NEW CLIENT POLICY
In order to continue to provide exceptional care to our existing clients, we are not accepting new clients at this time. Have you been a client of St. Francis in the past, or are you a current client who has added a new pet to your family? We are happy to see your new pet! Please continue to watch our website and social media for any updates to our new client policy.
COVID 19 INFORMATION
We are currently allowing one client into the building per visit for pets who are scheduled for an exam with a veterinarian. Masks are required for all clients and staff members, regardless of vaccination status. When you arrive at St Francis, please call the designated line on the parking space signs for Appointments to reach our concierge team. A team member will collect some information from you and will ask whether you would prefer to remain curbside or whether you would like to accompany your pet into the clinic. When your exam room is prepared, a staff member will come out to your vehicle to escort you and your pet into the clinic.
Pets who are being seen for quality of life consultations or euthanasia may be accompanied by two people.
Technician appointments, drop off appointments, and surgery check-ins will remain curbside. Medication and food pick-ups will also remain curbside. Please call the appropriate number on the sign at your parking spot when you arrive and a staff member will assist you.
Thank you so much for your continued support and partnership throughout this pandemic. We are so grateful to have the amazing clients and patients that we do!
