We encourage our clients to make appointments, however emergency walk-ins are accepted during office hours.
Patients having surgery should have no food after 10 p.m. the night before the procedure (water is fine). We require pre-anesthetic blood work with our surgeries and encourage owners with older animals to do more extensive testing. Surgical check-in is between 7:30 and 8:00 a.m. At that time, we will weigh the patient and one of our technicians will meet with the owner to discuss the surgery and answer any questions. The owner is required to sign a surgery consent form.
For Overnight Patients
During regular business hours, there is always staff in the building. After hours, a Kennel Attendant member returns in the early evening to care for patients that are here over night. If any of one of them requires medical attention, the veterinarian returns to care for these patients.
We refer after-hours emergencies to Animal Emergency Clinic of Rockford

It is customary to pay for veterinary services upon their completion. The doctor can give an estimate of anticipated procedures prior to admission. We are a locally-owned small business and our ability to deliver quality animal care is based on fair fees for services rendered.
We accept cash, personal checks, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, Care Credit (www.carecredit.com) and traveler's checks. We offer a discount on the Office Call/Wellness Exam to clients bringing in multiple pets on the same visit. We also honor appropriate certificate(s) from Winnebago County Animal Services, and with prior approval from Winnebago County Humane Society, we offer discounted spays/neuters.
