PATIENT SAFETY AND HANDLING

 

All dogs entering the hospital must be on a leash and properly controlled while in the waiting area and exam room.      Flexi-Leads are NOT recommended.

We realize that accidents do happen. If your dog soils the waiting area or outside the front doors and you do not have a cleanup bag with you, please let us know! 

All cats must be in an appropriate cat carrier or on a secure harness or leash.

**************************

Small pets like hamsters, gerbils, rats, etc. must be confined in a secure container for their safety.

Reptiles are very temperature sensitive. A secure, insulated carrier is a must. Both cold and warm temperatures can cause serious harm.

Birds can be transported in a small, dark box or pet carrier with a towel in the bottom. Make sure the box has ventilation holes and is not large enough for the bird to flap its wings.
