-spaying and neutering - what's involved? what's included
-being able to give information on pricing of services

Going Green - Decreasing large bag of food stock Posted on Jun 15, 2013
In June we launched our new Webstore. In an effort to become more environmentally friendly and reduce in-clinic inventory we are decreasing the amount of food we order and stock in-clinic. This will cut down on the number of times we order in a week and therefore the number of needed deliveries.
As of July 2nd 2013 - we will no longer stock bags of food over 10kg in size. The larger bags will still be available for purchase on our WEBSTORE.... You can register for free and browse for pet supplies. For a limited time - any order greater than $50 will be delivered to your home for free until Sept.30/13. After this limited time offer, delivery will be $7.95 per tote delivered to your home or office. As of Oct 1st/13 - any orders greater than $100 will still qualify for free delivery. Shop 24/7 (orders placed friday afternoon - sunday will be processed on monday) Order food, toys, litter all in one place and cut down on driving or multiple trips to multiple stores...... lets all reduce our carbon foot print.
Choose the in-clinic delivery option and you can avoid the delivery fee altogether. Plus multiple orders will arrive in one trip to our clinic where you will be able to pick up your order - again a more greener option.
In 2008 we became a mostly paperless practice.... all medical records are now computer files. Lab results and faxes are delivered to our computer instead of through the original paper fax/copier.
We make an effort to reuse packing paper for the dogs kennels. Empty food cans are recycled. Empty cardboard bottoms from cases of canned food are used as one use litter pans. We reuse grocery store bags to help clients carry supplies home in.
In 2011 we added our Digital Radiograph equipment meaning we no longer have to develop x-ray films in chemicals. Now, we snap the x-ray and it appears on our computer screen.
Please support us in our effort to go green !

WEBSTORE NOW OPEN !!!!
