To allow ample time for all patients and scheduled surgical procedures, we operate primarily by appointment. Emergency cases shall always receive top priority, which is why occasional appointment delay is inevitable. Please realize that we make a sincere attempt to see each client on time.
For your convenience, "drop-off' appointments are available. A 'drop off' means you could bring your pet at the time that works best for you and leave him/her with us for a couple of hours. Usually we will ask you to drop off' sometime in the morning so our doctors can examine the patient in between appointments or at the time purposely reserved for admitted patients. Once the doctor is done, she will give you a call to go over the diagnosis and to give you discharge instructions.
For the safety of all animals in our care, we require that all vaccinations be up to date. Even though we make every effort to make our patients feel comfortable during visits, they may be a little uneasy about new people, new surroundings and other pets. This is one of the reasons we ask you to restrain your pet. We recommend that animals be placed on a leash or in pet carriers before entering the waiting room.
Missed or Late Appointments can result in other patients needing to wait (sometimes a full day when we are completely booked) and this in turn, can lead to increased patient suffering as well as client/staff frustration. To help avoid this circumstance, we require that clients provide Laird-Eglinton Pet Hospital at least 12 hours notice should he/she be unable to attend their scheduled appointment. Should inadequate warning be provided, respectfully reserve the right to incur a $35 missed appointment fee.
We require full payment at the time that services are rendered. For your convenience, we accept Visa, MasterCard, debit and cash.
For your protection, and that of others, all dogs must be on a leash and properly controlled while in the waiting area or exam rooms. All cats must be presented in an appropriate cat carrier or on a leash.
