We schedule appointments Tuesday through Friday. We recommend you allow at least one hour for an initial consultation. When you arrive at the hospital, you will need to complete paperwork and then a technician will guide you to an examination room. A specialist will complete a thorough exam on your pet, review records from your referring veterinarian and discuss treatment options with you. Consultation cost is $161. During the consultation, the doctor will provide you with an estimate for any additional diagnostics.

Recheck Appointments

Please call at least 14 days in advance to schedule a recheck appointment. This ensures that our schedule will have the availability to accommodate your schedule.


Visiting hours are 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., for approximately 30 minutes, once a day. If you wish to talk with a doctor during visitation, you'll need to schedule an appointment. If you have any concerns while visiting, please inform the technical staff and they will address it with the attending or staff doctor.

Prescription Refills

We are happy to refill your pet’s prescriptions during office hours. We request a notice of 24-48 business hours on all refills.
