Chelsea Weisse, CFVP Certified

Veterinary Assistant

I originally chose the Veterinary field when I was 8 years old and thought the Veterinarian Barbie I got for Christmas was the best thing in the world. As I got older medical sciences were fascinating to me, these reasons mixed with my adoration of dogs and cats brought me to where I am today!  I attended The West Coast College of Healthcare and graduated in October 2010. I really enjoy working in surgery but also really enjoy taking appointments with the doctors and hearing their diagnoses on all the different cases. The best thing about my job is being able to be there to support our patients and clients through the good and the bad. It’s a job where you are constantly growing and learning and very rarely have a boring day! A fun fact about me would be that I have been in the Veterinary field for over a decade now and still love it more than ever!

Dear Clients,

With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 25, 2020 the restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.

1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!

2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE

  • Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
  • Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
  • Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
  • 3. ONLINE CONSULTATIONS ARE AVAILABLE If you wish to connect with a veterinarian via message, phone or video, visit our website and follow the "Online Consultation" link.

    4. OPERATING HOURS We are OPEN with the following hours:
    Monday to Friday: 8:00 am - 5:30 pm
    Saturday: 9:00 am - 5 pm
    Sunday: Closed
