Dear Value Vet Clients,
We sent out an email and a Facebook communication yesterday and wanted to add some clarity. The following is our updated schedule, including some background as we know many of you have questions or concerns.
Wellness/vaccine/nail trims/anal glands, etc: NO CHANGES
M,T,Th,Fr: 7 – noon; 1:00 – 6:00 (5:00 on Fri).
All types of walk-ins on Saturdays: NO CHANGES
7 am to 11:00 a.m
Sick/urgent need walk-ins: REQUESTING YOU TO COME EARLIER
M,T,Th,Fr: 7:00 am – 11:00 am; 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm
We take great pride in helping your pets. In the past year we have seen a significant increase in sick pets and urgent need walk-ins due to other clinics turning clients away and the general increase in pets acquired during the year following Covid. Due to these things, along with a nationwide shortage of veterinarians and technicians available to hire, we are asking for your help by bringing your sick/urgent care needs into the clinic earlier in the morning and earlier in the afternoon (see above hours). Most of our employees work 12 hour days and in order for them to have a good quality of life and keep their physical and mental status positive, they need one small break during the day. So, if you could do your best to abide by those hours when possible we would greatly appreciate it.
We understand this change may be frustrating but please know we are here for you and desire to continue to serve you and your furry friends to the very best of our ability. We are also currently in the process of expanding our space and hope to be able to hire more staff (if/when they become available) in the future to serve the growing needs of the community. We thank you for your understanding.
