During this stressful time of the uncertainty of the COVID-19 crisis, we understand the stress your pet is going through. Their routines are changed, families are not able to come into the practice during visits, things are just not right in their world. Do not hesitate to call us if your pet is showing signs of stress at home.

If your pet gets stressed at their vet visit, consider talking to your vet about options, supplements, or medications that can help. Even though the families are not with their pets, we are still trying to do everything the same as if you were there. We are still giving treats, going slow and trying to make each visit as low stress as possible.
