Effective immediately, we will  be limiting our hours of operation to  Monday – Friday 8a.m to 5p.m. and temporarily suspending both evening and weekend appointments.

The health and well-being of you and our team remains a priority. We will continue to care for your pet's needs by providing curbside service only. Please call our office when you arrive in our parking lot. We are requiring that you wear a mask while in your car to maintain safety when our team comes to you. Thank you for your patience and understanding. 

We also ask that those of you that have less time sensitive needs relating to wellness services, grooming, elective surgery to please acknowledge that we will likely face some significant scheduling challenges over the next several months. Due to the persistently high demand for services, we have chosen to schedule current and active clients only during this time and have turned away many new client requests the past two months. We truly appreciate your loyalty and will continue to do our best to be there when you need us. With that in mind please continue to be patient and respectful of our staff as they do their best to help provide for you and your pets needs. If you will need services in the near future we would highly recommend that you visit our website at www.wexfordvet.com for a detailed explanation of our current protocols as we are still permitting only essential staff into our facilities at this time and have had to implement many hospital protocols to help keep you and our staff safe.

  • If you are sick, coughing, have a fever, or have had any exposure to a person with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 in the past several weeks, please notify us of your situation and reschedule your pet’s appointment or discuss options for a telemedicine consult with one of our doctors.
  • If it is decided by one of our doctors that your pet needs to be seen, please follow their instructions and make every effort to find a healthy person to bring your pet to the hospital or emergency clinic (PVSEC), as we will be operating under very strict CDC guidelines as described below.

In addition to the above announcements, we will continue offering Remote Health Consults to our clients. Ideally, most medical conditions are best addressed through an examination of your pet. However, given our current limitations, we are offering Telemedicine Consults as an alternative to physically bringing your pet into the clinic. This service is for existing and active patients only. The Consult is performed through a video email or text. The initial consult is $55. If a follow up exam at the clinic is deemed necessary, there is a discounted follow-up exam fee of $45 provided the pet is seen within a month of the Telemedicine Consult. Some examples of conditions that could potentially be managed by a Telemedicine Consult include skin and ear infections, behavioral concerns, upper respiratory symptoms, lameness evaluations, or episodes of mild GI distress.

Finally, please consider visiting the AVMA website for information concerning COVID-19 and your pets:
