep in mind that if the balance is not paid within the 6 months, a high interest rate will be charged dating back to the initial charge date. If you are interested in this service, you can apply online at: http://www.carecredit.com/vetmed/ or apply in person at the clinic.
We have just completed a beautiful dog kennel renovation. We've even added music 24/7 to help soothe your friends. Come check it out if you need boarding services in the future!
Many clients have asked about CareCredit® as a payment option. We have signed up to now offer this service and should have it available within a few weeks. If you are not aware of how this works, it is basically a credit card or loan that you can only use for veterinary care. If you are approved, you will receive an interest free loan for 6 months in which to pay for your veterinary services. We caution you that if you do not pay the balance by the end of the 6 months, you will owe a high interest rate payment dating back to when the charge was originally made. This is a great option for unexpected veterinary fees when another form of financing is not available.
We recently added an in-house chemistry machine. This will allow us to run a full blood chemistry panel in under 15 minutes. You now have the option to have a pre-anesthetic blood screen run, which may reveal hidden organ problems which will allow us to delay the anesthesia/surgery or adapt our anesthetic regimen. We can also use the unit to help make a quick diagnosis for sick pets, or for follow-up monitoring of sick pets. Ideally, for accurate results, your pet should be fasted overnight. This is not a problem for anesthesia/surgery pets because they will already be fasted. But, if your pet is sick and coming for an appointment, try not to feed them overnight if possible.
We'd love for you to leave feedback good or bad on our website. Your feedback will let us know what we are doing right, and where we need improvement. You can do so on the feedback page. Also, next time you're in the clinic we would like to take a picture of your pet with or without you to put on our website. Please ask for us to take one in case we forget!
