Effective immediately, we will be restricting public access to our building. Clients will be asked to call the hospital at 610-775-7535 when they arrive. A technician will meet them outside to bring their pet in for evaluation while the clients wait in their car. Histories will be taken and diagnostic/treatment plans will be discussed over the phone.
