Dear Chippens Hill Veterinary Hospital Community,
Thank you for entrusting us with the care of your beloved pets. Although a lot has changed over the last few months, our commitment to being here to provide the best medical care for our patients and compassion for our clients remains.
We are all experiencing additional pressure and stress due to the pandemic. Our dedicated team is doing everything possible to provide your pet with the care you have always expected from us. We ask for understanding, patience and kindness for our team as they are following protocols designed to keep you, your pet and our team safe, while complying with state and local guidelines that will allow us to remain open providing care.
As you prepare for your next visit, please understand we may not be able to serve you as quickly as we have prior to the pandemic and wait times may be a little longer. Please plan ahead and allow extra time for your appointment.
All patients will be escorted into the building by a staff member. We will have clients wait in the car while we examine and care for your pets. Please be prepared to call on your cell phone when you arrive and to pay by phone with your credit card to minimize the exchange of hand held objects. Please note our amended hours of operation:
Monday - Friday 8 am to 5:30 pm
Saturday 8 am to 3 pm
Sunday 9 am to 1 pm
