In August 2021, we reluctantly discontinued appointments on Saturdays due to the nationwide veterinarian shortage. At this time, like many hospitals across the US, we have still been unable to find additional veterinarians which leaves us unable to staff Saturdays for appointments.
In the past 10 months, without a doctor on staff, we have found that Saturdays yield few phone calls and few visits for prescription and other pickups. For this reason, we will be shortening our window of operation on Saturdays beginning June 25, 2022. We will remain open to the public for prescription and diet pickup as well appointment scheduling from 10:00am - 2:00pm. No controlled prescriptions will be dispensed on Saturdays as there is not a doctor in the building to access them. We will not accept cash on Saturdays - please come prepared to pay with any major credit card. As we currently don't have a doctor on premises on Saturdays, we are unable to accept any patients in the form of emergencies or otherwise.
Please contact the Practice Manager, Tracy, with any questions or concerns.
We appreciate your patience and loyalty.Kind Regards,Firgrove Veterinary Hospital
