defining pet care

Since 1962!

Coronavirus/Covid 19 Update

It comes as no surprise to anyone that Coronavirus is making life difficult for every one of us, both personally and professionally.  As promised, we are  writing today to keep you informed about the steps we are taking in order to continue offering medical care for your pets while keeping you, our doctors, and our staff as safe as we can.

With this in mind, we are following several other hospitals in our area by limiting the contact between our clients and our staff.  How will we do this?

For appointments:  We will ask you to pull  into our parking lot and call us from your car.  A client service representative will check your pet into our system.  A veterinary nurse will come to your car to retrieve your pet while you remain in the car.  Following the doctors examination, the doctor  will call you to discuss findings and recommendations.  When treatments are complete, your pet will be returned to you and a client service representative will bring your medications to the car and take your payment.

For surgeries:  We will follow the same  procedure as above.  We ask that you go to our website, download and fill out the drop off form and bring it with you.

For food/medication:  

NEW: Purina and Hills have both launched home delivery direct from the manufacturer! Click Here for More Information. 

If you need to pick  up food or medications for your pet, please call and we can arrange shipping of any food or prescriptions directly to your home.  Or, you can call us from your car and we will bring everything out to you!

We are also looking into a Tele-Medicine service and will keep you posted as to when that will be available.

As always, we appreciate you and we love your pets!  We will get through this trying time together.

Stay safe out there!

I would give PMC even more stars -- EXCELLENT vet; every veterinarian is wonderful and caring; the staff is great. We've been taking our dogs there since 1990 and wouldn't go anywhere else.
