IMPORTANT: TEMPORARY NEW LONDON CAT CLINIC POLICY & HOURS

** Hours we are currently available both at the clinic and on the phone:

 8 am to 6 pm Monday to Friday.  

We are now open for routine appointments ... BUT ... it is still not Business As Usual: 

  • We are now open for all routine and non-routine appointments - no restrictions.  
  • We will still be using the drop off scenario you have become accustomed to - but now, it will be into our vestibule
  • We would ask you to then wait in the car, or proceed home if you prefer and await our call.  We may be calling you from a cell phone with no number visible.
  • All touch surfaces will be wiped between appointments and thus we will be booking appointments spaced out a bit more than usual
  • We may also admit cases, for a short time, that require diagnostics or treatments, in order to facilitate physical distancing between staff and also patients

COVID-19:  NEW POLICIES

Keeping all of you are healthy and safe is our priority.  If you are coming in for a physical examination for your cat, please note our new policies above.

We ask that if you:

a) are sick with any signs suggestive of COVID-19 - cough, fever, difficulty breathing.
b) have travelled outside of Canada in the last 14 days
c) or have been in contact with someone with signs of COVID-19 (either diagnosed or suspicious)

***that you contact our clinic before coming in and we can discuss options. These may include triaging your pet, a phone consultation rather than an examination in person, having someone else bring the cat in for you or being ready with additional PPE being used by staff.
