But it is time to welcome back all of our Horton Central friends and patients, old and new!
As of Monday, May 24, we will be allowing access to the inside of our clinic for appointments.

All of our doctors and staff are fully vaccinated or have received at least their first.

When scheduling your appointment with us, please keep the following guidelines in mind:

-we will ask that you wait in your car until we are ready to seat you for your
appointment. Please call us from the parking lot 445-4466 to let us know you have arrived.

-if you have been fully vaccinated we welcome you to come in with or without a mask
as you choose. If you have not been vaccinated, we would ask that you wear a mask when
interacting with our staff and other clients.

-to minimize crowding and help with traffic flow, we will be limiting the number of
people to one per pet, except in very special circumstances (euthanasia).

-we ask that if you or any of your family members are feeling ill the day of your
appointment that you reschedule for a different date.

-food and medication pickup will continue to be curbside only until further notice.

Drop off appointments are always available and preferable for many situations, if we are
working up a medical problem or taking radiographs.


Our goal is to keep your pets happy and healthy, and we’re dedicated to keeping them in great shape at any age.

February is Pet Dental Health Month!
