Fireworks can be an enjoyable and exciting event for many people, but your pets often do not feel the same way. Fireworks can spook your pet and cause an overwhelming amount of anxiety that can last for days after the traumatic event.
Please do not let your dog or cat outside if you are expecting neighbours or city events to release fireworks. Many cats and dogs go missing during fireworks and end up in shelters, or are injured as a result of roaming on the streets, or in areas where coyotes are active.
Make sure you take your dog out for walks earlier in the day.
Leave your pet unattended in the backyard.
Leave your pet tied up outside, or in the car.
Force them out of hiding in the house, if they are pacing or hiding, please leave them to do so. Interfering may add to their stress levels.
Ensure your pet is microchipped and the microchip is registered in the event of your pet going missing.
Stay calm and do not get upset if you notice your pet is showing symptoms of stress.
Speak with your veterinarian regarding calming medication, or supplements to help keep your pet relaxed during firework events.

With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 19, 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 us. 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".
3. ONLINE CONSULTATIONS ARE AVAILABLE
If you wish to connect with a veterinarian via message, phone or video, visit our website and follow the "Online Consultation" link.
4. OPERATING HOURS
We continue to be open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
Thank you for your patience and understanding and we look forward to seeing you and your furry family members again!
