COVID-19 UPDATE: June 14, 2021

We appreciate all your support, patience and consideration as we have navigated the ever-changing tides of COVID-19 as a veterinary clinic.  Our doctors and staff are grateful for your flexibility as we have continued to adapt our services with curbside service throughout this past year.  As the county begins to open up, we are thrilled to announce that we will begin offering in-clinic appointments for doctor exams only starting June 14th.

Once you arrive for your appointment, we recommend checking in at the Help Desk or calling our clinic’s main number 858-453-6312.  Our reception team will ask for your cell phone number, vehicle and location, as well as if you would prefer your exam to be conducted in-clinic or curbside.

We will continue to offer curbside service until further notice, and all other appointments will be conducted curbside at this point in time.  The Help Desk will continue to operate during this time to accommodate our clients’ needs while minimizing call wait times into our front desk.  Our lobby will remain closed to adhere to social distancing guidelines, and the following protocols will be enforced for clients choosing in-clinic doctor exam appointments:

  • We will be conducting temperature checks prior to escorting you and your pet inside the clinic
  • Assistants will escort each client and their pet inside the clinic after checking in
  • Masks must be worn at all times when entering the clinic
  • Clients and pets will remain in their exam room for their appointment
  • Our restrooms will continue to be for employees only
  • Payments can be made after your appointment at the Help Desk or by calling in to our front desk

You may reference the details about these in-clinic doctor exam appointments on our website, Facebook page and phone recording message.  Further information will be provided in our email reminders for exam appointments.  We look forward to seeing you inside our clinic, and serving your veterinary needs in-person again!
