To allow ample time for all patients and scheduled surgical procedures, we operate primarily by appointment. Emergency cases shall always receive top priority, which is why occasional appointment delay is inevitable. Please realize that we make a sincere attempt to see each client on time.
Patient Arrival Policy
For your protection, and that of others, all dogs must be on a leash and properly controlled while in the waiting area or exam rooms.
All cats must be presented in an appropriate cat carrier or on a leash.
Drop Off Appointments
For your convenience, ‘drop-off’ appointments are available. A ‘drop off’ means you could bring your pet at the time that works best for you and leave him/her with us for a couple of hours. Usually we will ask you to drop off sometime in the morning so our doctors can examine the patient in between appointments or at the time purposely reserved for admitted patients. Once the doctor is done, we will give you a call to go over the diagnosis and to give you discharge instructions.
Current Vaccine Policy
For the safety of our staff and all animals in our care, our policy aligns with Flathead County’s requirement that every pet be vaccinated for Rabies by 20 weeks of age and maintain all subsequent boosters every 1-3 years. Even though we make every effort to make our patients feel comfortable during visits, they may be a little uneasy about new people, new surroundings and other pets. This is one of the reasons we ask you to restrain your pet in the lobby. We ask that animals be placed on a leash or in pet carriers before entering the lobby.
We require full payment at the time that services are rendered. For your convenience, we accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Care Credit, cash and personal checks.
