*Please note if your pet is a difficult to manage/handle, we reserve the to decline a technician appointment for your pet our staff's safety. Our technicians are trained to do safe restraint with or without muzzles and will do so unless the pet will cause injury to anyone including themselves.
There are times, when we cannot perform technician visits, but we do try to do them for you whenever possible. Technician visits cannot be done if your pet has not been seen within 3 months for a wellness visit. *If you have a younger pet (under 20 weeks of age, 4 months) and getting a vaccine booster, it will be as a Dr. appointment. Only the doctor’s have the discretion to make an exception.
