For the safety of our staff and clients, we have implemented a “Closed Door Policy” which means our clinic doors are no longer open to the public.Here is what that means for you:
We ask that on arrival for your appointment you call us (902)564-8356 Sydney and let us know you are in the parking lot
A member of our team will then take a history on your pet by phone, they will then meet you at our front door to take your pet inside while you return to your car
Your veterinarian will perform an examination of your pet and then call you with exam findings and any suggested treatment plans
Any necessary medications will be prepared in the clinic for you, and will be sent with your pet when we are ready to send them home
Payments for appointments can be taken over the phone or by payment at the door
All food and drug orders are still required to be called in beforehand and prepaid over the phone
All future updates will be posted on social media as our situation with COVID-19 in our province is constantly changing
We also request that clients refrain from using our emergency line for anything other than true emergencies
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to give us a call at (902) 564-8356 Sydney. With the implementation of this closed door policy, it is a longer process so we ask for your patience and co-operation during this time
Please note the phone lines may be busier, but we will get to you as soon as we can. We have zero tolerance for verbal abuse.
Again, we thank you for your patience and co-operation during this trying time.
We are OPEN with the following hours:
AMC – Sydney
Monday – Friday: 8:00 am – 7:00 pm Saturday: 8:00 am – 4:00 pm Sunday: Closed
